Motorhead is an English rock band that was formed in the yester years of 1975. The main man behind the formation of the band was singer, songwriter and bassist Ian Fraser Kilmister who had already began performing as a solo artist. Otherwise known by his stage name Lemmy, Ian has remained the only consistent member of the band as it has had a sting of band members joining and quitting. Those that quit were replaced by new members but Lemmy was the only member that has held the band together in a determined manner. The band has been commonly compared to the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, which was a great player in re-energizing heavy metal music in the early 1980’s and late 1970’s. Motorhead operated as a power trio that had amazing stints of success with most of their frequently released singles topping the UK top forty chart.
They released a number of albums that firmly cemented their foundation and reputation among the many rock fans that constantly nodded to their tunes. Their particular album titled “No Sleep ‘til Hammersmith” was the one that really made a great name for the band. Their other albums included Bomber, Overkill, Ace of spades among others. The band is considered to be playing a heavy metal kind of music whereby they fuse this genre with punk rock. This dynamism saw them pioneer thrash metal and speed metal genres of rock music. Over these years, their musical approach has remained the same as they’ve preferred to play what they enjoy and do best. The band has a distinctive fang faced logo, which you will commonly find on a number of vintage Motorhead tour t shirts for women and men and has almost become a trademark associated with the band.
