* {{Badass}}: Lemmy Kilmister, of course!
** BadassBookworm: Ozzy praised Lemmy on being incredibly well-read and intelligent, often packing his luggage mostly with books. When he was writing lyrics for Ozzy he'd blown through a World War II book Ozzy lent him in an hour and wrote the man ''three'' sets of lyrics for "Mama, I'm Coming Home."
** BadassGrandpa: Dude rocked harder than most people a third of his age until his death.
** BadassLonghair
** BadassMustache: Just ''look'' at those magnificent chops.

Mot[[{{HeavyMetalUmlaut}} ö]]rhead was founded in the middle of TheSeventies by bassist/vocalist Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister, after being fired from Music/{{Hawkwind}} for, in Lemmy's words, "doing the wrong kind of drugs." Many members, with only Lemmy remaining, came and went. Along with Music/JudasPriest, they kickstarted the NewWaveOfBritishHeavyMetal at the end of TheSeventies. Despite being called "the most punk band of the Heavy Metal scene", Lemmy preferred to call the music of his band by the simple name of "Rock and Roll."
