Headbanger

Album: Greatest Hits Vol. 1 (1980)

  • Lyrics
  • Short (1 minute 26 seconds) and not-so-sweet but to the point, the 1980 track "Headbanger" from the Rejects' debut album is a tribute song of sorts. We all know what they are, but this one is a particular individual, Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead. >>
