Trash/Thrash Tuesday: Motorhead – “Killed By Death”

Well, my little friends.  It’s a sad day here in the graveyard, and I’m certain by now that everyone has heard that Lemmy Kilmister from Motorhead has died after a very short battle with aggressive cancer.

What to say really..  Motorhead, for me anyways, has always been this amazing constant.  Lemmy was Lemmy and was brutally rocking long before I was born.  I grew up listening to Motorhead.  In heavy metal, Motorhead was this constant image, where there were no goofy years, no ridiculous hype machines beyond the man himself.  I think what makes this man’s death such a sucker punch, is that he didn’t see it coming.  His family, friends, fans and all those who loved him were ill prepared to deal with the reality that is cancer.  Cancer.  What a fucking punch in the face.  Cancer, the insidious rebellion of the body’s own cells.  I suppose it can be said though, that nothing could kill Lemmy, aside from himself, his own body turned against him.

He didn’t go out with a needle in his arm, or cocaine scattered around…  though that may have been preferable to him, and let’s be serious who wouldn’t want to die with your face in a pair of big fake boobies dusted with cocaine.  But truthfully, Lemmy was a man who didn’t give a shit.  His personality, his life, his music, all of them these great elements that made up a man who didn’t give a shit about really anything.  Whether you remember Lemmy rocketing through a wall on a motorbike, Ace of Spades, or him gobblin up fries and chips in the Metal documentary..  we here at the graveyard are doing some Thrashing this week in his honor.  Raise your glasses and those horns up!

Lemmy-eyeball

Sad to SEE you go, sir.

 

If you squeeze my lizard
I’ll put my snake on you
I’m a romantic adventure
And I’m a reptile too

[CHORUS:]
But it don’t make no difference
‘cos I ain’t gonna be, easy, easy
the only time I’m gonna be easy’s when I’m
Killed by death [x4]

I’m a lone wolf ligger
But I ain’t no pretty boy
I’m a backbone shiver
and I’m a bundle of joy

[CHORUS]

But it don’t make no difference
‘cos I ain’t gonna be, easy, easy
the only time I’m gonna be easy’s when I’m
Killed by death
Killed by death
Killed by death
Killed by death
