One thing Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee liked to do over their years together in Motörhead, was grab a favorite song by another artist and give it a good old fashioned ‘Motörheading'. To run them through the Motörizer if you will. To rock them, roll them and even give them an extra twist and edge. In celebration of some of those finest moments, the band presents Under Cöver, a collection of some of their best covers including a previously unreleased version of David Bowie's "Heroes" recorded during the Bad Magicsessions in 2015 by Cameron Webb - one of the last songs the band ever recorded together.
To that ethic, the rest of the essential album contains loud and proud, raucous and raging rock 'n' roll takes on the likes of "God Save The Queen" (Sex Pistols), "Cat Scratch Fever" (Ted Nugent), "Rockaway Beach," (The Ramones), "Breaking The Law" (Judas Priest) and "Whiplash" (Metallica) which earned the band a Grammy in 2005 for Best Metal Performance. "We were happy with them at the time and we're happy with them now!" affirms Campbell, whilst Dee says, "We should remember that it's about having some fun with songs that we all loved."
