Milo here.

There’s just more of this. More of *this*. Accept it. Just — I have. It’s too much but I can’t stop.

Today, we’re looking at yet another Motorhead classic in Bomber from their 1979 album of the same name. Check the video below:

Closing out the decade that birthed heavy metal in suitably headbanging fashion, the original Motorhead lineup also managed to write a song that encapsulated everything about their sound, making it one of their many signature tracks and, in my opinion, their best.
From that lead opening riff from Fast Eddie, you can tell that this song is gonna rock and that it does. It’s such a genius guitar part with some proper technical efficiency thrown in the mix, complimenting that absolutely rotten bass — while living up to his name in every possible sense. This is backed up by some of Philthy Animal’s less breakneck drumming, but still having that aggressive urgency about it. All topped off with Lemmy’s trademark slurrish growls; the guacamole to these heavy metal nachos.

“Ain’t a hope in Hell, nothing’s gonna bring us down.”
