Motörhead have torn it up on 20 studio albums, and for Aftershock – their 21st – the rockers haven't lost their bite. Lemmy and crew bare their teeth for "Crying Shame," with spitfire riffs and wild, stabbing piano. "Never knew your name," Lemmy sneers in the chorus. "It's a crying shame."

Aftershock will be out October 22nd. Last month, the band cut short and canceled some live dates in Europe over health issues plaguing Lemmy, but the band has promised they'll be back on the road as soon as possible.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
