The release of a new album is always a time of excitement for a band's fans. In Motorhead's case, that's especially true with their latest effort 'Aftershock,' because of Lemmy Kilmister's health issues. Fans are happy not just because the album's release is imminent (Oct. 22), but also because the legendary frontman is still ticking after taking a licking this year.

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.
Break out the poker chips and a bottle of whiskey because Motörhead have revealed the full details on their 21st studio album, 'Aftershock.' After 38 years of unrelenting outlaw attitude and their trademark take on blues and speed fueled rock, the band haven't let up one bit. With songs like 'Silence When You Speak to Me' and 'Keep Your Powder Dry,' 'Aftershock' promises to deliver the Motörhead mark of quality we've been given for nearly four decades.
Even though Motorhead had to cancel their summer European concert dates due to frontman Lemmy Kilmister's health issues, the band is still on track to release their latest album 'Aftershock' this fall and have unveiled the track listing (see below). The band's 21st studio album was produced by Cameron Webb (Pennywise).
