Out of stock


It is one of two studio albums with the short-lived Lemmy, Würzel, Zööm and Mikkey Dee lineup, as on the previous album Dee was a ‘special guest’ drummer and hadn’t officially joined the band. It was also the first of four Motörhead albums to be produced by Howard Benson, and the first Motörhead studio album not to contain a title track. After unsuccessfully commercialising the success of 1916 with its 1992 follow-up March ör Die, the band returned to their roots: being loud and fast. The lyrical themes range from social criticism (“On Your Feet or on Your Knees”), to war (“Death or Glory” and “I am the Sword”) to child abuse (“Don’t Let Daddy Kiss Me”) and total mayhem (“Burner”). Lemmy also states in his memoir that he offered “Don’t Let Daddy Kiss Me” to both Joan Jett and Lita ForD/ “..’cause I thought a girl should sing it but no one ever took it up..”
