"Get Back In Line" from the new album The World Is Yours

Biography

Motörhead have never JUST been the best rock'n'roll band in the world. They've never JUST been the loudest. Or the hardest. Or the toughest. Or the bad-ass-est. No...Motörhead are also a lifestyle.

Motörhead are a mindset, a belief, a way to live your life, a way to both survive and beat a society that sometimes seems intent on grinding you down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Hard Rock Album Ever June 17, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album is unbelievablely good, and if you live outside of Germany, Amazon is the only way you're going to get it.
The best Motorhead album, and probably the best hard rock album I've ever heard. I've had it for a year and I still listen to it all the time.
If you've been to the shows (or have the live album), you've heard some killer songs (On Your Feet or On Your Knees, Burner, Born to Raise Hell, Lost in the Ozone) that you didn't know before. This is where they're hiding, and they're surrounded by some of the best Motorhead songs.
On Your Feet... - uptempo and killer.
Burner - 2:30 of double kick drums and super fast guitar work. Pure energy.
Death or Glory - Just an awesome song. Lyrics are genius, running down major conflicts during all human history.
I am the Sword - Very cool. Makes you want to bust heads.
Born to Raise Hell - THE party anthem. Makes you want to move.
Don't Let Daddy Kiss Me - A little disturbing, but a very good semi-acoustic song.
Bad Woman - Metal-blues at its finest. If there's a Motorhead song to dance to, this is it. Awesome swing feel to it.
Liar - Crushing. Anger given form.
Lost in the Ozone - Another semi-acoustic ballad. 2 in one album! It's powerful. Lemmy may not be the greatest singer, but he shines on this song.
I'm the Man - Very odd song. The lyrics make no sense, but the music is great.
We Bring the Shake - Slightly low key, great for groovin' background music (if you can imagine).
Devils - Can't really describe this song. But it's great rock n' roll and a long, multi-layered, fade out of the chorus at the end is the perfect finisher to the album.
Jumpin' Jack Flash [Bonus] - The classic redone. I would've liked to see more changes to the original [make it faster, heavier], but it's good a good song redone with straight distortion.
Overall, this album rocks my world. A testament to Motorhead's greatness, and also to how underappreciated they are.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Motorhead, fools! June 22, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is the best Motorhead album ever, and that's saying something, because Motorhead has released a lot of great albums. My favorite songs are "Liar," "Devils," and "I am the Sword." The only thing that could have made this album any better is if Bastards contained the version of "Born to Raise Hell" from the Airheads soundtrack (f/ Ice-T & Whitfield Crane of Ugly Kid Joe). This is also my personal favorite Motorhead album cover, even though it is plain old black & white, and kind of dark. You just know when you see the cover art that this album is going to kick your ass. So if you don't have it, and you are any sort of metal fan at all, do yourself a favor and pick it up.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest Mötorhead Albums June 25, 2005
Format:Audio CD
After Phil and Eddie left the band I wasn't interested of Mötorhead releases, maybe only Orgasmatron is one of their best efforts with different band members, but lately I bought their newest album INFERNO and the sound in the CD is great, so the interest in Mötorhead raise again and I bought BASTARDS and it was a great surprise.

The complete album is a classic, with heavy riffs, great drums and obviously the grrr Lemmy's voice and bass riffs.

This CD is a Mötorhead classic, you can hear it again and again and again, and it is fantastic.

If you are looking for a great heavy metal album (like seasons in the abyss, master of puppets,etc) buy this one and INFERNO too, you won't regret.

5.0 out of 5 stars Motorhead - 'Bastards' (Steamhammer) July 30, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Superb 1993 Motorhead release. I must've missed this one, because I recognized so few of these tunes. One P-O-W-E-R-H-O-U-S-E of of an album. A lesser known British metal classic. Tracks that MORE than make this CD a true keeper are "On Your Feet Or On Your Knees", "Death & Glory", their possible anthem (?) "Born To Raise Hell", the semi-acoustic tearjerker "Don't Let Daddy Kiss Me", "We Bring The Shake" and their decent cover of the Stone's "Jumpin' Jack Flash". Long live Lemmy and his metal henchmen!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Motorhead's absolute best. September 7, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I'd call this one of the top 5 best Motorhead albums ever. Most songs are fast and hard (Death or Glory, Burner, Liar) or super-catchy (Born to Raise Hell, On Your Feet Or On Your Knees) or even somewhat melodic, such as Devils. A must-have for any motorhead / metal fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enter Motorhead July 9, 2006
By Souls
Format:Audio CD
Enter Motorhead, 1993. When 1992's MARCH OR DIE album didn't hit it off as well as the band hoped it would, Lemmy and the gang went back to doing what they did and still do best: churning out scorching riffs at breakneck speeds.

BASTARDS is arguably Motorhead's best album, bar none, which is saying something, considering that Motorhead's discography puts bands' like Slayer and Maiden to shame. The drumming's top-notch (check out Burner, and then piece your eardrums back together), the lyrics are catchy, thoughtful, and honest, and the guitar work on BASTARDS is downright awesome. Check it:

On Your Feet Or On Your Knees: Starts out with a killer riff and doesn't let up. Catchy as hell.

Burner: Damn. Red Bull in song form; energy.

Death or Glory: A good song with a better chorus.

I Am The Sword: Love it. One of my favorites.

Born to Raise Hell: In spite of its popularity, this is one of my least favorite songs on the album. It's still very good, however.

Don't Let Daddy Kiss Me: This song is a bit of a deviation from the traditional Motorhead formula. It's acoustic, and the lyrics are haunting, to say the least.

Bad Woman: Groove to it, baby.

Liar: An adrenaline-rush of anger. Another one of the album's best.

Lost in the Ozone: A nice song for when you're just relaxing. Some parts are acoustic and some are electric, which Lemmy and Co. mix very nicely.

I'm the Man: Possibly my favorite song on the album. Man, I love these riffs. This song gave me goosebumps the first time I heard it, which is definitely a good thing.

We Bring the Shake: Less intense that most Motorhead material, but there's nothing wrong with that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff
This is certainly a good record, as are all on this list. However, this list has one serious flaw--No "Iron Fist"? C'mon, you gotta be joking.
