What Do Other Best-Biker-Song Lists Have
Two songs are the most frequently cited on online forums and articles as the most favorite or best biker songs ever—Born to Be Wild performed by Steppenwolf and Bon Jovi’s Wanted Dead or Alive. Born to Be Wild appears in many various-artists motorcycle song albums, and is often listed as the best biker song ever. Other songs like Roll Me Away performed by Bob Seger also make it to favorite motorcycle song lists.
People often confuse songs about motorcycles as being the only ones to consider when making a list of best biker songs. That’s why many best biker song lists I found over the web were full of mediocre songs. Little Honda by Hondels, for example, can be found in many lists of best biker songs.
Biker songs should not necessary depict motorcycles. There are many other themes related to the culture like speed, freedom, patriotism, rebelliousness, and the music genres hard rock, rock, and heavy metal. Leatherup.com created a list of best biker songs that cover some of these themes, including riding and motorcycles.
Leatherup’s List of Best Biker Songs
#1 This Life, by Curtis Stigers & The Forest Rangers (the Sons of Anarchy Theme Song). The creators of Sons of Anarchy use quality custom music to establish the atmosphere of the show. This Life, written and recorded for the series, is definitely the most impressive.
#2 I Can’t Drive 55 by Sammy Hagar. Though the lyrics don’t go “I can’t ride 55,” it’s still a song about speed. Not surprisingly, it was chosen for a biker mayhem scene in Back to the Future Part II
#3 Highway to Hell by AC/DC
#4 Bad to the Bone by George Thorogood
#5 Wanted Dead or Alive by Jon Bon Jovi
