Quotes:

I am not, nor have I ever been a racist. And neither should you be. After all, how can you hate a race? Can't you tell who's OK and who's an asshole? Politicians love to exploit the racism factor, it turns us against each other while distracting us from throwing them out of office. Yet look at a war like Vietnam - you have white soldiers, black soldiers, Orientals and Red men all together with common cause, a mission. Now we're getting so advanced and we're sending space probes out to the stars. What are we sending out there with them? HATE? Hasta la vista, motherfuckers!

Unfortunately for Mot├Ârhead fans, Lemmy is finally feeling the Aftershock of thirty-something years of partying.

Band Name Origins:

  • "Motorhead" is British slang for a speed freak. Lemmy wrote a song by that title. Also, at least in America, a "motorhead" is an auto engine enthusiast, a car junkie (I once saw a newspaper article about Japanese motorheads who love US car models). Submitted by: Thrasher
  • "It was the last song Lemmy wrote when he was in Hawkwind. The song "Motorhead" is essentially a cover of Hawkwind's version. (According to the Motorhead website.)" The above post by Guillermo is correct. What they don't mention on their website is that Motorhead is a slang term used in Britian, mostly by biker types, to refer to an amphetamine user. Lemmy K. wrote at least one other song about his love of speed (Speedfreak). He also had to have all his teeth pulled at a rather young age, if you get my drift. Submitted by: Valis

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Wrestling entrance themes"
Motorhead performed three different themes for professional wrestler Triple H, most notably "The Game", his longest running theme.
Submitted by: JeReMy
"first speed metal band"
This band started out as just heavy metal but punk rock had just come into own. Motorhead added the velocity (speed) and some attitude of punk to its loud metal sound, creating the fusion hybrid style of speed metal (AKA "thrash"). To this day metal heads, punks, critics and music pundits debate on what to label this music. Singer/bassist Lemmy says it's just rock'n'roll. Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax, Slayer and countless other bands owe a huge debt to Motorhead. Big time.
