Listen to Motorhead's cover of Whiplash
Motorhead covered Metallica's Whiplash and you can listen to it now
Motorhead are releasing a covers album entitled Under Cover on September 1, which includes their cover of Whiplash by Metallica.
Speaking to Hammer about the cover, drummer Mikkey Dee says: "As you know we love Metallica and they love us, and this is one of the songs we liked a lot and covered it back then. The snare, the riffs – all that fit in with Motorhead."
Motorhead's cover of Whiplash won them Grammy for Best Metal Performance in 2005, which Mikkey describes as "total irony."
"It's okay, but it would have meant more if was one of our own songs."
Their version of Whiplash follows the stream of the previously unreleased cover of Heroes by David Bowie.
