1991 was a weird time for hard rock, with mainstream metal imploding under the weight of its own ass and everyone turning to outsider voices Neil Gaiman and Clive Barker for inspiration. The One To Sing The Blues, Cass, Single, 656578 4, Hard & Heavy Shaped Picture Disc Releases. With that in mind, here are 13 Motörhead tracks that most listeners might not know, but which should never be forgotten. Lemmy originally wrote this for German band Skew Siskin, but thankfully Motörhead ended up doing it themselves.

Because their big hits are so very massive, it’s easy to forget that Motörhead have 22 studio albums (think about that  — 22 studio albums). The 20 best Motörhead songs ever. let me know please. Some bands’ fan solidarity tracks are about never being alone and making the world rise to meet your standard. This is a slow moving, smokin’ blues song, one that allows Lemmy to display a wider range of his vocal repertoire. Sure, Motörhead were admittedly a band focused on writing some big, memorable singles — hell, they changed their name from Bastard to make it onto Top Of The Pops — but to forget those tracks that were never featured on VH1 or covered by Metallica does a disservice to the band’s legacy, and to the listener themselves, who misses out on some incredible tunes by only scraping the surface. Every Metallica album ranked from worst to best, System Of A Down’s Toxicity: how four freaks made the 21st century’s first masterpiece, We played Pat Sharp from Fun House metal’s most fun songs and these are his thoughts, Metal Hammer Podcast: System Of A Down Special, Watch 20 of metal’s hottest new bands at the first ever Pulse Of The Maggots Fest, System Of A Down’s New Music: Our First Impressions, System Of A Down release first new music in 15 years. Yes, Ace Of Spades is Motörhead’s greatest anthem, the one they performed on an episode of The Young Ones, the one that graced every live show and the one that everyone - even people that have never heard anything else Motörhead ever recorded – knows inside out and back to front.

Acting as a companion to the crushing Orgasmatron, Brotherhood Of Man off of 2010’s The World Is Yours is a misanthropic stomper, speaking the truth about humanity’s passion for its own demise. At the same time, the verses and choruses have singalong melodies to them that add a classic-rock jam to that sense of breakneck rage, and the lyrics about being a speed-fed trucker are furiously blue-collar. You can tell he and the rest of the band are living the sentiments, not just strumming their way through. Where shall we go today?

Just one man and his machine, riding forever into the sunset. Here are the 20 best. Yes, the lyrics come from the clichéd end of the blues – lonesome man bemoans the woman who cheated on him – but there’s a sly, wry humour at work. Dom Lawson, Motörhead’s influence on metal often overshadows how in tune they were with punk rock. Plus, of course, it inspired one of the greatest stage sets of all time – as shown on the cover of none-more-seminal live album No Sleep Til Hammersmith in 1981. The track takes previous mercenary anthems like The Hammer to a ferocious new level, immersing itself in the obscene mental chaos of a serial psychopath.

The performance is primitive and stripped bare, but that’s what made it all wotk. – AOR. But it captured the sparseness of the Fritz Lang movie quite brilliantly. Memorably covered by both Sepultura and Satyricon, Orgasmatron provided the album of the same name with its devastating finale, while introducing a then recently convened new lineup featuring Lemmy alongside guitarists Phil Campbell and Wurzel and drummer Pete Gill and pointing to a subtle broadening of the band’s musical vision.

Visit our corporate site. Fast, furious and punk as fuck, its re-imagining of the blues as a flat-out weapon of destruction encapsulates everything that made Motörhead such a thrilling proposition, not to mention one of the few bands that united punks and metalheads back in the days when it seemed that never the twain would meet.

You voted in the thousands, and – cue rumbling bass – here are the results: the 20 greatest Motörhead songs of all time…. Cheers & Thankx!

Unlike his usual bark, Lemmy’s voice is a low growl on this one, the sneer of contempt on his lips audible as he recites lyrics like, “We are worse than animals, we hunger for the kill/We put our faith in maniacs — the triumph of the will.” That, alongside the militant cheers peppered throughout the track, make this song as harrowing as it is compelling. We may have said a sad goodbye to its creator, but Ace Of Spades is immortal. 40 years on, Motörhead’s Overkill is as awesome as ever, Moviehead: A journey through the big-screen career of Motörhead’s Lemmy, My Chem, Alice In Chains And More Announce Record Store Day Black Friday Releases, Foo Fighters Announce New Album Medicine At Midnight, Listen To New Song Shame Shame.
