NOW WE HAVE A REASON TO BE ASHAMED OF MOTORHEAD, TOO
Fuck my life.
I always thought that Lemmy would be one of those people who was cool forever. At least from a creative standpoint — it’s hard for me to endorse his love of Nazi paraphernalia. But I never thought that Motorhead would do embarrass themselves the way so many of their peers have.
I was wrong.
The band has a recorded a slowed-down version of their signature song, “Ace of Spades,” and while I have nothing against that concept in theory — in fact, the finished version sounds pretty alright, if not exactly terrific — the fact that it was recorded specifically for a beer commercial makes me wanna rip the mole right off of Lemmy’s face. Seriously, dude? You hard up to pay the rent this month or something?
And thus, Lemmy earns his spot on my “All My Heroes Have Failed Me” list. Good work, dude.
