I don't mind them dropping Ace Of Spades or Overkill (but not both) so long as they replace either song with the song Motorhead.
I really quite dislike all three albums (I have all of them). Every album with Phil (Campbell) is better. Even Overnight Sensation. After Another Perfect Day they decided to stop writing the same song over and over again and try few different things. Yes, things like We Are Motorhead are carbon copies of Ace of Spades, but they stopped making twelve carbon copies per album, and that to me suggests genuine evolution. Those three 'classic' albums are boring as fuck.
OK, yes, some of those tracks were the first ones, and the others are copies, but that doesn't mean you have to play the same ones over and over.
I say drop them all. And everyone who doesn't like it isn't a proper Motorhead fan and can fuck off. Go listen to your record-label-dictated 'Best of' CD.
