1979 was MOTÖRHEAD year – the year of “Overkill” and “Bomber”. MOTÖRHEAD, the loudest band in the world, with the power and force of a hundred pneumatic drills they destroyed the nation over and again and no-one, repeat no-one, remained unaffected by them – everyone was torn limb from limb. The albums “Overkill” and “Bomber” were ten times more powerful than their first album “Motörhead”, which was a killer in itself. The production was in the capable and experienced hands of one Jimmy Miller, whose previous successes had been with the likes of the Rolling Stones. He brought out the very best in the boys and the total effect was lethal. “Overkill” and “Bomber” are real skullcrackers, brain damaging to the nth degree and with the hit singles “Overkill”, “No Class” and “Bomber” you can doubtless guess the destroying effect of the whole affair. That’s MOTÖRHEAD, straight, basic, down to earth rock and roll, with absolutely no holds barred. MOTÖRHEAD released 22 studio albums, 10 live recordings, 12 compilation albums, and 5 EPs over a career spanning 40 years. Usually a power trio, they had particular success in the early 1980s with several successful singles in the UK Top 40 chart. The albums “Overkill”, “Bomber”, “Ace of Spades”, and particularly the live album “No Sleep ‘til Hammersmith” cemented MOTÖRHEAD’s reputation as a top-tier rock band. The band are ranked number 26 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock. As of 2016, they have sold more than 15 million albums worldwide.
