Of course!
I have to admit that it is a very catchy tune. The odd thing about it, from my own personal experience, is that I first heard it in Prishtina, Kosovo back in 2001. Thus, if they're playing it in that part of the world, I had a feeling that it would easily make its way around the world.

The greatness of Motorhead really has to do with how they were the key transition between classic rock and modern rock. If it weren't for Motorhead we would never have had metal, grunge, or punk. They're an icon because they were a musical catalyst.

And because Lemmy Kilmister has the world's best facial hair.  :D

This one can go two ways for me;

First a song that when you hear it everyone remembers and knows that gets into your head and gets you to sing along, that encourages hope and just never gets old for me.... unless you can't climb them anymore PA...

Linky song choice 1

Second a catchy type of song that has you think of it later singing it and that would be this little tune... besides who ever has enough

Linky song choice 2

how can anyone begrudge Motorhead for being Motorhead.

Straight ahead, no gimmick, 200db rock with an umlaut.  All you had to do was listen to
90 minutes of Rock 102 during the early 80's and then contrast that with the Ramones and Motorhead
to see what was going on there.

You'll probably enjoy this one too then, unfortunately it's on an earlier album of theirs.

Remember the days when everyone held up their lighters?  Now it's freaking cell phones  :rolleyes:   If I ever had a singer in any of my bands like this I might still be playing.

Really powerful singers are definitely hard to come across. The best live signing performance I've ever heard was Disturbed, man does that guy have some pipes on him.





Youtube videos just don't do it justice.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but does anyone miss 90's rock? Man, I'm starting to feel old. I miss the old Goo. Sure, I'm still a fan of them, but I wish they'd go back to "A Boy Named Goo" style of music. "Name" changed the group completely, and it paved the road to "Dizzy Up the Girl."

No one misses 90s rock unless they're a little too happy that day and need to take it down a notch.  Wow, what a depressing decade of music.  

I'm not old enough to remember it the first time around, but when it comes to rock, it's 70s FTW.  (Rock.  Not disco.)

I am a child of 90's rock, so for me there is nothing better. I swear to god there is no alt rock song from the 90s that I don't know, I think I've literally heard it all.

This is the first song I can remember hearing on the radio in the 90s. I was 8 (I know right?) and it was all down hill for me from there.  B-)



About 4 years ago I went on a search to rediscover a lot of 90s music that I remembered but had no idea who did it or what it was. It was quite an adventure. A couple gems including:

That was a nice little trip.  I'm a little older but still like a lot of that music.

The whole time I kept saying,"where's that Spacehog tune?"...and there it was.


EDIT:I found the comment from the One More Astronaut chat kinda funny,"Canada! Thats a dirty whore of the commonwealth isnt it? "   That's just funny.

I think I also heard this. Wiki confirms that they might be working on an album.

It was rumored for a while that the singer of Spacehog was going to be the new Velvet Revolver lead man, but that has been denied by VR.
