Motörhead are offering something special for their serious and/or rabid fans. It's called the Motör-Bag, and it's packed with cool Motörhead stuff that can't be found anywhere else. Inside a Motörhead messenger bag are two double vinyl LPs of unreleased Motörhead performances (in their entirety), recorded in New York and Manchester. There's also a laminate pass and a piece of the "The Wörld Is Yours" 2010/2011 stage backdrop, each one mounted and numbered.

If you were one of those that cried foul over "Stay Frosty" not being quite heavy enough for your tastes, then check out the below clip of another new track, "China Town." So far, this is easily the heaviest thing we've heard from A Different Kind of Truth, bordering on straight-ahead metal.
