“Ace of Spades”
Motörhead's most renowned anthem is the title track from their 1980 album, Ace of Spades. And the song's title should clue you in on what the song is about, as growler/bassist Lemmy Kilmister explains, "Most of the song's just poker, really: 'I know you've got see me read 'em and weep,' 'Dead man's hand again, aces and eights' - that was Wild Bill Hickock's hand when he got shot." Motörhead would perform "Ace of Spades" on an episode of the British television comedy, The Young Ones, which originally aired on May 8, 1984.
