No. 2. “Ace of Spades,” Motörhead
Maybe “Ace of Spades” is technically more hard rock than metal – but it certainly rocks harder and faster than any song known to man (metal or otherwise). From the moment Lemmy hits the gas pedal on the opening bass riff, the song never relents. “Philthy Animal” Taylor nobly powers the drums forward at a frenetic pace and “Fast” Eddie Clarke is more than up to the task of ripping a blazing solo directly after the breakdown. And oh, that breakdown. “You know I’m born to lose/And gambling is for fools/But that’s the way I like it, baby/I don’t want to live forever! – And don’t forget the Joker!” If that doesn’t set your blood boiling, then you simply don’t have a pulse.
