The 1977 classic, which was written by Bowie and Brian Eno in Berlin, is one of the songs that has been 'Motörized' by the band and appears on the soon to be released album, Under Cöver.
Whilst still capturing the tone that set the original song apart from others, the cover has more of a raw sound, layered with the unmistakable vocals of the late Lemmy Kilmister. The hopeful melancholic rhythm of the song is renewed with a more rocky, gritty good time vibe.
The video to which the song plays over the top, serves as a sort of memoir of the Band's journey together as well as on the road, proving that they themselves could be 'heroes' to each other and to their fans.
Recorded during the Bad Magic period by American producer Cameron Webb, the song is one of the tracks to be 'Motörheaded' by the band on the upcoming Under Cöver album. Phil Campbell remarks that “it's such a great Bowie song, one of his best, and I could only see great things coming out of it from us, and so it proved to be, Lemmy ended up loving our version.” Mikkey Dee adds “He was very, very proud of it, not only because it turned out so well but because it was fun! Which is what projects like this should be – fun!”
The album which is due for release in September includes covers of other famous tracks such as Sex Pistols' 'God Save The Queen', Ted Nugent's 'Cat Scratch Fever' and their Grammy winning take on Metallica's 'Whiplash'.
