Metallica has tribute song to Lemmy Kilmister called “Murder One”, in their upcoming studio album “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct”. The album will be release on November 18.
James Hetfield was interviewed by Gary Moore of the 95.5 Klos radio station. He talked about Lemmy Kilmister and share story of the song title, which tribute song to Lemmy, called “Murder One”. He said:
“It’s a song called “Murder One”, which was the name of Lemmy’s amplifier, his favorite amp on stage. And I loved being murdered every night by that thing, man. He was just such an icon, such an inspiration to us as a band. There’s certainly no way we’d be around if there was no Motörhead. And, you know, to see your idol, your immortal one, actually be mortal, it hit us pretty hard. So I felt, lyrically, it makes sense to acknowledge him and how much he’s meant in our lives.”
