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


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.

Editorial Reviews

Now remastered with added gut-wrenching bass, this debut album from Motörhead was cut in 1977 over a few speed-driven days at Escape Studio, and it shows. From the opening bass roar of the eponymous title track it is non-stop, relentless, churning, brain damaging, heavy rock 'n' roll. This is no ponderous heavy metal band fronted by some poodle-headed castrato - no, this is the real deal, down dirty and greasy and with its boots firmly rooted in rock 'n' roll.

Ian 'Lemmy' Kilmister had the right background to finally create Motörhead in 1975. Brought up on rock 'n' roll in the 50s he had been a member of the Shel Talmy-produced beat group the Rockin' Vicars, had a stint as roadie for Jimi Hendrix and was then in Roundhouse favorites Sam Gopal's Dream in 1969, before joining the ultimate psychedelic weirdos Hawkwind.

However Lemmy was too much for them and was deported after a slight altercation with customs over substances at the Canadian border. Hawkwind's loss was the world of rock 'n' roll's gain as the group, first named Bastard, renamed Motörhead, was founded. The blue touch paper was effectively ignited on a new and lethal approach to 'heavy music', culminating in the spawning of speed metal by the 'bastard children' of Lemmy's brain child.

After a disastrous beginning and a couple of false starts and personnel changes, Motörhead accidentally made an album for Chiswick Records. It started out as a farewell single and ended up as the beginning of a career that continues to this day.

Not only is this issue remastered from the original analogue mixes, bringing out the full frequency, in-your-face grunge, but there is a sleeve note from Chiswick Records supremo Ted Carroll telling the full hair-raising story of the roller coaster ride that was the making of Motörhead by Motörhead. We have added City Kids, the B-side to the Motörhead single and the four cuts that appeared on the later out-takes EP Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers released first in 1980.

As Lemmy once said... ''If Motörhead moved in next door to you, your lawn would probably die.'' You better believe it! --Roger Armstrong, Ace Records UK

Without this album,or this band,the evolution of "Heavy/Thrash Metal" would have been totally different or not at all.If this record had not been released and Motorhead had folded(which was a distinct possibility at the time)then it is conceivable that you would not now have the Metallicas and Slayers of this world. What has to be understood about this album is the musical environment it was released into.At the time there was NOTHING that sounded like this or was as heavy as this and it took the rock fraternity of the time and blew the top of its collective head off.This is also a damned good album and most of the songs here are classics,real rip-roarers that have stood the test of time.OK,by todays standards the recording quality is not quite up to scratch but don't let that bother you.Just turn your hi-fi up as loud as it can phisycaly go and enjoy an album which changed the course of rock forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Motorhead - self-titled (Roadrunner) November 29, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Originally released in 1977,a year or two after Lemmy exited Hawkwind.As most of you probably know,this is Motorhead's stunning debut record. So good to finally get it on CD.Simply outstanding British metal.Does it get any better than this?I could listen to this CD two or three times in a row,it's THAT good. Tracks that more than make this disc a true keeper are the opener, title cut-the band's namesake "Motorhead", "Lost Johnny", the slammin' "Iron Horse/Born To Lose", "Keep Us On The Road" and "City Kids" (also liked the Pink Fairie's version of this tune). Plus you get four(4)bonus cuts tagged on. Line-up: Lemmy-bass&vocals,Larry Wallis(former Fairies member)-guitar and Lucas Fox(R.I.P.)-drums. So highly recommended,it hurts.

5.0 out of 5 stars WHAT? NOT EVEN A PICTURE? September 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Sometimes I am amazed at the killer stuff that goes unnoticed in this place. MOTORHEAD the first album by MOTORHEAD with that KILLER opening song MOTORHEAD is one of the greatest things I have ever, EVER heard.

SO LOUD MAN, SO VERY VERY LOUD. SO very excellent.

I forgot that this band was responsible for that ACE of what?

This album is no less than, THE BALLS!

Somebody tell these guys to post a frieken' picture, people are gonna think this one dissapeared! OR WILL NEVER KNOW OF IT!

Something must be done. DO YOU KNOW THIS ONE? If not BUY IT.

I have mixed feelings about this release. On one hand, it's very well pressed 180g record, which looks and sounds fine. On the other hand, the description doesn't say that it's a digital transfer, not a remaster from the original tapes. So it sounds just like a CD would. I could have bought a CD for quarter the price. And the graphics could have been done better. I will probably stay away from Drastic Plastic releases.

5.0 out of 5 stars In the was almost the end... June 2, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The story is legend now, but this album - which was a re-recording of most of the tracks from On Parole (an album the band had previously recorded for United Artists Records which was, at the time, hanging in limbo) - almost didn't get made. Ted Carroll, the then-head of Chiswick Records, offered the boys time in the studio to record a single, which, times being what they were, would have been about their last shot. Instead, they peeled off 13 tracks in 2 days, which impressed Carroll enough to let them finish an entire album for release: the eponymous Motorhead. And the rest is history...

Truly an amazing album at the genesis of a legendary rock band. This is how music is supposed to sound. Most of the other 5-star reviewers have summed it up nicely. You can't go wrong here. After all, they are Motorhead, and they play rock 'n' roll.

5.0 out of 5 stars Motorhead is the loudest, rudest band from England! September 2, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The perfect meld of punk energy and hard rock is realized on Motorhead's self-titled album. This is music that demands to be heard.

This is Motorhead in the early years and is still the best. Lost Johnny, Iron Horse and The Watcher are classics.
