In memory of band Motörhead’s founding member and singer Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister who died recently at the age of 70, we have dug up a music video from the band released in 2010 which attacks Wall Street and the rigged society we all exist in as Americans.

Some key lyrics:

“The way we are is not the way we used to be my friend,
All things come to he who waits, the waiting never ends.”

“We are the dogs of war; don’t even know what for,
But we obey the law, get back in line.”

“Why do we vote for faceless dogs? We always take the bait.
All things come to he who waits, but all things come too late.”

The remaining bandmembers released this statement, and we intend to honor their request:

“We cannot begin to express our shock and sadness; there aren’t words.”

“We will say more in the coming days, but for now, please … play Motörhead loud, play Hawkwind loud, play Lemmy’s music LOUD. Have a drink or few.”
