“Ace Of Spades”—the title track of MOTÖRHEAD’s 1980 iconic, game changing album—isn’t just one of the greatest hard rock songs ever written, it has truly become a lifestyle anthem for several generations of rockers, metalheads, punks, bikers, athletes, rebels, outcasts, and freethinkers all around the world. Few songs in modern history can instantly ignite the adrenaline of music fans the way the song’s opening dirty bass riff, and drum roll can. From zero to 100 mph in a matter of seconds. That speaker destroying opening riff is unstoppable. And the song changed the course of hard rock…forever.
Now, 40 years later we are celebrating this milestone album’s anniversary on MOTÖRHEAD DAY 2020, ‘The 8th Of May’ by inviting the fans from around the globe to join us on this special day where everything is louder than everything else!
