New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Shore Fire Media)
SPIN Magazine's March issue highlighted the new documentary on Motorhead singer and bassist Lemmy Kilmister, "Lemmy: 49% Motherf**ker, 51% Son Of A Bitch," as a "next big rock doc." They were right: "Lemmy" hit No 1 on the Billboard music video chart today, and both the DVD and Bluray disc landed in the top 10 best selling documentaries on Amazon.com. The NYC theatrical release was also extended into its sixth straight week due to popular demand.
Fans and critics alike are devouring the DVD and Bluray extras, which stretch to a staggering 4.5 hours of bonus content. Leading the list of extras (the full list is below), is Lemmy and Metallica's full intimate backstage rehearsal and riveting performance of the Motorhead classics "Damage Case" and "Too Late Too Late"--all in 5.1 surround sound. (Only "Damage Case" appears in the film.)

Also included is 40 minutes of live Motorhead, interview outtakes, extended and deleted scenes, Lemmy's full, uncut conversations with Dave Grohl and Billy Bob Thornton, featurettes on Lemmy's longtime Motorhead bandmates Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee, a special featurette on Lemmy's 50th Birthday featuring never-before-released footage of Metallica dressed as Kilmister and performing as "The Lemmys," and much, much more.
Metalassault.com called the extras "simply amazing," adding, "If ever there was an award reserved specifically for the most comprehensive DVD of all time, this one would have been the runaway winner."
