I know motorhead is not particularly metal and they don't like being called metal but the did basically start thrash. Search bar came up with nothing.

Love them hate them? discuss. I just want to say I would be honored to be one of Lemmy's moles.

Then he'll lose his magic powers and just be another bass player to laugh at.

Lemmy does not play the bass, he plays a guitar with 4 strings.

Not particularly metal? New Wave of British Heavy Metal.
They're as metal as Iron Maiden or Judas Priest, what more do you need?

Ask Maiden and Priest if they are metal.


...done that? Good.


Now ask Motorhead, notice the differince in response.

Just because Lemmy refuses to admit his metalness, doesn't mean they aren't.

Anyway, fvckin awesome band.

Erm, no? Maiden definitely don't like to think of themselves as metal.
Both Maiden and Motorhead come from the same era, I don't see where you're finding this great difference between them.

Priest loves to go on about how metal they are though, or rather Halford likes to.

And who cares? Artists can never define themselves, thats for us to decide.

wow im surprised this is the first motorhead thread.

but i'd say their a metal band, they defiantely have a similar sound to bands like early metallica and other thrash stuff
Sig space available, give me some praise
#14
Some Venom songs sound excatly like Motorhead!


Lemmy rock though!

Last year on Metalcamp Motorhead where headliners and Lemmy went to get some whiskey and the singer from CoF Dany or whaterver he is saw him and also went to the bar to get some whsikey! Unfortunetly for Dany they sent him back to buy some coupons! It was hilarious! Than Dany got all angry and they only played for 15 minutes, than he ate some pills and drank Jagermeister and totaly lost his mind!

poor Lemmy didnt eaven know what trouble he started!
#15
Motorhead are a rock'n'roll band who play heavy metal, end of argument.
But anyway.
I've seen them three times now, and they have been awesome (and deafening) each time, and they are just as constistant in the quality of their releases.

"Don't forget us, we're Motorhead and we play Rock n' Roll" - Lemmy Kilminster

This was taken from one of their gigs during their Inferno tour in '04, Lemmy always mantained that he played heavy rock, but we all know of his metalness . Any man who can still bang groupies by the dozen in his 60's has my utmost repect. Plus they embody like the whole spirit of metal. Songs like Ace Of Spades, Killed By Death, Live To Win, Iron Horse, these songs are like the life codes that many metalheads live by man. long live Lemmy!

Everything about Motorhead is metal, the speed, the loudness and heaviness define the genre. They also helped create the best metal genre - Thrash!!!!
#19
Jailbait, oh it ain't too late.
Jailbat baby, get down.

Lemmy is god.


For for gods sake Killed by Death? how awesome does that sound just as a title.

Rock 'n' mole! (?)

Motorhead is just badass. That's all there is to it.
Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away...

Awesome band. Saw them supported by Sepultura in Wales a few years back. One of the best gigs I've ever been to.

No, they are not metal, they are hard rock.

Also, if anybody ever gets the chance, I'd highly recommend reading White Line Fever - Lemmy's biography. It's brilliant!
#25
You can't pop Lemmys moles, If you do he will die, by all rights he should be dead because of the amount of drugs he's taken and alchol he's drunk. That is how metal he is.


I should be hopefully going to see Motorhead for the first time, they're touring with Saxon. Two of my fav bands

My favorite album is def. Orgasmatron. That album was epic. And I love Sepultura's cover of the title track.

Inferno is my favorite by far. Anyone know how their new album is? i can't wait to order it.

i asked this question(s) about the article on Motorhead's new album, but i didn't get any real answer, so here I am


i'm assuming that motorhead is signed to a major label, so how could they be on the indie chart? Do you have to be on an indie label to get on the indie chart?


btw, for those who didn't read the article, it said that motorheads new album reached top 5 on the indie charts...
#36
There is only one thing I didn't like about Motorhead when I saw them, and it was how they brought out strippers onto the stage for the last song. It was a really cheap trick and I've lost some respect for them now.

I answered that in the article recently but I'll answer it here too. They aren't signed to one of the "major labels", so they go on the "indie" chart, regardless of whether they/their label are "really" indie. They are signed to Steamhammer, the metal label of SPV of Germany.
