    Get your motor runnin’
    Head out on the highway
    Lookin’ for adventure
    And whatever comes our way
    Yeah Darlin’ go make it happen
    Take the world in a love embrace
    Fire all of your guns at once
    And explode into space

    I like smoke and lightning
    Heavy metal thunder
    Racin’ with the wind
    And the feelin’ that I’m under
    Yeah Darlin’ go make it happen
    Take the world in a love embrace
    Fire all of your guns at once
    And explode into space

    Like a true nature’s child
    We were born, born to be wild
    We can climb so high
    I never wanna die

    Born to be wild
    Born to be wild

    Oh, yeah, that’s right. That’s what’s it’s all about, all right. But talkin’ about it and bein’ it, that’s two different things. I mean, it’s real hard to be free when you are bought and sold in the marketplace. Of course, don’t ever tell anybody that they’re not free, ‘cause then they’re gonna get real busy killin’ and maimin’ to prove to you that they are. Oh, yeah, they’re gonna talk to you, and talk to you, and talk to you about individual freedom. But they see a free individual, it’s gonna scare ’em.

    Apparently, that was the first time the words ‘heavy’ and ‘metal’ were used together.

    They have more fun when BD’s not there.

    Some music critics considered Steppenwolf one of early heavy metal bands.

    Well, we white kids were raised by the buttoned-down Greatest Generation, so it took a while to discover what badass was supposed to look like.

    You would be suprised. R80s and r100s are the bike of choice for individuals who don’t quite fit the mold- so to speak. There is an entire subculture devoted to keeping them rolling. I know one guy who has ridden his more than a million miles.

    Back then, it was shocking to say “freakin’” in a comic.
