Songfacts®:

  • This blistering track from the 1979 Bomber album contains not only some incredible lead guitar but some frantic bass. It has also been performed on occasion by Metallica.

    Running to nearly 5 minutes with fade, "Stone Dead Forever" is a group composition. Motörhead's Lemmy died December 28, 2015, four days after his 70th birthday party at the Whiskey A Go Go. A confirmed agnostic, Lemmy's motto was, "Born to lose, live to win." Most people would agree that before being stone dead forever he had indeed lived life to the full and won. >>
