Lemmy Must Be Smiling Down From Heaven!
Motörhead’s 1980 classic hit Ace of Spades is a legendary rock anthem and one of the band’s signature songs too. In a recent poll by PokerStars, it was just voted as the Greatest Gambling Song of All Time. The poker company surveyed 1,000 of its European customers and Ace of Spades elbowed out even Lady Gaga’s 2008 breakthrough pop tune “Poker Face.”
Oh and Motörhead didn’t win by a narrow margin too. According to PokerStar, Ace of Spades “not only won, but crushed” Gaga and the other songs. Sure, it may not be the most legit survey out there but it still counts for something.
Lemmy Kilmister passed away over three years ago but his legacy is still going strong. Just the other day, James Hetfield filmed himself rocking out to Ace of Spades in his car! You can check out the video below which he shared on Instagram.
Know what’s better than road trips? It’s blasting Motörhead tunes on the way.
