When Lemmy was kicked out of Hawkwind in 1975, he said his new group would be "the dirtiest band in the world. If we moved in next door, your lawn would die." Twenty-five years and several line-up changes later, Motörhead are still ugly as sin and louder than hell. WE ARE MOTÖRHEAD doesn't break any new ground for the band, but finds their power undiminished. The big surprise here is their raucous cover of the Sex Pistols classic "God Save the Queen." Motörhead are always categorized as a heavy metal band, but Lemmy has deep roots in the UK punk scene -- early on, Motörhead often split live bills with the Damned, a band that Lemmy played in for a short period of time, and in 1976 Lemmy lived in a communal squat with Sid Vicious before he was a Sex Pistol. The rest of WE ARE MOTÖRHEAD flaunts the band's now classic, noisy sound. Short, hard, and fast songs come lunging out of the speakers, and if their sound doesn't yank your collar, the band's greasy attitude will. On the title track, the band boast "We are Motörhead, born to kick your ass." Here's to another 25 years of killing grass.
