Released on on 24 March 1979, Overkill is the second studio album by Motörhead. Kerrang! magazine listed the album at No. 46 among the ‘100 Greatest Heavy Metal Albums of All Time’. 

Overkill was an unexpected success, reaching No. 24 on the UK Albums Chart. It is considered by many to be a vast improvement over the band’s debut and the album where they laid the foundation for their classic sound. According to AllMusic: ‘Motörhead’s landmark second album, Overkill, marked a major leap forward for the band, and it remains one of their all-time best, without question. In fact, some fans consider it their single best, topping even Ace of Spades. It’s a ferocious album, for sure, perfectly showcasing Motörhead’s trademark style of no holds barred proto-thrash – a kind of punk-inflected heavy metal style that is sloppy and raw yet forceful and in your face.’

Overkill was co-produced by legendary producer Jimmy Miller, who had previously worked with Traffic and the Rolling Stones, and recorded at Roundhouse Studios and Sound Development Studios in London.
