Keep Rockin' With a Motorhead T-Shirt

Motorhead is an English rock band who rose fame during the 70s and 80s, cementing their name in heavy-metal history. Many people credit them with pioneering the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, which was essentially a newer and more energized form of heavy metal rock. Whether you consider Motorhead to be classic rock, heavy metal, new wave, or a combination thereof, there's no denying the fact that they are one of the most prolific bands of all time.

To put the popularity of Motorhead into perspective, they've released a jaw-dropping 21 full-length studio albums since forming in 1975. This includes 10 live records, five Eps, and a dozen compilations. Throughout the early-to-mid 80s, however, is when Motorhead experienced the highest level of success, having numerous singles jump to the UK Top 40 chart.

Ask any serious Motorhead fan and they'll agree: some of the band's greatest albums include Overkill, Ace of Spades, and No Sleep 'till Hammersmith. Their unique combination of punk rock, heavy metal, speed metal and thrash metal exposed music-lovers to an entire new genre – something that wasn't seen or heard from by other bands.

Motorhead is well-known for its iconic logo depicting a fanged skull with boar's tusks, chains and spikes. Graphic artist Joe Petango created the logo back in 1977 for the band's Motorhead album. While it was initially intended to be used for that album only, fans seemed to LOVE the logo, so Motorhead decided to use in future albums and memorabilia as well. Today, it's become an integral part of the Motorhead brand.

If you're a die-hard Motorhead fan, you can show your support for this legendary heavy metal band by sporting one of the Motorhead t-shirts offered here at BeltsBucklesTees. We offer a wide variety of stylish Motorhead tees, including the classic Motorhead-England shirt depicted below. Featuring the band's name along with their skull logo followed by “England,” it's a stunning shirt that resembles the band's character.

Alternatively, you may want to check out the following Motorhead shirt. It also features the band's name and logo. However, it uses a reddish-orange border and includes “XXXV” at the bottom. The addition of reddish-orange coloring to the shirt helps it contrast against the black background. Whether you choose the first or second shirt, you really can't go wrong with either of them.
