“The scariest part of that song ‘Born to be Wild’ is when they find a head out on the highway”

The song “Born to Be Wild”  by Steppenwolf, featured in the motorcycle travel movie Easy Rider (1969), contains the lyrics, “Head out on the highway.”
   
“I think the scariest part of that song “Born to be Wild” is when they find a head out on the highway” is a joke that was posted on Twitter by John Moe on July 23, 2020. The joke has been printed on many images.
 
       
Wikipedia: Born to Be Wild 
“Born to Be Wild” is a song written by Mars Bonfire and first performed by the band Steppenwolf. It is often invoked in both popular and counter culture to denote a biker appearance or attitude. It is most notably featured in the 1969 filmEasy Rider. Sometimes, “Born to Be Wild” is described as the first heavy metal song, and the second-verse lyric “heavy metal thunder” marks the first use of this term in rock music (although not as a description of a musical style but rather a motorcycle).
