R.I.P. Lemmy: BVST pays tribute tonight from 7 - 9PM

Hey, this is Angelica from BVST. Lemmy's death this past Monday night left me, along with legions of fans worldwide, stunned and sad. The silence he leaves in his wake is deafening. In his honor, tonight's episode of BVST is going to be a bit different. Tune in to hear classic Motörhead tracks, along with songs featuring Lemmy on vocals (including some surprising covers), interspersed with audio and interview clips of both Lemmy and the many people he inspired. 
The show won't have regular talk spots, so this companion article contains the track listing and clip sources, along with some notes on each track and why I selected it. I hope you'll tune in at 7pm ET tonight and pay tribute Ian Fraser 'Lemmy' Kilmister, a man who never relented, and lived his rock'n'roll truth until the very end. 
Hawkwind - Silver Machine (1972)
The history of Lemmy and Motörhead begins with Hawkwind. Motörhead was born when Lemmy was kicked out of the band after getting arrested in Ontario on drug possession charges.  He took a song he had originally written for Hawkwind, Motörhead, with him, and music was changed forever. This song is a gem, and one of the few Hawkwind songs to feature Lemmy on vocals.
Motörhead - Leaving Here (1977)
A cover of an old Motown track originally by Eddie Holland, this was Motörhead's first ever release.
Motörhead - White Line Fever (1977)
The B-side to Leaving Here, this is one of my all time favorite Motörhead's songs, and also the name of Lemmy's autobiography, which is an essential rock'n'roll read.
Motörhead - Mötorhead (live) (1981 version)
This was Motörhead's first original single, although this version is the one that hit the UK singles chart in 1981 and is pulled from the recordings that created No Sleep Til Hammersmith.
Motörhead - Louie, Louie (1978)
A cover of the Kingsmen classic, this was Motörhead's third single. As is already evident, Motörhead have done many covers through their career, and Lemmy has been involved in many cover projects. Here are three timeless heavy tracks reinterpreted by Lemmy's distinctive voice.
It's a Long Way To The Top - AC/DC as covered by Motörhead (1998)
A fitting tribute from one band that understood longevity and staying true to a musical vision to another. 
Enter Sandman - Metallica as covered by Zebrahead with Lemmy on vocals (2008)
Who wouldn't want Lemmy's raspy growl to lull them to sleep?
The Trooper - Iron Maiden as covered by Lemmy & Phil Campbell of Motörhead, along with Rocky George (Suicidal Tendencies / Fishbone), Chuck Wright (Alice Cooper / White Riot) and Chris Slade (AC/DC) (2005)
Lemmy was no stranger to those compilations of "every metal guy ever performs the songs of INSERT BAND NAME HERE", and we're all better off for it. 
Motörhead - Overkill (1979)
This song closes every Motörhead set, and subsequently,it is the last song that Motörhead ever performed, in Berlin on December 11th, 2015.
Motörhead - Ace of Spades (1980)
No introduction is required for this song. It is a classic, and for good reason.
Motörhead - Rock 'n' Roll (1987)
This is another one of my personal favorites. This song perfectly embodies what a lifelong love affair with rock'n'roll feels like
Blue Suede Shoes - Carl Perkins as covered by Lemmy & The Upsetters with Mick Green (1990)
Another track from the annals of rock'n'roll, this is Lemmy trying to give Elvis a run for his money!
Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down - Merle Haggard as covered by Throw Rag with Lemmy (2005)
I come back to this track again and again. Country goes pure rock'n'roll with a dose of Lemmy to make it sweeter still. 
Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers - ZZ Top as covered by Motörhead (1980)
ZZ Top traded vocals on their original, and Lemmy and former Motörhead guitarist Fast Eddie Clarke trade vocals on this cover.
Motörhead - I'm So Bad (Baby I Don't Care) (1991)
What Motörhead always did best was anthems for people who, as Lemmy sings in Rock 'n' Roll, are "Marching to a different drum, I hear a different song". 
Motörhead - Born to Raise Hell (1993)
We know how to do it and we do it real well! Another singalong favorite for all the bad boys and girls.
Motörhead - Killed by Death (1984)
One of a couple of originals released on the compilation album No Remorse, this song has one of the greatest titles in metal ever. 
Motörhead - R.A.M.O.N.E.S. (1991)
Written as a tribute to their friends, and occasionally performed by the Ramones themselves, this song is a testament to Lemmy's identification with the punk scene.
Stand By Your Man - cover of Tammy Wynette by Lemmy and Wendy O. Williams of the Plasmatics (1982)
Only Wendy's incredible screech can properly offset Lemmy's snarl, and this song is a duet made in punk rock heaven.
Thirsty and Miserable - cover of Black Flag with Lemmy on vocals (2002)
This was a track on Rise Above: 24 Black Flag Songs to Benefit the West Memphis Three, and featured many rock'n'roll luminaries. Lemmy's willingness to jump into these kinds of cover compilations has left us with an incredible collection of non-Motörhead Lemmy tracks.
Headgirl - Please Don't Touch (Motörhead/Girlschool collaboration) (1980)
The St. Valentine's Massacre EP, featuring Motörhead and Girlschool both collaborating and covering each other's songs, is one of my favorite releases of all time, and this song is perfection.
Probot - Shake Your Blood (2004)
Probot was a Dave Grohl pet project one-off releaseas, featuring many different vocalists, including Lemmy. This track was the single and there's no question why. Blistering drumwork and Lemmy's menacing vocals make this one of my favorite songs.
Motörhead - No Class (1979)
This is another Motörhead anthem, taken from their Overkill album. It shares a similar riff to ZZ Top's Tush, which I am totally okay with, as I love that song too.
Motörhead - Bomber (1979)
Incredibly, Motörhead released two records this year, and this is the eponymous track from Bomber. It was also covered by Girlschool for the St. Valentine's Day Massacre EP.
Motörhead - The Chase is Better Than The Catch (1980)
Another personal favorite, I like to think of this song as a life philosophy as well.
Doro - Alone Again (2000)
Lemmy was an accomplished songwriter, and wrote songs for other artists including Ozzy Osbourne and Lita Ford. He wrote this track for Doro, and then duetted with her on it, showcasing his more introspective side.
Stand By Me - cover of Ben E. King with LemmyDave Lombardo of Slayer and Baron (2009)
Another cover of a classic track, this time the Ben E. King standard for the soundtrack skateboarding film, 
Motörhead - Whorehouse Blues (2004)
One of the few times that Lemmy has written a softer song for Motörhead, this song is one of my hands down all time favorites. The country side of Lemmy
