Motorhead at Luna Park, Sydney, 28/3/11

"We are Motorhead and we play rock and fucking roll." These are the first words Ian Lemmy Kilmister says every time he steps up on stage. And he's right - that's exactly what they do. It's like he's reminding people that regardless of how many drunken arguments you might have about whether the latest band is thrash metal, death metal or black metal, whether something is prog rock or space rock, or whatever the fuck else, one simple fact remains: It's all rock and roll.

Motorhead have been playing rock and roll for more than 30 years and they're still awesome. They still put on a clinic of just what a hard, heavy, tight, fast band should sound like.
