Motörhead came to an end in 2015 after the band’s founder, bassist and vocalist Lemmy Kilmister died at the age of 70. Their final album “Bad Magic” was released in that same year but in 2023 the group revealed another previously unreleased song called “Greedy Bastards”. In 2022 they had already released another one called “Bullet In Your Brain”.
Both tracks were part of the sessions for their final album and will now be part of the “Bad Magic: Seriously Bad Magic”, a bonus edition of the album with unreleased material that will be out next February 24.
Besides Lemmy, Motörhead was also formed at the time by guitarist Phil Campbell and drummer Mikkey Dee.
“Don’t ask me how I feel today
I only want to get away
I don’t understand the words
You want to hear me say”
“I don’t believe there’s anyone
On earth to stop us going wrong
Don’t ask why I like silence
I shake you to the bone
Shake you to the bone”
“The way we treat the world we have
Is criminal and cruel
They steal the air we breathe and that ain’t cool
You really want to see our kids choking in the air
Greedy bastards you don’t even care”
“You better look around you
Somethin’s in the wind
It’s not quite Armageddon
But it’s the next best thing”
“Do you think it’s paranoia?
Maybe you should call your lawyer
Don’t think you’re gonna be safe here
When the world breaks in
When the world breaks in”
“Same people every time around
Will send you to your death
They only want to keep you in their debt
Do you want your children wearing gas masks in their schools?
Greedy bastards make ‘em break the rules
Break the rules aye”
“In the seats of power
The old men sit and talk
Vote against them then you get to walk
The secrets within secrets
Are be’in hid away
Greed bastards like to make them pay
I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
