The only way to feel the noise is when it's good and loud.

Nothing you can say about this album. Just look in the mirror after you put this album on. You will begin to see your face melting!

Lemmy has the voice of an angel...

I really like Lemmy and his voice, but this hilarious statement just made my day

This will always stand out among both Motörheads albums and in the Metal genre in general as one of the most influential albums of all time. Overkill sucks you dry from the first moment, yet creates new energy for you. Leaves you begging for mercy from the first second. Amazing, astouding, completely impossible to miss this record for Motörhead fans.

If Overkill comes on when you're driving it's impossible to not speed and drive erratically.
