The emergence of steampunk as a genre and a style has arguably been one of the more significant developments of 21st century pop culture. Steampunk itself is difficult to define, due to the fact that there has never been any "official" organization present to provide those definitions or parameters.

Motörhead (/ˈmoʊtərhɛd/) were an English rock band formed in June 1975 by bassist, singer, and songwriter Ian Fraser "Lemmy" Kilmister, who was the sole constant member, guitarist Larry Wallis and drummer Lucas Fox.

Motörhead released 23 studio albums, 10 live recordings, 12...
