Band of the Week: Motörhead

Hi, this week's band is Motorhead. Originating from London, they technically count as one of the most popular New Wave of British Heavy Metal bands, along with Iron Maiden and Def Leppard. The name Motorhead is a word for speed freak. The reason I like Motorhead is because they have the flowing guitars that Thin Lizzy does and the bass lines and rhythm of Judas Priest, with a little of their own special style. Their music makes me think of a big muscular guy walking down a street, throwing cars and smashing street posts. Motorhead reigns supreme.


  1. awesome analysis. however, i was wondering if you could explain the phrase "flowing guitars"...i like the description, just want some clarification. thanks, and keep up the good blogging.
