Song of the Day: Motörhead – “Ace of Spades”

Happy birthday to Motörhead frontman Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister, who hits the big 7-0 today. And, even though Motörhead has put out more than their share of great stuff, there’s really no other song that can be picked here. The song came out 35 years ago, and it kicked ass then, kicks ass now, and will always kick ass. It’s the definitive Motörhead song without a doubt and one of the great hard rock songs there is. It’s hard not to get worked up listening to this song.
