Die komplette Beat Club-Folge mit diesem Auftritt jetzt im iTunes Store erhältlich! "Heavy Metal Thunder" im Beat Club! Steppenwolf sind "Born To Be Wild" in Bremen am 07.06.1969! Der Song, bekannt aus dem Peter Fonda/ Dennis Hopper Road Movie "Easy Rider", wurde zur Biker-Hymne und wird für immer mit dem Image von Motorrädern, Outlaws, Rockern und Freiheit verbunden sein. Sometimes described as the first heavy metal song in music history - primarily for the line "heavy metal thunder" in the second verse - the song "Born To Be Wild" is most popular as part of the soundtrack to the Dennis Hopper/ Peter Fonda movie "Easy Rider". First intended as one of many songs for the soundtrack, the filmmakers quickly realised the potential of the song. Finally, the song appeared in the opening credits of the movie, while Hopper and Fonda riding their Harley choppers through the highways of the American West. Since that time, the song is often associated with a biker and rocker attitude.

Easy Rider, a 1969 American road movie written by Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper and Terry Southern and directed by Hopper, about two bikers who travel through the American Southwest and South. It stars Fonda, Hopper, and Jack Nicholson and was produced by Fonda. Easy Rider helped spark the New Hollywood phase of filmmaking during the late sixties. As a landmark counterculture film and "touchstone for a generation" that "captured the national imagination," Easy Rider explores the societal landscape, issues, and tensions in the United States during the 1960s, such as the rise and fall of the hippie movement, drug use, and communal lifestyle.

While dropping acid with George Harrison and John Lennon in Los Angeles, Harrison blurted out that he thought he was going to die. "I think I'm going to die man," he said; but Peter Fonda reassured him. "I know what it's like to be dead..." Hence the term: "I know what it's like to be dead, I know what it is to be sad."
