Here it is Wednesday morning and you’re no doubt suffering PTSD from another nail-biting and horrifically violent episode of everybody’s favorite biker drama, Sons Of Anarchy. But way before SAMCRO brought 1%er culture into people’s living rooms, rock n’ rollers were scaring norms and singing tomes to badasses and their two-wheeled death machines. From Steppenwolf’s ode to getting out on that highway, “Born To Be Wild,” to Motörhead’s Hell’s Angels tribute “Iron Horse/Born to Lose,” outlaw rockers have always had a great affinity for outlaw bikers and some of them have been known to mount a steel horse from time to time as well.  Plus the bikers always had the best drugs, oh wait, I guess I’m not supposed to say that, what I mean is….ah, you know what, let’s just drop the subject. Look, what’s not in doubt is rock n’ roll is badass, motorcycles are badass, so what could be more badass than 15 badass pics of rockers on motorcycles? Besides an actual outlaw biker that is (they’re much scarier in person).

Hear motorcycle enthusiast Tommy Lee and bandmate Mick Mars talk about Mötley Crüe’s final tour.
