Motorhead Get the Lego Treatment
Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on
‘The Lego Movie’ is the biggest movie of 2014 (so far), topping the box office while enjoying some of the best reviews that a family-friendly film has seen in quite some time. But would a little Motorhead have made it even better?
That’s the question we’re asking after watching the series of clips pieced together (ha! Get it?) by It’s Not Beginnings, who used Legos to create new music videos for classic tracks by Motorhead, the Sex Pistols, and the Damned.
Naturally, Motorhead’s spot is set to ‘Ace of Spades'; you can watch the whole thing at the top of this post, and check out the other videos here. If you’re in the mood for general fun weirdness, you can visit the It’s Not Beginnings YouTube page, which includes the Lego videos as well as intriguing stuff like a 50-year age progression that unfolds over a mere minute and 19 seconds.
Not that we ever expected to see Motorhead involved with anything that came out of the toy aisle, but we think you’ll agree it’s a natural fit — they even nailed the logo (and Lemmy‘s facial hair). Who should be next in line for their own Lego video?
