Yes, it's a real shame this weird film only got released in the states on this appalling, soundtrack-less DVD. Aparrently, the rights for the music were never properly cleared, and the DVD company simply chose to take it all off the soundtrack, together with a lot of other crucial sounds. It makes the viewing of this rock 'n' roll film totally surreal, for sure ! It's too bad, because the music is great (mostly obscure garage bands from the sixties), and very important to the movie's feel. It is possible to track down the Finnish DVD, which is nicely packaged and which contains the music and all the great Harley-Davidson sounds. The film was entirely shot in Finland by a French director (his first feature), with Finnish actors and real-life bikers, who were later dubbed into English by American actors based in Paris. It's a crazy, hybrid, off-beat, wacky and tongue-in-cheek venture which remains an undiscovered, buried lost classic ! And yes, it is really THE Jim Jarmusch doing a cameo as the decapitating Silver Rider !
