Motörhead’s ‘Ace Of Spades’ set to enter Top 10 following death of frontman Lemmy

The classic track is currently at Number Nine in the midweeks

Motörhead’s classic 1980 single ‘Ace Of Spades’ is set to enter the Top 10 for the first time following the death of frontman Lemmy Kilmister.

Lemmy passed away on December 28 following a short battle with cancer.

Since then, fans have grouped together to try and get the single to Number One as a tribute to the star, setting up a Facebook page dedicated to the cause. The page currently has nearly 29,000 likes.


Now, the Official Charts Company has revealed that ‘Ace Of Spades’ is currently sitting at Number Nine in the midweek charts. Upon its initial release, the track only reached Number 15, meaning that this could mark its highest placing to date.

The week’s final charts will be announced on Friday (January 8).

Justin Bieber is currently holding on to both the Number One and Number Two spots, with ‘Love Yourself’ and ‘Sorry’ respectively.
