** Despite being the archetype of heavy metal, Lemmy preferred 'Rock And Roll' to describe his band's genre. This was a backlash because he displayed some disdain for this before. He was quoted as saying 'heavy metal was too slow and boring' at the time, and they wanted to play fast rock and roll as an antidote to it.

* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Creator/MichaelPalin makes an appearance on the ''Rock 'n' Roll'' album.
** Music/OzzyOsbourne, on "I Ain't No Nice Guy". It helps that Lemmy wrote the song "Hellraiser" for Ozzy, which was later done by Motörhead themselves on ''March Or Die''.
** [[Music/GunsNRoses Slash]] also appears in "Hellraiser" and does some solo work on "You Better Run".



* OldShame: Lemmy expressed regret over appearing in the film ''The Decline of Western Civilization II: The Metal Years'' because he felt that the movie makes heavy metal fans and musicians look like idiots.

** After WTG shut itself down, band went to the german ZYX records because they gave the best offer. Unfortunately, ZYX didn't want to put much effort to promote the band (beceause they claimed it would cost too much) and the album ''Bastards'' went unnoticed by the consumers.
