Kingdom Of The Worm

Album: Kiss Of Death (2006)

Songfacts®:

  • In an interview with Room Thirteen shortly after the release of Kiss Of Death, Lemmy was asked if this song was about the UK. An Englishman might object to that, even one who has relocated to the Promised Land!

    Rather than take offense, Lemmy gave the obvious answer: "No. It's about death. Death is 'The Kingdom Of The Worm,' and the worm wins every time, they always get to eat you and you don't get to eat them."
  • Running to 4 minutes 8 seconds, the uptempo group composition "Kingdom Of The Worm" is Track 11 on the August 2006 album. >>
