You Can Now Play as Lemmy in GTA V
Since his untimely passing last month, Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister has been honored in many ways–the memorial that swallowed the Sunset Strip, the Finnish milk commercial, the scientific element, the renaming of his favorite drink. But this tribute might take the cake.
The makers of Grand Theft Auto V have now made a Lemmy mod, so that you can play the game as the Great Man Himself. As though the world of GTA isn’t Lemmy-ed out enough as is, the mod also includes quick controls that allow the character to smoke, drink, put on a Motörhead shirt, play guitar, and, of course, spawn a legion of hookers that follow him around.
I’m not a big video game guy, but I think this is awesome. Every metalhead has at some point wished they were as insane and awesome as Lemmy; now, you can play that fantasy out, and have the dude throw some Molotov cocktails at cops in the meantime.
Watch the preview video below to learn what the Lemmy mod is capable of. We’ll update you when the first angry parent sues Rockstar Games because they found their kid drinking Jack Daniels, snorting a line off of some boobs, and generally having the time of his life.
