Motörhead release Hammered
Hammered is the sixteenth album by the British band Motörhead.
Released in 2002, the limited edition of this release included a bonus CD, featuring three tracks and a preview of the Motörhead DVD 25 & Alive Boneshaker.
"The Game" was written by WWE music composer Jim Johnston as the entrance theme for wrestler Triple H. At two WrestleMania events, WrestleMania X-Seven and WrestleMania 21, Motörhead would perform this song live as Triple H made his entrance to the ring.
Joe Petagno, long time sleeve artist, had this insight into the concept of the album artwork: "It was originally going to be used for the 27-year-old anniversary design, we took the 27 out and experimented. The first idea Lemmy had was to put two crossed hammers in at the bottom, but it looked too Russian. Then we opted for an ace in the end. It was supposed to be the gold braid you'd have on your military cap or shoulder. It's very pretty. The most difficult part was the lettering. The highlights and shadowing."
