1972: Members of the rock band Steppenwolf, best known for the top 10 hits "Born to Be Wild," "Magic Carpet Ride" and "Rock Me," announce they are splitting up, saying, "We were locked into an image and style of music and there was nothing for us to look forward to." The same day, Los Angeles Mayor Sam Yorty declared it "Steppenwolf Day" in the city.
