motorhead said not to buy their boxset

Motorhead: Don't buy our new box set


Call it "Overkill" if you must, but the iron-fisted metal band Motörhead doesn't want its fans to buy their extravagant new 15-disc box set that comes out Tuesday.


At over $600, it's too expensive.

"Unfortunately greed once again rears its yapping head," said frontman Lemmy Kilmister. "I would advise against it even for the most rabid completists!"

Housed in a Motörhead-style skull with red light-up eyes, the package includes the eight early albums -- from the self-titled debut to "No Remorse" -- plus the band's early singles, along with some posters and a photo book.

"Motörhead have no control over what's done with these early songs, and don't want fans to think that the band is involved in putting out such a costly box set," the band said.

The price for the "Complete Early Years Box Set" is similar to The Beatles 2009 Japanese remastered box set, which included 16 discs and a DVD, according the website most-expensive.net. The U.S. version can be purchased these days for less than $200.

ABBA's nine CD box set went for about $500.

But are fans willing to slap down six big bills for set?

In the forum on the band's official website, the limited reaction was negative.

"No way, there's nothing new in that box, not even one new song," said a fan, who goes by the handle MotorLaw. "For serious collectors only."

At least one fan seemed tired of the new spin on the old albums.

"Except for the nice packaging it's just a re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-release!" said Juggernaut.

If its fans aren't spending money on the new box set, what would Motörhead have them do instead?

The band does have a new album and DVD out -- "The Wörld Is Yours" and "The Wörld Is Ours - Vol 1 - Everywhere Further Than Everyplace Else." Both were released late last year.

weird al yankovic to super bowl
Movement Started to Get Weird Al Yankovic For Next Year's Super Bowl Half Time Show

It all started on the day before the Super Bowl when New York Daily News columnist Julian Garcia said "I'd like to see a true American icon invited to take part in the most iconic of American events: Weird Al Yankovic."

What may or may not have been a serious comment has spawned numerous on-line petitions to make Al next year's half-time performer. One of the big ones over at Change.org has already gathered 17,671 signatures and a group on Facebook, Weird Al for Superbowl Half Time Show!, has almost 6,000 members.

Even Time has joined in on the chorus of supporters, posting their five reasons why Al should perform next year.

But what is Al's reaction to all of the interest? At first, he took it as a joke, tweeting "But...Sunday's my laundry day!" but, by this past week, he has come out and said he would be honored to do the show. He told TMZ, "I'd be surprised if that's being seriously considered by the NFL, but prove me wrong!"
