Steppenwolf is a Canadian-American rock group that was prominent in the late 1960s. The group was formed in 1967 in Los Angeles by vocalist John Kay, guitarist Michael Monarch, bassist Rushton Moreve, keyboardist Goldy McJohn and drummer Jerry Edmonton after the dissolution of Toronto group The Sparrows.


The name change from The Sparrows to Steppenwolf was suggested to Kay by Gabriel Mekler, being inspired by Hermann Hesse's novel of the same name.


Steppenwolf's first two singles were 1967’s “A Girl I Knew” and 1968’s “Sookie Sookie.” The band finally rocketed to worldwide fame after their third single “Born to Be Wild” was released in 1968, as well as their version of Hoyt Axton’s “The Pusher” and was prominently used in the 1969 cult film “Easy Rider.” Both titles originally had been released on the band's debut self-titled 1968 album.
