Motörhead – Ace of Spades

Ace of Spades is the fourth studio album by the band Motörhead, released 8 November 1980. It peaked at No. 4 on the UK Albums Chart and reached Gold status by March 1981. It was preceded by the release of the title track as a single on 27 October, which peaked in the UK Singles Chart at No. 15 in early November.

Like the song “Shoot You in the Back,” the Ace of Spades artwork employs a classic wild west motif. It was the second of the band’s studio albums to feature a depiction of them on the front cover, dressed as cowboys.
