Motörhead mainman Lemmy reckons axes are much better than swords when it comes to slaying record label jobsworths.
In an interview with Metal Maniacs, the be-moled frontman revealed his dislike of "greedy fucking labels" who unnecessarily release repackaged albums for no reason, like Bronze Records in Japan, who have just re-released nine Motörhead albums complete with cardboard sleeves and 24-bit remastering.
"Why's it necessary in the first bloody place?" he mused. "If they're worth re-releasing because they're out of print or something, fine, but why not put them out as they were when they first came out? I just wanna grab a sword and impale the guy whose idea it was.
"Actually, an axe would probably be better. People tend to fear an axe more than a sword, don't they? The axe is only gonna take your head half-off so it's laying on your shoulder and you're still aware, just running around all panic-stricken… So yeah, an axe is better."
