Damnation Alley

Roger Zelazny's post-apocalyptic novel Damnation Alley (1969) is one of the few books to have both a song and a movie based on it. The film version, which has almost nothing to do with the original story, and the Hawkwind song, which does, both  make for a great mashup.

Do you know something Jerry, I have never seen the film - or at least, I have no recollection of seeing the movie.

You aren't missing much. It's super cheesy. The real star was the Landmaster, which in true 1970s style had an elastic waistband. You're better off just reading the book.
