"The 8th of May, The 8th of May" – MOTORHEAD Declare The Loudest Day of the Year
THE 8TH OF MAY, THE 8TH OF MAY! To celebrate 40 years since the release of the iconic Motorhead song "Ace of Spades," Motorhead are doing a silly promotion on May 8th.
I seemed to think it was silly when I tweeted about it last night, but a good bunch of folks disagreed with me, so I wanted to make sure other folks who don't seem to think this is silly know about it.

There is a Facebook event page for the celebration and you can see the full press release below:
Few songs in modern history can instantly ignite the adrenaline of music fans the way the song’s opening dirty bass riff and drum roll can. From zero to 100 mph in a matter of seconds, that speaker-destroying opening riff is unstoppable. And the song changed the course of hard rock… forever.
Now, 40 years later we are celebrating this milestone album’s anniversary on Motörhead Day 2020, ‘The 8th Of May’ by inviting you, and fans from around the globe, to join us on this special day where everything is louder than everything else!
