Motorhead Cage Match – Robots Vs. LEGO
Yes, the Cage Match is usually reserved for brand new hard rock tracks vying for attention or classic cuts just adding to their legacy, but every once in a while, we here at Loudwire see a matchup that is just too good to pass up. As such, this Cage Match is a battle featuring two unique takes on a Motorhead classic.
In one corner, we give you Compressorhead -- a truly metal band who have great precision when it comes to rocking Motorhead's classic 'Ace of Spades.' You would hope that would be the case since they are robots designed to play metal at its finest. Robot drummer Stickboy has the headbanging down, but some points may have to be subtracted for the skinbeater as he's pulling off what Mikkey Dee normally does but using several more appendages to do it. The robot rendition of Motorhead also has captured some stage moves, with a rock crouch noticeable during the performance, but the movement is still. … well … robotic.
In the other corner, we've got LEGO Motorhead, who have a little more energy than Compressorhead, but wait …. what's this? It appears that LEGO Motorhead's instruments are not plugged in. Yes, there's plenty of energy and they do rock, but do we have another Chili Peppers Super Bowl situation going on here? Never mind, LEGO Axl Rose has noted that they've been implanted with Google Ass technology and are able to rock while unplugged. The fact that the LEGO Lemmy and company do actually have facial expressions means there may be more of a connection with the human audience than the robots have.
So here we have the ultimate Cage Match matchup -- Robot Motorhead vs. LEGO Motorhead. Watch both videos below and vote for which Motorhead tribute is "aces" in your book.
(This Cage Match will run until Thursday, Feb. 20, at 2PM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
