The last two months have sadly seen the passing of both Phil ‘Philthy Animal’ Taylor and Lemmy Kilminster from the almighty Motorhead. Motorhead are a band who were integral to many a skateboarder’s musical upbringing, something immediately visible when you look at the number of video sections that the band’s music has appeared in. Fast, heavy and raw, they managed to bridge musical divides and tastes in a way that not many others could achieve.
As an ode to the band, to Phil and to Lemmy, we have put together some of the classic moments where, over the years, skateboarding and Motorhead have met. Pour yourself a jack and coke, turn the volume up and enjoy.
