Share

Motörhead has released a cover of David Bowie's "Heroes".

Their gritty take on Bowie's classic 1977 song will appear on their upcoming Under Cover album.

"Recorded in 2015 during sessions for their 22nd and final studio album, "Bad Magic", the track was one of the last songs the band recorded together before frontman Lemmy Kilmister's passing at his Los Angeles home on December 28, 2015 at the age of 70".

A new video for the track combines live footage of the trio from recent years with offstage footage and candid photos of Kilmister, who died in 2015.

Additionally, Sessions said the DOJ is reviewing its media subpoena policy, which some worry may have a chilling effect on the press.

In a press release the surviving members of the band discussed the cover. Due September 1, the project sees the metal legends deliver versions of tunes originally recorded by The Ramones, Metallica, Judas Priest, Ozzy Osbourne, Ted Nugent, The Rolling Stones, Dio and Twisted Sister. "Lemmy ended up loving our version".

"Lemmy was very, very proud of it", says drummer Mickey Dee of the recording.

The only time their cover of "Heroes" was previously heard was the one time they played it live in 2015 as an encore in Germany's Aftershock festival. "Which is what projects like this should be - fun". You can pre-order it now. It's good to know there's still a wealth of Motorhead greatness to be uncovered, this take on David Bowie being no exception.
