Motorhead’s Ace of Spades 40th Anniversary celebration releases have taken the world by storm once more, establishing this landmark album as being of eternal importance to music culture.

With a centerpiece deluxe edition box-set, comprising the original album, two previously unreleased live albums from the Ace Up Your Sleeve tour, a DVD compilation, 40-page book, poker dice, tour program and other treasures, Ace of Spades has landed on the US NACC charts at number one, crashed the German charts at number ten (the same position it hit on initial release in 1980), number four in Sweden, and stormed into the U.K. rock and metal chart at number four, while in the U.S. sales charts, it has hit the top 100.

Motorhead's 'Ace of Spades' 40th Anniversary Release Lands Like A Mean Machine Album Chart

Sirius XM held a special Motorhead celebration, with WWE super-star Triple H hosting a show which included the likes of Slash and Duff from Guns N’ Roses, Ozzy Osbourne and of course Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee explaining why Ace of Spades remains one of the greatest rock albums of all-time.

The box-set, deluxe box-set, two-CD edition and three-LP editions are still available in very limited quantities at certain retailers and outlets, and reinforcements are being manufactured to hopefully arrive and meet the demand in late January 2021.
