Kilmister's band Motorhead was one of those bands that could cross tribal barriers and boundaries. They were much loved for instance by a lot of people who loved punk rock but didn't care all that much for metal--which was their main categorization. I've always loved bands that play loud and make lots of racket---though OTOH if something doesn't sound good played acoustically--it's shit and there's nothing you can do for it. Anyway RIP Lemmy.
