Greetings Fellow Motorheadbangers!!


As many of you already know, a true legendc in the halls of music passed away a week ago, Joey Ramone. Many of you realize that Joey and the Ramones where not only friends of Motorhead, but also kindred spirits in music. Joey, like Lemmy, flaunted the conventions of front men and decided to do whatever he wanted and do the music that he truly loved.

For me, the Ramones represent a wonderful innocence of the coming flood of music that MUST pay direct homage to them. A band that was truly a pivot point in the history of music and was responsible for so many artists and styles we enjoy today. The Ramones were the first punk band that I loved. They took the catchy hooks of 60s rock and dolled it out in 2 minute portions. And their lyrics still make me laugh to this day! On the day he died, I wandered down to one of LA's coolest clubs and caught a live act by one of todays most under-rated bands, The Supersuckers. At one point, the lead singer, Eddie, said that his favorite bands of all time included "Motorhead and the Ramones". It was a killer show and a great way to spend one of the blackest nights ever.

Joey, you will be missed and all I can say is... thank you for the music.


Just before the biys headed to Europe to prepare for the dates there, they managed to get into the studio and record some new demos with Bob Kulick twiddling the knobs. Phil dropped me a note to say that he managed "16 full guitar tracks and 7 solos in 7 hours." By all reports, the guys will continue in their tradition of excellence... like we would expect anything else!


Non-Motorhead Items

Over the past year, I have managed to lay my hands on a few interesting items that I thought might interest fans of Motorhead. I have created a new section of the "Motorheadshop" that features items from the likes of Judas Priest, the Scorpions and more! Remember, all of the sales from these items go to support the website. Take a moment to have a look.

As far as Motorhead items go, we now have a brand new, never before available belt buckle for you! It is a silver/pewter buckle that features a 3D relief of the famous "Motorhead England" image of Snaggletooth. These are $25 plus shipping and handling.

Also available, the newest double CD greatest hits release from Motorhead in a limited edition, signed series of 50 pieces. Phil, Mikkey and Lemmy have all personally signed them and you are the first to have a go at them. They are $49 plus shipping and handling.

I have some cool girlie shirts in stock that are not on the website yet. These are all one-size-fits-all and are black with the Motorhead logo in red on the front. They are $25 plus appropriate shipping & handling (see any shirt in the Motorheadshop on the website for postage costs). Check all the stuff out at the Motorheadshop!

In OS #122, Tinka wrote that Lemmy is not a God. If she has ever seen the movie Airheads, she'd realize that Lemmy is, in fact, viewed by many as a God. True, not in the actual immortal sense of the word, but in the sense that his music and his legend will live on for many generations after we've all met the reaper. Lemmy is about as close to a God as any mortal man can ever aspire to be. And seeing as I'm not particularly religious, I'll choose his "sermons" any day of the week. Take care. Fond regards to all Motorheadbangers worldwide.

Why is rock 'n' roll the only job you can have where people get pissed off if you get a raise?!? If Motorhead does better for doing a wrestling song...what business is it of yours? I think it's great. It just gets thier name out to a whole sh*tload of people who would otherwise have never had a CHANCE to hear them...why is that bad? As for who's a poser and who isn't...who gives a rat's ass? Elitist snobs! You types just want to keep things "underground"...how is it selling out if it's the same stuff they've always done?! Y'all sound like a bunch of whiney emo kids to me...

Subject: o.s. overnight sensation issue #122

SodomVomit's little contribution to the Motorhead/WWF topic made interesting reading. I never realised I was submerging myself in popular culture by watching WWF, or that this made me undeserving of listening to whatever music I choose to.

Perhaps Sodom would care to define every action I need to take in my life to be deserving of listening to Motorhead? Or which groups I should be banned from liking as well? What length should my hair be? Do I have the right tattoos?

Sodom, who the hell do you think you are? Trying to tell people what they should watch and listen to is exactly the opposite of what rock is about. You want to control people, try listening to some 'Girl Power' or mind-numbing rave crap.

I'll live how I want, wear what I want, watch what I want and listen to what I want. I'll build the bike I want, get the tattoos I want, drink what I want and above all, I will let other people have the same choice.

If only.......


More exposure=more fans. Don't assume that no wrestling fan "deserves" to listen to motorhead. After all we could all assume you're too stupid to work the "Caps Lock" key on your computer.......... and anyway there's no such thing as "right fans" and "wrong fans". It's the bands decision whether to "sell out" or not and I don't think they will, somehow.


I don't care- if they like motorhead we have something in common. Do I have to ONLY listen to motorhead? If I like Strauss or Wagner does that make me a "fag" too?


Well well, a racist homophobe. I bet Motorhead are SO glad of your loyal support........


Sorry I am not worthy of your immense intelligence, "sodomvomit". Get a life.

Here are the lyrics for 'Motorhead': ( the version from the Motorhead album/CD)

Sunrise wrong side of another day
Sky-high and six thousand miles away
Don't know how long I've been awake
Wound up in an amazing state
Can't get enough,
and you know it's the righteous stuff
Goes up like prices at Christmas
Remember me, now
Motorhead, alright

Brained out total amnesia
Get some mental anesthesia
Don't move, I'll shut the door and kill the lights
I guess I'll see you all on the ice
All good clean fun, have another stick of gum
Man you look better already,
Remember me now
Motorhead, alright

Fourth day, five day marathon
We're moving like a parallelogram
Don't move, I'll shut the door and kill the lights
I guess I'll see you all on the ice
I should be tired, and all I am is wired
I ain't felt this good for an hour
Motorhead, remember me now

Dear All

Life, it just doesn't get any more amusing. 'Sodom Vomit' - what a name, what a guy ! We had the complete range of prejudice here, - 'JEWTALLICA' you wrote, so clearly a bit of anti Semitic racism. In fact I am suprised your post wasn't spotted and barred by Ace for it. As for all the homophobic ranting - 'Me thinks he doth protest too much' All that we needed was a picture of you in a KKK suit slapping your girlfriend and the story would be complete.

Let's be honest shall we ? you are about 16, you have problems relating to other people, your grades are poor and you feel alienated by society, as a result of such, you spend many hours with hustler in the privacy of your bathroom which gives you this shortsightedness.

and then our other accomplished thinker SLYR2133: What a genius, what insight ! of course Motorhead don't need to win over a new fan base.......because (you think) enough people still like them to keep Lemmy in JD. With that degree of business insight I am suprised you haven't been snapped up by a management consultancy somewhere.

The reason that they need to grow is simple, you grow to survive, new recruits are needed as old ones fade away. And lets not think that Lemmy and the boys are on mega bucks, they aren't ! the album sales are the ones that count and MH albums don't tend to chart very high if you catch my drift.

New fans means financial freedom for the band to write and record what they want, which is what we all want. Apart from SLYR2133 who doesn't want any new people along to the gigs in case they stop him from being at the front smoking his oxo cube spliff that the big hard lad in class sold him.

Poor old SLYR2133 he thinks that he saved motorhead for the world and now they don't wanna play with his dolly any more, being a band with a cult following pays for nothing, all it does is allow people like you and 'Sodom Vomit' feel slightly superior to others, when you have no good reason to do so !

anyway, I mustn't ramble or people might think I am Mike McIntyre.
Is anyone going to Rock City ?

Best wishes

**Ace: I guess I could have edited it... but then we all would have been deprived of that wity retort! :-) Once and for all, Ian puts to rest that a man can be intelligent AND listen to Motorhead! WELL DONE!

The last time I heard about Philthy is that he recorded a few tracks with The Deviants. They were issued on two CDs:

"The Deviants And The Pink Fairies. HAMS Vol.2 - unreleased" (cat. # UHCH 002).
Philthy is drumming on the Fairyhead track called 'Nevah Surrender'. and

"Hogwatch - HAMS Vol 3" (cat. #UHCH 003) Philthy recorded drums for the following tracks:
Fairyhead: 'Alienza',
Deviants: 'See That My Grave Is Kept Clean',
Fairyhead: 'Lennon',
Fairyhead: 'Mutancy',
Deviants: 'Junta'.

Hi Fellow MHB,

first some facts, Motorhead didn't write "the game", second they didn't ask to perform it, they were asked (presumebly by HHH, but more probably by some high up person in the WWF - not one of their actors!) basically the song is slow, shallow and boring. WWF wanted to have motorhead, not the other way around. Motorhead have always survived on their own, without media surport of any kind. If they accepted to perform this song, it's probably because it couldn't do them any harm, not because they wanted more fans, why not.... It's probably just a laugh for them. the song is well performed, Lemmy made sure all the people watching WWF knew who they were "we are Motorhead and we are going to kick your arse" at the beginning and "we are Motorhead, and it's time to play the game" at the end. whether wrestling is fun to watch or not as nothing to do with it.

Tromeo and Juliet was on channel 4 saturday night (monday morning more like it!) at 2 am, finishing after 4am. thanks censorshit! I saw a man smash his head open on the street last week, he didn't have a 18 certificate suspended in front of him. neither do flashes, parents, if u stop your kids watching certain film because of sex and violence, stop 'em going outside too. anyway i was surprised, it's really good, not obscene, not a porno, not stupidly violent, not naff, if you haven't seen it, get it!

thats enough for now, cyas.
ps: channel 4 (uk) is doing a vote for best music moment on tv... has motorhead got something worthy of that??? if so go to channel 4 web site... www.playuk.tv are still doing their vote for best song of all time, u know what to do!

Subject: os: wrestling discussion...

I know this is getting kinda old, but I don't post often so here we go: I personally think wrestling is ridiciulous, but the main thing is that Motrhead thought it was a good idea to do it, and it's their decision to make. I saw some post stating that Lemmy isn't exactly poor, but what I've understood he isn't exactly rich either. And he is a man who should be extremely stinking rich, he deserves it for all the years of work!! So it's a pretty weak argument that people shouldn't get exposed to Motrhead 'cause they would get in the way of "die hard" fans. The early records wasn't exactly the best deals, rip off record companies has done their part so that the band hasn't been getting the cash they were entitled to, which is the case for far too many great bands! Motrhead "sell-out", yeah right...

Subject: os: " opinion"

I generally sit back, relax and enjoy reading the most recent issue of Overnight Sensation. I don't usually have much to say, I read what is written, privately agree or disagree and that is about it. Now and then I feel I need to say something and I do. Well, I guess I need to say something.

I am more than a little surprised by the number of whiners that are currently posting to the OS newsletter. Everyone has a right to express his/her opinion, this is a basic human right. However, I become concerned when a person can't express an opinion without sounding any more grown up than my 4 year old son when he doesn't get what he wants. There is a vast difference between being passionate about your opinions and being a childish whiner.

An opinion when expressed as an opinion is perfectly acceptable, however, when an opinion is expressed as though it were irrefutable fact it moves from the realm of possibly being interesting to being overtly aggravating.

One such "opinion" stated that Motorhead did not need any more fans, while this may or may not be the case, I would think that the band themselves would be best suited to make that call, rather than one fan who it would appear is afraid of change. Change is of course inevitable (which is a fact not an opinion).

Any number of persons posting "opinions" in regard to the best song, the best drummer, the best guitarist etc. make this newsletter interesting.
Fans at odds with one another's opinions make the newsletter flavorful when presented tactfully and intelligently.

However, actually having to spend my time reading through a letter which basically says "you dumb, you think you are smart but u are not smart I am much more smarter than you and my views are more better than yours" tends to irritate me. If everyone you know is either an asshole or a loser, maybe you should have a good long look in the mirror and really think about what you are seeing.

Maybe I am right, maybe I am wrong, take it as you will.

For the record - My favorite song is "Dead men tell no tales" followed closely by "Don't need Religion"

1. for the guy looking for the lyrics for 'motorhead' try
2. this is about the whole wrestling thing. i am a big fan of wrestling and of metal. i not a pop fan and as far as limp bizkit goes fred durst can go fuck himself. i am also a very big fan of motorhead. lemmy is a fucking genius. i cannot wait for white line fever to come out. i personally do not care for triple h's song. i think that motorhead has made a lot of other good songs and we should be talking about them and get off this whole wrestling thing. i do agree that there are a bunch of people that will knot give a shit about motorhead after the song is gone in a few months but i will not be one of them. i will like motorhead forever.
3. i was flipping through channels and happened to pass by mtv (fuck mtv) and i saw some rapper, i think it was missy elliot or some thing and she was wearing a motorhead t-shirt w/ Snaggletooth on it. just thought you might like to know. -your 'dumbass' metal/wrestling fan.

Hello friends + neighbours,

ACE,thanks for your kind words, I am touched, really. I always had the curiosity to know where Motorhead have trod the scenes. A curiosity that gradually is risen during the several thousand miles that I have covered in Europe in order to catch up and to follow the group toward who I nourish a boundless admiration; miles covered with airplanes, ships, trains, buses, cars, motorcycles, feet... Just to think about it makes me to smile!

Things happened when two winters ago I spent eight days ill at home. That was the time I needed! Those days I done most of the work but I have taken two months more of spare time to finish the job. I think Lemmy got on stage about 1800 times so far.

My friends know I have a large quantity of Motorhead stuff at home but I can't forget all the people (a lot of you) who helped me in the fulfillment of this list, without you I wouldn't done the work. Here I write down the names of few of them: Artyom Golew, Dan the Tarper, Dave Punklett, Damiano Giovanelli, Manuel Frosini, Terry Langkammer, Thierry Denervaud and all the people who wrote me from North/Southamerica, Europe and Japan, I forgot your names, sorry!

As for Ace, thanks for your concern, it was very good to meet you in London. When you'll come to my country I will buy you a pizza, a real one, not like the ones on sale in London, those were horrible in taste, ha! ha! ha!

I salute the Motorhead fans everywhere, I might see you somewhere. Live forever!

Subject: os: tour dates and other assorted shit

I was looking at the section on the website that lists all the Motorhead shows of the past. I saw a few things that need to be added to it. First of all, there is no mention of the Ozzy/Motorhead show at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, Illinois on May 24th ( 24 May) 1981. The show on August 5th ( 5 August) 1983 in Chicago was at the Cabaret Metro. That's the first time that I ever met Lemmy. He came out after the show and signed some autographs and shit. I got some flyer signed or something, I think, something that's been lost to the ravages of time anyways. Lemmy told me that night that the name for the Motorhead symbol ( Motorcycle Irene) did indeed come from the song of the same name on that Moby Grape album " Wow". I guess that Lemmy was a big fan of Moby Grape. The Halloween 1986 show was at the Aragon Ballroom. That's the one where I got to interview Lemmy afterwards. The show for November 4th ( 4 November) 1986 was in Aurora, Illinois at a place called Malo's. That's all that I could find on the lists. Secondly, I heard "The Game" again before the Chicago Blackhawks/Toronto Maple Leafs game on April 6th ( 6 April). I won't hear it again anytime soon, as the hockey season is over around here. The two appearances that the song made are more than enough to qualify for getting the band members names on that statue across the street. I am going to write Old Man Wirtz and tell him that he should do that, and if he come sout of his drunken stupor long enough, maybe we shall see Motorhead get more of the accolades that they deserve.
Thirdly, I see that the giutar technician for Lizzy Borden, Ulrik Zander, got shot after a show recently by an unknown assailant. He survived the shooting, and is in the hospital recovering. I guess that they had some half-naked women bring him a bunch of Motorhead CDs to help speed his recovery. That would definetly be a help no matter what ailed you. Lastly, what was ther name of the song that Lemmy sold to Ozzy for 100 dollars? I forgot which one it was.

Subject: os: this wrestling thing.

Hi everyone,I have been a Motorhead fan since 1979 and love this band to DEATH.
Through all the line up changes,I have stayed with this band because they have never "SOLD OUT" to sell more albums and reach a bigger audience by playing what the public want to hear,rather than what MOTORHEAD want US to hear. With regard to the on-going debate about the W.W.F.Triple H Theme music,WHO gives a FUCK, I certainly don't,to me the more people who Motorhead can reach with their music,the better. I have two young nephews who are both into wrestling,who told me last week-end , that Motorhead were on the Wrestling and did I have any Motorhead albums that they could listen to? I showed them my choice of 27 Motorhead cd's and told them to take their pick!!!!!!! Suffice to say that they are now coming to see the band with me in May. What could possibly be wrong with that.They will then tell their friends what a fuckin' awesome time they had ,so maybe next time their friends will go and the gospel according to Motorhead will spread even further.Surely this can't be a bad thing for the band,more ticket sales,more album sales and more people to reach with their music.Thus resulting in more popularity for our favourite trio.!!!!!!!! The more youngsters that are made aware of what PROPER music and attitude is all about, the better ,and as far as I am concerned, the more success and money that we can point in Lemmy's & co's direction the better too,fuck knows Lemmy is well overdue the recognition he so justly deserves. This all reminds me of a notorious band called the Sex Pistols,who had a certain bass player who couldn't play a single note,who went to one Mr I Kilminster for advice on what he should do,but ahhhh tht's another story isn't it ? Look at the Pistols now,Legendary,which is what Motorhead deserve to be .
Bury this wrestling and killed by death nonsense and just be proud that you are able to be part of what motorhead are all about and enjoy it.

Okay now, hold on tight boys and ghouls, because were gonna take a little journey to a place i like to call imagination land.
Sit back and relax now while we peer into the future of a band named Motorhead and its lead singer Lemmy Kilmeister. It is ten years from now in the year 2011, ten long years since Lemmy and Motorhead sold there immortal souls to Vincent K. McMahon and that evil American corporate juggernaut the WWF. Ten years previuos to this date our band Motorhead had been a well respected and loved group, that is until that fateful day when our boys turned their backs on all of we the "true fans ", and did the unthinkable, recorded an entry theme for a proffesional wrestler ( gasp accordingly ). This one act, this one digression, cast into effect the downfall of what was perhaps the greatest heavy metal band the world has ever known. From that day forward it was one travesty of good taste after another, first it was HHH's song, then came the Limp bizkit/Motorhead buddies album ( which as we all know was the highest selling album of 2003 ),then there was the reality based T.V. show " We are Motorhead " in which the fellas in the band were taped in their homes 24 hours a day becoming the highest rated television program since the final episode of " M*A*S*H* ". And then there was ... wait, what's this? You say this all sounds far to ridiculuos to ever possibly be true? Yeah, well you'd probably be right then jerky, you wanna know why you'd be right? Simple. Motorhead is Motorhead. Lemmy is Lemmy. No apologies, no questiions. Motorhead is, was, and always will be exactly who and what they are, one of, if not the best damn bands in the world. Motorhead will continue to do exactly what they have always done they way they've always done it, and thats kick ass worldwide by their rules, not yours, not mine, theirs. I'm sorry to inform all of you " True fan "/best song/lead giturast voting/to intelligent for wrestling/Lemmy sold out/elitist fuckwits ( sodomvomit comes painfully to mind ),that Lemmy and the guys will continue kicking ass on their terms no matter what your jackass opinion may be.
Everything else under the sun be damned, we are here because of our mutual love and respect of Motorhead, all the songs, all the albums, all the band members past, present, and future ( hopefully a long one at that ). So if you don't like wrestling, don't watch it ( damn, that was simple wasn't it ), but, if you don't like Motorhead any longer no matter the reason(s), please do all of us " poser fans " a favor and go play in traffic or some shit, 'cause your taking up precious breathing space the rest of us could be using.

No doubt Lemmy will be saddened to hear of the death of Joey Ramone recently :-(

Reckon they should honour his memory by adding RAMONES to the set list of the current tour....

Subject: os: joey ramone r.i.p.


just a quick message, I heard Joey Ramone died of cancer yesterday, he was 49.


here's the article from NME.com:

Joey Ramone, lead singer of punk heroes the Ramones has died at the age of 49 in a New York hospital.
The frontman had been suffering from lymphatic cancer - he did not respond to treatments given to him.

Born Jeffery Hyman in 1951 in the deprived Queens distict of New York he adopted the surname Ramone along with his bandmates Johnny, Tommy and Dee Dee when the band formed in 1974.

Taking their inspiration from a mixture of the Stooges and bubblegum pop the Ramones personified cartoon punk and in turn inspired a host of no nonsense punk bands including the Sex Pistols, The Clash, Blink 182 and The Offspring.

One listen to songs like 'Blitzkrieg Bop' and 'Sheena Is A Punk Rocker' was enough to convince anyone with a scintilla of rock 'n' roll in them that four chords, shades and a leather jacket was more than enough to create an unforgettable icon.

I have been trying to book tickets for Motorhead at the forum, Ticket Master are showing that the 23rd is sold out and the gig on the 25th is Motorhead & guests. Do you have any clues as to who the "guests" are?

The website is great by the way, keep up the good work!

Tickets are 15 + handling. I got mine from TicketWeb, who I've found to be pretty good so far:


N.B.: there are now 2 shows in the same week. :)

The nearest Tube station to the Forum is Kentish town, on the Northern Line. There's a nice Tube map here:


(Kentish Town is in square B5.)

Directions from the Tube station are here:


...though I usually just follow the mass of Motrhead shirts.

I think that's all correct. Don't know about hotels, though: I live 40 minutes away by train (on a good day). :)

The error is possible, the list is for everyone who wants to make either additions or corrections, even for you James. Not having sources before 1978 I copied the first three years from Alan Burridge's "Collectors Guide to Motorhead" (as I said in my letter last year) and had the chance to improve them as much as possible with the help of some of you. Someone in this list has seen Lemmy for the first time in 1972... Someone saw Mh the first time in 1976... Someone has almost every concert with Robbo on tape... Some of you think I have a very big collection, this is not true. The truth is that I've been helped a lot, I got so many e-mails, thanks, the lis is yours.

P.S. Ace in '98 and '99 didn't post all the dates that Motorhead actually played!

Subject: os: opinions are my business.....and business is good

Im getting really sick of reading messages about which song is the best. Which guitarist is the best. Which drummer is the best. The point is, its still just 1 band.

Surely the newsletter would be pretty dull if people didn't voice their opinions on such matters? Personally I think Wurzel was the best guitarist by a distance and I would be interested to know if anyone agrees. I also think that the We are Motorhead album was one of the weakest (not a patch on Bastards or Overnight Sensation), but I know I'm probably in a minority. I'll tell you what though, Slow Dance is the biggest pile of shit they've ever recorded.

2 more questions:
1 - Does anyone else think that Motorhead should go back to being a 4 piece?
2 - Why does Lemmy insist on dressing up in those ridiculous German WW2 outfits? I know he's not a nazi or anything (that's obvious from his music and interviews) but it's no wonder people level that accusation at him from time to time if he insists on donning such regalia.

Thanks for the tribute to Joey Ramone... The Ramones and Motorhead are the big two....

I first saw the Ramones in 1979 in Toronto and they changed my life. I saw Motorhead a year later and there you go...

2001 and I still listen to both of them... certain bands change your life.
Thanks Joey and and CJ and Marky and Johnny and Tommy and all the rest.

Ace: I enjoy viewing your Motorhead site regularly, great stuff on here. I am going over to Ireland to see Motorhead next month for at least one, maybe both dates. I live in the south and I understand that Lemmy is a big fan of bourbon and civil war (the war of northern aggression as its called in the Conferation) items. I thought that I would bring a sample of each over with me and present them to him. I'm not familiar with Motorhead's policy on meeting with fans, and I thought that you would be the person to ask. Although I have never seen Motorhead live, growing up in Tennessee was not a place they played often, I do have most of there CDs including the hard to find Bastards and Lemmy's Birthday Party. They cancelled on me this year in Philadelphia, so any help or advise on this matter would be appreciated.

**Ace: All I can tell you is that they are not hard to find...
