If there is one thing most musicologists wouldn't associate with Motörhead, it's acoustic guitar. Another thing is philosophy. This solo composition by frontman Lemmy has both, and piano.

This introspective number is one with which most people of a certain age - women as well as men - will identify, if they are honest, painful though that honesty may be.
"I Ain't No Nice Guy" is the 5th track on the 1992 March Ör Die album. Running to 4 minutes 18 seconds, it features guest appearances from Ozzy Osbourne and Slash.
