Video: Motörhead – Ace Of Spades


“Ace of Spades” is a song by English heavy metal band Motörhead, released in 1980 as a single and the title track to the album Ace of Spades.

The song opens with an overdriven bass intro played by Lemmy. For the lyrics, he said he “used gambling metaphors, mostly cards and dice—when it comes to that sort of thing, I’m more into the one-arm bandits actually, but you can’t really sing about spinning fruit, and the wheels coming down”.

In 2017, the song was used by Kia in a television commercial to promote the new Turbocharged Soul, an automobile.
