Hells Angels MC turns 70 years old

It started on March 17, 1948, in San Bernardino, California. The 'Hells Angels' is most-commonly attributed to the Howard Hughes movie of the same name, about World War II bombers. The "Berdoo" chapter is still alive and well to this day.
That group's 70th anniversary party is scheduled for this weekend.

The group's 'Death Head' is easily one of the most recognizable brands of the 20th century.
In 1957 Sonny Barger founded the Oakland chapter. He would go on to become the face of the club.

Today the HAMC has more than 100 chapters in 29 countries.
