No. 21: Motorhead, ‘Motorhead’ – Best Debut Metal Albums

Motorhead, 'Motorhead'

What a sad world this would be if Motorhead did not exist. In fact, that almost happened, but Ted Carroll of Chiswick Records signed the band shortly after attending what was supposed to be Motorhead’s final show in 1977.

Motorhead’s self-titled debut brought us the band’s powerful title track, ‘Keep Us on the Road,’ ‘The Watcher’ and many others. The album stabilized the shaky band and readied them for an iconic career, and In true Motorhead fashion, advertisements for the band’s debut read, “Achtung! This Band Takes No Prisoners.”
