I don't think it's as good as the original, but it's 1000x better than I'd imagined. I don't even like Lemmy's voice usually, but the rough raspy tones give the song an interesting quality.

I really like it. It's not an instant classic or anything and I prefer the original but it's a nice take on the song.

It's Lemmy's take on the song. How can you go wrong with that? If you were expecting golden pipes with high end resonation and perfect tone you either don't know who Lemmy is or someone lied to you. LOL

I thought it was brilliant. I wasnt too crazy about Lombardo´s drumming though.
Just a bit of fun, not to be taken that seriously. Nothing wrong with that
