Motörhead = Motörhead

In an age when most of the great classic hard rock bands are slowing down and approaching their twilight years, Motörhead keeps charging ahead, playing the hardest and truest rock n’ roll ever recorded. Aftershock sounds like it was written in the back of a speeding getaway car, and the lyrics read like a dusty tome of long-forgotten outlaw poetry. “Dust and Glass” rips your guts out with all the grit and swagger of the blues, while “Going to Mexico” rockets down the road without a care. Listen close, because this is what real rock n’ roll sounds like. –Henry Glasheen
