Although not quite at the Gene Simmons/KISS level of ridiculousness, Motörhead’s Lemmy Kilminster has been known to not be shy when it comes to trying to make a buck off the reputation of the loudest band in rock and roll. And why not – it’s certainly deserved and the music industry itself is certainly no goldmine.

After filming a commercial for Kronenbourg 1664 with a pretty cool slowed down version of the classic tune Ace of Spades, and adding to the existing  Motörhead Vodka and  Motörhead Shiraz, a  Motörhead beer is being released – but you can only get it if you live in (or are visiting) Sweden. Called Bastards and brewed by Krönleins, the lager costs SEK19.90 – that’s £1.81, €2.35, or USD $2.87 and is only available through the chain ‘Systembolaget’.

The beer is described thusly:

“For all beer drinkers and hell raisers, fans of loud and fast rock and roll, no matter if you have no class or if you are a damaged case, this mean machine lager is fuel for any head banging opportunity.”

And that, my friends, is something to raise a glass to.
