Here are the MotorMouthRadio-Approved Motorcycle (Culture) Movies:

  1. Easy Rider (1968): This one seems to rise to the top of the heap on most lists. This all-time classic biker buddy flick is light on action but high on existentialism. More of a psychedelic drug plot than a rough and tumble stereotypical biker film, this one turns out real bad for the stars and gave me a respect for shotguns.
  2. Hells Angels Forever (1966): With a cast of H.A. club members & music from Jerry Garcia, Johnny Paycheck & Bo Diddley, this movie is the “true story of an American phenomenon”.
  3. It’s a Revolution, Mother (1969) originally titled “Biker Babylon” There’s footage from an anti-Vietnam peace rally in Washington D.C., and a free concert held somewhere in Florida, but the real reason to watch this flick is the coverage the 1% club The Aliens from NJ are featured in. If you like Panhead choppers & gritty clubhouse conversation this is the one for you.
  4. Electra Glide in Blue (1973): Bored with traffic duty a bike cop gets re-assigned to the Homicide Division. Along with Robert Blake, Peter Cetera (bassist & lead singer of the Rock/Blues/Jazz band Chicago), plays Bob Zemko. A character named “the Beard” is played by an actor whose real name is Bob Zemko. Cops in the movie ride 1970 Harley Davidson Electra Glides…hence the title. Blake didn’t like the title and instead preferred “Chopper Coppers”. Fans of this popular garbage barge ride will be in 7th heaven after watching the road footage found within.
  5. Hells Angels on Wheels (1967): Starring Jack Nicholson and a biker movie favorite, Adam Roarke. Jack walks away from his boring gas jockey job to ride and party with the club. This is another true grit style movie featuring then active members of the Northern Ca. H.A.
  6. Hell Ride (2008): Conceived, written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, Easy Rider’s Dennis Hopper shows up in this flick that may be light on plot but is certainly heavy with righteous choppers. “Hell Ride is a savagely enjoyable good time where the women are hot, the bikes are even hotter, and the action never stops”.
  7. Rebel Rousers (1970): Jack Nicholson again, this time paired with Bruce Dern & Dean Stanton leads a biker gang out looking for kicks and general mayhem. This movie is heavy on sex, brotherhood & the freedom of the road, much like its predecessor Easy Rider.
