Steppenwolf revved up their rock 'n' roll engines for this chrome-plated biker classic that foresaw the term 'heavy metal.' "Get your motor runnin' / Head out on the highway / Looking for adventure / In whatever comes our way," roars lead singer John Kay in the opening verse to the US band's 1968 hit, which peaked at Number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles charts and was featured on Steppenwolf's debut self-titled album. "Born to Be Wild" gave the band a huge following thanks to its inclusion on the radio and the track was famously used in the 1969 counterculture film favorite Easy Rider, starring Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda as bikers who ride from Los Angeles to New Orleans. "Born to Be Wild" has also been highlighted for its use of the term 'heavy metal' in the second verse ("I like smoke and lightnin' / Heavy metal thunder). In 2018, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame named the track as one of the first five singles that shaped rock and roll.
