For a band with a history that spans three decades, it is a challenge in itself for Motörhead to live up to even their own previous achievements. However, 2008 proves to be a huge year for the Grammy award winners. With the August 26 release of Motörizer, Motörhead has broken their own sales records and Billboard top 200 chart debut history, Their first week of sales has placed Motörhead in the top 100 overall charts (#82 to be exact), and top 5 on the Indie Charts.

The pre-release attention that Motörizer received was intense and justified. As the album artwork adorned the enormous backdrop on their high-profile Metal Masters Tour, Motörhead reintroduced their fans to some classic tunes, while also debuting songs off of Motörizer. Though this "tour of the year" has just concluded, Motörhead has now set out across the US once again, as headliners of the Volcom Tour with the Misfits.

In addition to these two monstrous tours, Motörhead has been seen on magazine covers around the world, heard on nearly every radio airwave, and will have their song "Rock Out" used as the theme song for the WWE pay per view show "Unforgiven." In addition to countless other radio, print, and television opportunities, it has also just been announced that AT&T will be airing the Motörhead commercial for another 4 months due to its popularity. Motörhead has once again delivered a well-received record that continues to validate their status as "legendary."
