“Iron Fist” is a song by the British heavy metal band Motörhead. It was released as a single in 1982, in 7″ pressings in blue, black and translucent red vinyl.
The title track on the single is covered with (B-side’s) “Remember Me, I’m Gone”, which appears on CD re-issues of the Iron Fist album. In Spain, the title track was put on the B-side of “Go to Hell” and was issued with a picture sleeve of the band dressed as warriors in skull masks.
This is the last single featuring the classic Motörhead line-up of Lemmy, “Fast” Eddie Clarke and Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor, as Clarke left following the recording of the Stand By Your Man EP.
On 27 March 1982, Lemmy, Clarke and Taylor were interviewed by Tommy Vance on BBC Radio 1’s ‘Rock On Saturday’ show, “Iron Fist”, “Loser”, and “Speedfreak” were played.
