The metal legend had hoped the UK’s biggest metal acts could mimic “The Big 4” of thrash.
The Rock Hall realized the error of its ways, adding the longtime members to the band’s nomination.
The nomination is for the band’s original lineup of Lemmy Kilmister, Philthy Animal Taylor, and Fast Eddie Clarke.
Depeche Mode, Motörhead, and Whitney Houston are among this year’s other finalists.
The track appears on an upcoming EP of the same name.
Larry Wallis played on Motorhead’s On Parole album, which was intended to be their debut LP.
The song was recorded 10 years ago, and will appear on Lynday Kay’s upcoming double album.
The longtime Motörhead guitarist’s guest-heavy solo debut, Old Lions Still Roar, arrives October 25th.
The set includes 180-gram vinyl reissues of Overkill and Bomber, plus previously unheard concert recordings, B-sides, collectible books, and more.
The event benefitted the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund.
Two special releases are coming from the legendary UK rock act.
Be prepared for plenty of scoffing and endless frustration.
