Heavy/speed metal hard rock legends Motorhead are considered to be one of the innovators of the speed/thrash metal movement. Formed in 1975 by Fraser Kilmister, or Lemmy as he's famously know for, Motorhead is a band that was created after Lemmy was kicked out of the band Hawkwind. Lemmy originally wanted to call the band Bastard, but at management's insistence, he instead went with Motorhead. Motorhead has released an extensive collection of 21 studio albums, 5 live albums, 9 compilations, 4 EPs, has released 21 singles and has the distinct honor of being named number 26 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock. Between 1978 and 1979, Motorhead began the rise to fame and fortune with their albums Overkill and Bomber. During that time they played England's popular Reading Festival and both the Overkill tour and Bomber tour, the latter which included a spectacular light show. For the next 30 years following the sensations of Overkill and Bomber, Motorhead went on to release records like No Remorse, Orgasmatron and March or Die and they continued to play in concert around the world to millions of hard rock loving fans. In the year 2010, Motorhead celebrated their 35 anniversary as a band with a series of live performances that accompanied the release of The World is Yours Album and this is the music video for the first single off that album, "Get Back In Line". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O02Gnzn5JDY&ob=av2n
