Motorhead shared the previously unreleased track, “Greedy Bastards.” The song is set to appear on the upcoming reissue, Bad Magic: Seriously Bad Magic, arriving via Silver Lining Music on February 24.

2015’s Bad Magic marked Motörhead’s 23rd and final album. Founding member, frontman and bassist Lemmy Kilmister passed away in December 2015 just months after the record arrived in August of that year.

The Motörhead camp detailed the reissue, Bad Magic: Seriously Bad Magic, back in November and shared another previously unreleased cut, “Bullet In Your Brain.” That song joins the new arrival, “Greedy Bastards,” as the two previously unheard cuts included on the reissue. The song gets going with some spoken word from Lemmy, who takes aim at politicians on the track.

“𝐘𝐨𝐮’𝐯𝐞 𝐧𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐬𝐞𝐞𝐧 𝐚 𝐩𝐨𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐧 𝐰𝐡𝐨’𝐬 𝐤𝐞𝐩𝐭 𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐦𝐢𝐬𝐞 𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐧𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐬𝐚𝐰 𝐚 𝐩𝐨𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐧 𝐰𝐡𝐨 𝐰𝐚𝐬𝐧’𝐭 𝐚 𝐥𝐢𝐚𝐫… 𝐍𝐨𝐭 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐧𝐬 𝐈𝐭’𝐬 𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐛𝐮𝐥𝐥𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐭 𝐦𝐚𝐧, 𝐢𝐭’𝐬 𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐥 𝐓𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐰𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐭𝐨 𝐝𝐨 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐬𝐚𝐲 𝐛𝐞𝐜𝐚𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐢𝐫 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐝 𝐢𝐬 𝐛𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐠𝐮𝐲… 𝐈𝐭’𝐬 𝐧𝐨𝐭!

“Another beauty from the Bad Magic sessions” Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell said, “with Lem’s lyrics hitting our times bang on the head.”

“Greedy Bastards” arrived with an animated video created by Natalia Jonderko Śmiechowicz. Watch below:
