What biker gang do the lost resemble?

Recommended Posts

Matt21

I was just wondering what real life biker gang the lost resemble. I think the Angels of death resemble the hells angels, but what about the lost ?

Here's a list:

 

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Outlaw_Motorcycle_Clubs

 

 

Also, if you go to the Angels of death website in the game and look around it, i think it resembles this

Hells angels, despite their ingame website of the AoD resembling the real website of Hells angels. I mean hell even the Lost clubhouse is designed like the Hell's Angels one.

Maybe the Lost resemble

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outlaws_Motorcycle_Club

 

because if you look on the page there are different references to the lost, one of them being

 

"1969 "God Forgives, Outlaws Don't" becomes the club's motto."

That is similar to " The almighty forgives, the lost don't"

Maybe it's a mix of Motorcycle clubs what they are based upon ?

I'd say so. They problably took information and ideas from a bunch of different gangs/clubs. smile.gif

This is a good discussion; I honestly know nothing about biker clubs and all that, so I can't give an input, but I do think that the Lost Clubhouse's door looks like the one shown on the Hells Angels website, as Wenis IV said before me.

Maybe. But they resemble the Outlaws. AoD is obviously Hells Angels though.

Oh yeah definitely, AoD is HA. Way too many similarities to be otherwise, methinks.

The Lost can't be modeled after the Hells Angels because they make it pretty obvious that they're not racist (and the AoD makes it pretty obvious that they are). Oh, and it helps that the ANGELS of Death have ANGELS in their name just like the Hells ANGELS.

I think they look exactly like the Mongols. the mongols are also mixed raced and have been in a very public war with the hells angels over the last 30 years.

I personally think they are based on the biker gang culture in general and thats it.

To say i think they resemble the mongols because of the picture is nieve, all biker gangs that are involved in crime, gang wars ect wear leather jackets with top and bottom rocker patches on.

 

If they have tried to resemble the HA with the AOD then i can be pretty sure there would of been some kind of contact with the HA first as even trying to take a picture of there site is impossible let alone copying it and getting away with it. The Hells Angels, Mongols, Banditios, Out Laws and the Pagans all take there brotherhood, titles, patches and names very seriously so i fell sorry for any one that is going to try and rip them off without some kind of acknowledgement first.

As far as I can tell the Lost are based on a group called "The Nomads"

Hell, their patches almost look identical.

 

Try catching the history channel program "Gangland" they do an episode all about them.

Nomads established 2004? Doesn't seem like a lot of history.

 

Rockstar mixed up a bunch of things so nothing matches exactly. Even though the Lost clubhouse looks like the Hells Angels, the Hells Angels is in Manhattan (very near Rockstar) so the Alderney location doesn't go with the look.

Your right magic-al, rockstar did a great job keeping it totally ambiguous.

 

They are alot like many motorcycle clubs and yet not too much like any one club.

 

I think it allows the player to more easily empathise with the charectors as they can identify with which ever biker group they may have seen in real life.

 

Love 'em or hate 'em, Rockstar does know how to paint a hell of a picture for us to play in.

Lost are clearly based on Outlaws...Like said before, they even stole their motto. Outlaws wear Black and White, so do The Lost.

 

And AoD are very much a spoof of the Hells Angels, they wear the same colors and the name is only slightly altered. Also the HA are known to be bigger and more aggressive than local biker clubs...which is exactly what The Lost reminds me of, a local Outlaws chapter trying to defend against an invading barbarian empire (whom I support, AFFA). Lots of parallels between 81 and Outlaw conflicts of the past.

I actually think the Lost seem a lot more like the Pagans than any other club... though I do see a little influence from the Outlaws and Mongols as well. Someone mentioned the show Gangland which recently did an episode on the Pagans and I thought there were more parallels with them than the Outlaws by far. The Pagans are the smallest and most secretive of the original "Big Four Outlaw MCs" (Hells Angels, Outlaws, Bandidos, and Pagans), but they are also reputed to be very violent. Where as the Hells Angels try to be media darlings... the Pagans apparently absolutely hate that and aren't into having a huge club, they would rather have a small secretive band of true BROTHERS... The Pagans are also based in the Northeast... MD, PA, NJ, and NY (like the Lost). Recently the Hells Angels tried to move into Philadelphia and Long Island and the Pagans, though much smaller... just went psycho and chased them out... again a lot like the Lost chasing the AOD out of Alderney which is based on Jersey. The Pagans they interviewed on Gangland also mentioned that racism had nothing to do with the Pagans... the guy mentioned that they wore swastikas back in the 70s for shock value but stopped because they didn't want to be associated with actually believing that sorta thing, where as clubs like the Hells Angels, Outlaws, and Bandidos generally embrace white supremacist views; yet again something we see in common with the Lost who have black and jewish members and refer to the AOD as racist pricks. Ofcourse the way the Lost dress reminds me a bit more of the Mongols and Billy has that quote that is very similar to the Outlaws motto... still I think over all they are closest to the Pagans.

Yeah, all in all, i think R* based them on numerous Biker gangs.
