Book Excerpt of the Day

"For Satan's Sadists, Harley Hatcher delivers one of the most memorable themes in the biker flick genre, simply called 'Satan.' The singer describes how he was 'born mean' and even at the tender age of two had earned the nickname of 'Satan.' The lyrics describe a troubled childhood against a backdrop of stately soul. Other tracks, like the brassy and irrepressibly poppy 'Gotta Stop That Feeling' and 'Is it Better to Have Loved and Lost,' make life with a biker gang sound pretty tame -- even one led by a guy named Satan."

– from Chapter 7: Rockin' Revolution of Kristopher Spencer’s Film and Television Scores, 1950-1979
