Lemmy Kilmister in ‘Airheads’ – Musician Movie Cameos


“Who’d win in a wrestling match, Lemmy or God? Trick question; Lemmy is God.” In 1994, the comedy ‘Airheads’ paid tribute to Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister with that very line, which is still referenced today by rock and metal fans nearly two decades later.

Funnily enough, Lemmy himself appears in the film, but as just a regular fan in a massive crowd. In a scene where various audience members are shouting out pieces of their nerdy pasts, Lemmy declares, “I was editor of the school magazine!” The best part about this cameo is that it’s an inside joke for Motorhead fans to enjoy, and to those unfamiliar with the band, there was no clue that you were, in fact, watching God himself act.
