4.0 excellentmotorhead1308 | October 7th 17

This was a great idea with the release of the David Bowie cover video, Heroes. However there are way too many songs that Motörhead covered that are not on this release. If they were going to release another Motörhead album it should have been done right and not rushed.rThat said Lemmy may have thought the title of the album was rather clever 0OrWe're missing quite a list of songs that they covered though. Probably their most important cover of the existence of the band. How is Louie Louie not included? It single handedly kept this band alive. Had they not head into the studio to record that they would have quit and there never would have been a Motörhead.rMissing from this album:rLouie Louie (Richard Berry cöver)rBeer Drinkers and Hell Raisers (ZZ Top cöver)rThe Trooper (Iron Maide cöver)rEnter Sandman (Metallica cöver)rShout it out Loud (Kiss cöver)rHighway to Hell (ACDC cöver)rIt's A Long Way To The Top (ACDC cöver)rNot entirely sure if these were with the rest of MotörheadrBack in the USSR (Beatles cöver)rLet it Rock (Chuck Berry cöver)rGood Rockin TonightrA few of these songs were released on non Motörhead titled releases. So they haven't been circulated as much as the others that are present on Under Cöver. If you're a hardcore Motörhead fan, (and you should be) then you've already heard most of this material. Is there nothing else locked away in the vaults???? I find that extremley hard to believe that they don't have more previously unreleased cövers.

This is one of those albums I'm very on the fence about because when I jam its songs I'm having a great time and everything sounds great. However, from the cover art to the fact that each song, with the exception of "Heroes", has been previously released, screams cash grab and Motorhead has been the absolute opposite of that. Therefore, I cannot deny the fact that I enjoyed the album but there is no way I am going to pay and reward anyone who is behind this release which would have never seen the light of the day while Lemmy was alive.
