Yes it’s Mom’s day but did you know that Saturday, May 8 was Motörhead day ? It is the official day for fans to unite online ( and maybe in-person) in assorted places to share memories and wave their devil horns as one in honor of the legendary rock behemoths. The reason it takes place on the 8th of May is because of the date’s phonic relation to the band’s classic song/album “Ace Of Spades”.
The 8th of May. Yeah, you get it 🙂
I met Lemmy back in 2008 and he greeted me with a “Hello Luv” that I still cherish to this day. The sounds of Motörhead helped get me through one of the most frustrating and stressful years of my entire adult working life. During that time span there occurred one particularly spectacular day when I’d so had it with the bureaucratic goings on at my job, I listened to 8 straight, non-stop hours of Motörhead. Just one song after another, turned up to 11, alone in my tiny office. “Iron Fist” 👊, “Overkill” ☠️, “Love Me Like A Reptile” 🐍. I left work that day feeling like I could kick the world i.e.head office, in their collective ass. Meet my iron fist bitches 😈 (well, sort of). And so Happy Motörhead Day everyone, turn it up🤘 (and maybe pour one out for the guys that are no longer here; Lemmy, Fast Eddie, Philthy Phil and Würzel🌹).
