I like Dead or Alive by Bon Jovi....

Honda Honda by Beach Boys (or is it Little Honda?) I forget the title...

I think a few Prince songs mention his motorcycle, but its not the theme of the song... (maybe he did one?) it was a purple motorcycle to be more specific :deal

Please clarify your request.

Are you talking about any song that has something to do with motorcycles? Or a song that has the specific word motorcycle / bike in it -- or about a specific brand or type of motorcycle.

e.g. Born to Be Wild by Stepenwolf or Born to Run by The Boss are general motorcycle theme songs. A Crazy Little Called Love referes to taking a long ride on a motorbike.

Motorcycle by Love and Rockets
Just for Kicks by Mike Sarne

Crazy motorcycle- Genocide Super Stars

Niel Young- Unknown Legend
Bob Seger - Roll me Away

I know it's been said, but 1952 Vincent Black Lightning. Of course I thought that was by Richard Thompson (at least the version I have says it is...)

There's also a group called Motorcycle that's done a song called "As the Rush Comes," although I think it's more about drug use. Good, mellow tune, but it's definately more techno. Most of the songs already suggested in this topic are classic rock.

Another suggestion, not about motorcycles, but if you've seen the movie "Faster," is the song "Whatever Happened to my Rock and Roll." Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. I think you want the "punk version/pung song". After watching Faster, I think I'll always associate that song with bikes.

Then there's Tom Cochrane- Life is a Highway

Also found this:

And finally someone else's list of road songs:

Hope that helps

+1 on Steppenwolf "Born to be Wild"

Here's a couple more:

"Bad Motor Scooter" by Montrose
"Headin' out to the Highway" by Judas Preist

Would Ballad of Easy Rider by the Byrds qualify?

GSbiker 08-05-2006 09:12 AM

What about Michael Parks - Long Lonesome Highway?

Dr. Greg 08-05-2006 09:21 AM

Well, there's always "Leader of the Pack" by the Shangri-Las (1964).

Other good motorcycle/highway/travel/driving tracks?

Long Lonesome Highway by Dick Curless (the theme from "Then Came Bronson")
Highway Star by Deep Purple
Motorcycle Emptiness by the Manic Street Preachers
Motorbike by Sheep on Drugs
Travelling Again by Dar Williams

will post more as I think of them...
