Not speed metal, not even very much metal but if it's necessary to classify it as metal then it's fast paced heavy metal, but no way it's speed metal. - somekindofaguy

Don't take me wrong here - I like this song but Motorhead are NOT metal, never been. Lemmy himself stated that in 2011:
"We were not heavy metal. We were a rock'n'roll band. Still are. Everyone always describes us as heavy metal even when I tell them otherwise. Why won't people listen?" (you can read it in the wiki article about Motorhead)

Provided that Motorhead are not a metal band, I'm not sure this song is speed metal - yes, it's fast but it doesn't mean it's speed metal and shouldn't be on this list. As I said in the heading - not every fast song is speed metal. - Metal_Treasure

46 Metal on Metal - Anvil

I'm an Anvil fan and they really play speed metal but this song is not speed metal. Moreover, everybody would agree that it's not even that fast. - Metal_Treasure

47 Overkill - Motorhead

Motorhead are not a metal band. Listen to Lemmy - he says the same: not metal. - Metal_Treasure
