Motorhead is one of the few bands who successfully blended elements of punk and heavy metal. Just about every metal band has cited them as an influence (especially thrash). Their catalog is massive, but here are a few of their many great songs.

Overkill – this song is considered one of the first songs to utilize double bass drums.

Bomber – Good live version from back in the day.

Killed by Death – This is probably my favorite Motorhead song. The video is so bad it’s good. Ha.

I Ain’t No Nice Guy – A rare acoustic song from Motorhead. Who says Lemmy doesn’t have a soft side?

    I'll be seeing them for the who knows what time when Gigantour rolls through Dallas on March 1. Also appearing: Megadeth, Lacuna Coil, and Volbeat. Oh yeah... I got to see a surprise performance from a makeup-less King Diamond over the weekend! \m/

  2. Awesome.

    And very cool about the King Diamond show. I'm still not totally into his solo stuff, but I've become a big fan of Mercyful Fate.
