Today Is Declared Motörhead Day


Happy Motörhead Day everybody... or at least everybody from Austin, TX.

In a proclamation made by Mayor Lee Leffingwell, March 8th 2011, has been decreed as Motörhead Day in the city of Austin. This event coincides with Motörhead's local performance at Stubb's Ampitheater on the evening of their dedicated day.

Local musician David Siddall reportedly made the formal request to the Mayor's Office, and a signed proclamation was issued on parchment with the official state seal.




The proclamation states:

Be it known that
Whereas,
The Live Music Capital of the World welcomes the band Motörhead to our City for one of the many stops on its US Tour; and,
Whereas,
Motörhead, founded by Lemmy Klimister [sic], recently celebrated its 35th Anniversary of making music that has received worldwide recognition; and,
Whereas,
Motörhead's current tour coincides with the US release of its latest album "The World is Yours;" and,
Whereas,
We extend best wishes for a great show in Austin and continued success for the band;
Now, Therefore,
I, Lee Leffingwell, Mayor of The Live Music Capital of the World, do hereby proclaim March 8, 2011, as Motörhead Day in Austin.

Wait... Stubbs Amphitheater? After the famous/awesome Texas BBQ man?



holy shit! it is..



catching a great band at a cool outdoor venue... with beer and bbq? that would be awesome overload!

(and if you live in the US and maybe Canada, see if your local supermarket carries his sauce/rubs/marinades. great stuff. use it religiously when i grill.)

Just like "National Slayer Day", this is retarded, regardless of this event actually being official instead of just a buncha douche bags on the internet trying to get a day named after Slayer.

They say we'll be your friends we'll stick with you till the end
But everybody's only looking out for themselves
And you say who can you trust I'll tell you nobody
