Steppenwolf 7 is the fifth studio album by Canadian-American rock band Steppenwolf. The album was released in November 1970, by Dunhill Records. It is the first Steppenwolf album with new bass player George Biondo. The album’s numerical title reflects the fact that it was the band’s seventh album release for ABC/Dunhill records (including the four preceding studio LP’s, as well as two live albums). While the album featured Steppenwolf’s trademark rock and roll sounds, none of the songs were able to make the top 40. The album featured a cover of Hoyt Axton’s “Snowblind Friend”, their second cover of one of his antidrug songs (the first being “The Pusher”). Along with “Who Needs Ya”, it was one of two singles from the album which made the charts, but fell short of the top 40. The album track “Renegade” is autobiographical for lead vocalist John Kay, recounting his flight with his mother from the Soviet occupation zone to the West in 1948.
The intro to “Earschplittenloudenboomer” is spoken by Kay partially in German.
