Meaning and history

Motorhead, forged in 1975 by Lemmy Kilmister in London, after his exit from Hawkwind, struck chords in rock’s anvil. Their ’77 debut album, “Motorhead,” began their ascent. With the release of “Overkill” and “Bomber” in ’79, and “Ace of Spades” in ’80, they etched a relentless sound. Lemmy’s gravelly voice and Phil Taylor’s thunderous drums, paired with “Fast” Eddie Clarke’s searing guitar, defined their sonic assault. The live album “No Sleep ’til Hammersmith” in ’81 topped UK charts, a first for them. Through the ’80s and ’90s, lineup changes brought in fresh talent like “Würzel” and Phil Campbell, keeping their sound fierce. Motorhead’s raw ethos influenced not just music but the very culture of metal, inspiring a wardrobe of leather and studs.
