Although not a song explicitly about motorcycles, I’m including this song on the technicality of it being performed by the band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Stylistically, “Whatever Happened To My Rock ‘N’ Roll” has the driving force one typically expects from a good motorcycle song. Additionally, the chorus could easily be about riding:

I fell in love with the sweet sensation
I gave my heart to a simple chord
I gave my soul to a new religion
Whatever happened to you?

Finally, the real reason that the song has become inseparable from motorcycles for many riders is the fact that it was chosen by the producers of the 2003 MotoGP documentary Faster to be used in the movie’s trailer.
