3 Ace Of Spades - Motorhead

Now BEFORE you tell me this isn't a Rock N' Roll song well you are wrong it is a Rock N' Roll song like Lemmy Says Motorhead is not a Metal band but a Rock N' Roll band and plus if you listen to it it has a Rock N' Roll Rythum to it - christangrant

Even if it isn't a rock and roll song, it's surely NOT metal...
