Motorcycle songs
« on: October 23, 2012, 02:19:14 am »
My band are looking for a new cover song. We do strictly motorcycle songs. Www.theviciouscycles.bandcamp.com
Garage/punk/rockandroll

I have been thinking "Mororbikin" by Chris Spedding or "My little sister rides a motorbike" by Crazy Cavan. Gimmie your ideas.

We haven't done Arlo's song yet, but it's a constant theme. Keep em coming. Any genre as we can change it up.

Yeah, they don't mention specific bikes, but the genre is right.

Don't love Bon Jovi. Listened to that Meatmen song, there is a mention of a Suzuki (I think) 900. Water cooled etc.
