Rock 'N' Roll is real music. None like it. Rest is trash. From Elvis to the 80's is real rock. That's the Rock 'N' Roll Era

Born to Be Wild by Steppenwolf, such a classic Kick-A** rock jam. I like smoking lightning, heavy metal Thunder. It was the first time ever used in a song. Heavy Metal! Steppenwolf rocks! Totally awesome I Was Born to Be Wild, but I can be Tamed. LOL!! Rock on!
