Motörhead have been kicking around for nearly 40 years now, churning out albums at a feverish pace since 1977. ‘Aftershock’ marks their 21st studio album and sounds exactly how fans expect it to sound: like Motörhead. Lemmy Kilmister and company have never strayed from the path of fast-paced rock ‘n’ roll with the ethos of ‘Everything Louder Than Everything Else.’ There is no such thing as a bad Motörhead album, just ones that are better. In the case of ‘Aftershock,’ it happens to be one of the band’s best.
In one week from today, Motorhead will release yet another rock 'n' roll album, their 21st to be exact. 'Aftershock' is shaping up to be another solid release by the iconic trio, so we look forward to the record's release by bringing you the classic clip for 'Killed by Death' as our Video of the Day!
Yippie! It might only be Tuesday, but this week is shaping up to be a pretty stellar one so far. It has been a long wait (three years) for Motörhead fans who are used to the band's routine of cranking out a new album at least every two years since 1991. With the release of 'Aftershock' still a week away, fans can rejoice and stream the full album courtesy of Yahoo! Music (listen below).
Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister has experienced a menagerie of health problems this year, but in a new and very comprehensive interview, Lemmy says that he's been "feeling better."

Is it wrong to be this excited over a tribute to one of pop music's biggest all-time artists? We don't think so, as some of metal and rock's most celebrated musicians have come together for one common purpose: paying tribute to the late Michael Jackson.
The lovely chaps of Motorhead recently reached out to a young fan after he was sent home for wearing a Motorhead England sweatshirt to school. Student Taylor Mathes was told by school officials that the hoodie, which bears the image of Motorhead mascot Snaggletooth, was unacceptable to wear because those in charge thought the band apparel was gang-related.
