Last week, Motörhead's iconic frontman, Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister, passed away. His fame almost eclipsed the fame of his group: Lemmy was, and is, an institution. Since his passing, folks from all over the globe have found new and interesting ways to celebrate his tremendous career...including possibly renaming a heavy metal after him (like, the an actual scientific element.)
As we wait for his memorial service to be live-streamed, we learn Lemmy is being celebrated in another way: People are really listening to and buying the band's biggest tune, 1980's "Ace of Spades." The song has made its Billboard chart debut, hitting No. 12 on Hot Rock Songs and No. 24 on the Rock Streaming Songs chart.
