Are we on this again? Seriously?
Lemmy doesn't want drones for fans who follow his every single word like it's gospel, he just wants us to have fun and enjoy the music. Personal opinions about what genre the band sits in and so on are just that, personal opinions, and it really doesn't matter if one person says Motorhead are Metal and another says Rock N' Roll because they're just labels to identify the band's approach to music.
In my view, given the band's recent sound over the last 10 to 20 years, they do have a sound that can be considered as Heavy Metal. With the use of lower tunings beyond Eb and also the speed elements on some songs like 'Stagefright/Crash and Burn' which can lead to tags like 'Speed Metal', but again it's merely a system to label as trying to clearly identify and define things is something that society is compelled to do when faced with something that it doesn't quite understand.
Blackadder, you're entitled to an opinion as is everyone else here, but to say that someone with a differing opinion to yours is "Going against Lemmy" or the band is just idiotic. Everyone here is a dedicated MH fan, we've all supported the band via our purchases and also by seeing them live, and just because some of us may differ on what genre to label the band doesn't make anyone more or less of a fan or more right or wrong than anyone else. You need to stop taking everything that Lemmy says as the way things must be, Lemmy's merely stating his own views about how he personally does things and just because we're fans of his band doesn't mean we have to smile and nod along blindly.
