Metallica have been thrash metal overlords for a long time, so it’s fitting that they pay tribute to another legend: Lemmy. Their 2016 album ‘Harwired… to Self Destruct’ includes adrenaline-anthem Murder One, sharing its title with the nickname Lemmy gave an amp. For fans of both, it’s emotional listening.

Robert Valley’s accompanying music video gives a further punch that is likely to have even the most tough-looking metal-heads waving away onion chopping ninjas. Damn those ninjas. It tells the story of Lemmy’s I-own-the-place stroll into the rock history books, whilst Hetfield and co. roar through the audio track.

Lemmy, RIP. Though this time, the ‘R’ stands for Rock.
