Motörhead - One of the greatest Rock N’ Roll bands in the world; or that ever existed for that matter. Oh, that’s my Metal opinion. I’m talking about Motörhead and on this Monday, May 20th, I Metal declare that:
We Are Motörhead is Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!
Okay, now that’s out-of-the-way. Motörhead has released (at least) 20 (official) studio albums over the course of 5 decades; with countless live and compilation albums to their unparalleled credit. Whoa. This legendary band can’t be stopped nor contained and I’m very grateful for their existence.
With lineup changes comes the different eras of Motörhead; only each era is essentially still… Motörhead. At its core with founding member, bassist, vocalist and the forever iconic Lemmy Kilmister is the epitome of dirty, rotten, who-gives-a-shit Rock N’ Roll. That’s what Motörhead was, is and forever will be all about, my fellow Metal brethren.
We Are Motörhead (released back in 2000) may not be better than their classics released during the ’70′s; only We Are Motörhead is better than their last 2 studio albums. Yup, that’s my Metal opinion again. Take my Metal word for it and cash it in, We Are Motörhead is an endless experience of getting your brains ROCKED OUT and it has served me right; time and again it has.
With the title track, Stay Out Of Jail, Out To Lunch, One More Fucking Time and Stagefright / Crash & Burn, the song titles are 500% Motörhead with the fired-up Rock N’ Roll to back ‘em all up! Yes, you read that correctly, I stated: 500%. There’s an old school appeal to this Motörhead album and it’s as delectable to me as 1983′s Another Perfect Day. It doesn’t even matter if Lemmy croons like no tomorrow on One More Fucking Time; the song still kick’s ass despite the tempo.
The Punk flavoring that Motörhead’s catalog of albums can be (many times) noted for is quite present on We Are Motörhead; with the Sex Pistols 1977 iconic song God Save The Queen being covered by Lemmy and his rabid crew. A grand cover it is! Just listening to Lemmy sing this song is Rockin’ righteous and ring that Punk will never die bell.
So there y’all have it. We Are Motörhead is a worthy addition to any Metalhead’s or Rockaholic’s album collection. Motörhead Forever. Metal be thy name.
