MOTÖRHEAD’s Cover of David Bowie’s “Heroes” Surpasses 50 Million YouTube Views
MOTÖRHEAD, the loudest rock ‘n’ roll band known to humankind (and all other species), is once again in the news.
Their cover of the song “Heroes” has surpassed 50 million views on the band’s YouTube channel.
We think our beloved Lemmy would agree that this is an impressive feat. The David Bowie song was one of his favorites.
And those 50 million viewers aren’t the only ones to put Lemmy on a pedestal. During an appearance on BBC Radio and transcribed by Ultimate Guitar, Ozzy Osbourne was asked to single out his rock god. “My rock god is Lemmy Kilmister. Lemmy was a guy - he shot from the hip every time.”
More big MOTÖRHEAD news: For release on October 29 - Everything Louder Forever. This collection is the definitive assembly of MOTÖRHEAD songs. It’s the first time all eras of the band’s recorded history have been represented in one place. During their entire 40 year career, the band released twenty two studio albums, amassing chart topping records worldwide, a Grammy award and racking up around 20 million sales. Their hit song “Ace Of Spades” became MOTÖRHEAD’s anthem, perfectly capturing their attitude for millions, and punching giant holes in stereos worldwide to this day.
