Motorhead 

There's no longevity award in metal, but Motorhead doesn't need one.

Warts and all, the London-born trio has been cranking out blistering speed-metal (heavy on the speed ... and the metal) since 1975, longer than many of its fans have been alive.

Over the course of approximately 357 albums, including the brand-new Motorizer (Steamhammer), Lemmy and pals — ex-King Diamond drummer Mikkey D is the rookie of the group, having joined in 1991 — have gotten more mileage out of biker imagery and raw-amphetamine riffs than even they expected. Once "Killed by Death," it seems nothing can kill Motorhead now.
