Not a "biker chick" myself (although I can see the appeal of being out on the road) I do genuinely love all the songs listed, which I have on good authority bikers love listening to. Whether you are a biker or not, which songs would you associate with bikers? Feel free to add any you think deserves to be here :)

The Top Ten

1 Beer Drinkers & Hellraisers - ZZ Top Beer Drinkers & Hellraisers - ZZ Top

Primo choice. Was playing' this in the biker bars back when it and I were both young. (Depressing).

2 Black Betty - Ram Jam Black Betty - Ram Jam

The Contenders

11 Born to Be Wild - Steppenwolf
12 Cheap Sunglasses - ZZ Top
13 Caledonia River - King Biscuit Boy

Not a true biker myself but as I mentioned in the list description, I can see the appeal of being and feeling free on those machines. If I were a biker, I'd listen to this the most (although I already do listen to it a lot). I absolutely love it. - Britgirl

14 On the Road Again - Canned Heat

Also "Sugar Bee."

15 La Grange - ZZ Top
16 In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida - Iron Butterfly

Primal mood music evoking, perhaps, courtly romance against a background of dark, monochromatic, medieval odyssies of war. (Or maybe it's just acid rock. Whaddu I know? :). Lots of influence from Hendrix, some from Butterfield's "East-West," with a smattering of Arthur Brown. There's a story behind the title. The short version is that it's an inebriated corruption of "in the Garden of Eden."

"Whaddu I know? " You modest man, you. I'd go with "romance against a background of dark, monochromatic; medieval odyssies of war" (it sounds much more poetic than "acid rock":)) Definitely getting Arthur Brown in there. Do I like the song? Well, yes! But as about the title, I personally prefer the "inebriated" version. They sound very similar anyway. - Britgirl

Ya know, you right. Went back and listened to this for the first time in quite a while, and gotta say, Arthur Brown a bit more than t'other two. Good call:).
