Unreleased Motorhead Cover of David Bowie's "Heroes" Debuted

Lemmy Kilmister brain child Motorhead put out quite a few covers in their day, but one that I personally never expected was the one that just came out, and that is their own interpretation on the David Bowie classic Heroes (which can be listened to above).

I was pleasantly surprised by what I heard. Motorhead really made Heroes their own while still staying true to the vibe of the original. Lemmy's voice fits the song surprisingly well, especially with the overall sound of the cover. Most importantly though, you can tell that they were having a good time with this and not trying to outdo Bowie.

The previously unreleased cover is going to be part of an upcoming covers album from Motorhead album Under Cover, the first posthumous release of unreleased material since Kilmister's death on December 28th, 2015. The album will feature Motorhead's interpretations on classics from bands like The Sex Pistols, Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, and The Rolling Stones. It will be out on September 1st of this year.
