In celebration of MOTÖRHEAD’s cannonating new slab Aftershock, BraveWords has decided to serve up a primer and reminder as to the 20 most shocking events in the life of Lem and Co! Conflate them, debate them... we’re presenting them in countdown form, until the day of quake, namely the record’s release date, October 22nd. So read on and soak in all the gruesome glory and historical heavy metal!
#9 - Motörhead goes commercial. 1992's March Or Die features polite production, three different drummers, and novelty tracks such as a cover of TED NUGENT's ‘Cat Scratch Fever’ and a ballad with SLASH and OZZY called ‘I Ain’t No Nice Guy’. Fans are, well, shocked. Plus there’s the crappy ‘Hellraiser’, which also pulled double-duty on Ozzy’s album too.
