The licensing for the Easy Rider soundtrack came to $1 million, more than the budget for the film itself, but you can hardly blame the producers for going whole hog (pardon the pun) on the tunes for their iconic flick. Because if you're gonna have a couple of motorcycle-ridin' pseudo-hippies go on a cross country road trip smashing commune chicks, turning on alcoholic lawyers, and generally inflaming the local populace, you're gonna need some Steppenwolf and you're gonna need some Byrds, and you're definitely gonna need some Jimi Hendrix.
