Rock band Motörhead have gone on record saying that a new box set entitled Complete Early Years should NOT be purchased by anyone, even super hardcore fans. The reason? It costs too much. Like, $600 too much. The company that put out the box set has the rights to early recordings and is putting out a 15-disc box set in a (admittedly awesome) custom skull box with light up red eyes.
“Unfortunately greed once again rears its yapping head,” says frontman Lemmy Kilmister. “I would advise against it even for the most rabid completists!”
Check below for more.
Now, I looked around a bit and the website Zavvi has it for £246.95, which equals just under $400. Still, if we broke that down, if each disc were $20, it would still be $300. So where did that other $100 come from? No custom box is worth that in these situations! They usually use cheap plastic, bad wiring, flaky paint, etc… Add in that there is not a single new track and you realize that it’s not worth it at all.
I have to give kudos to Motörhead here. They could’ve kept their mouth shut and not given the box set any publicity, which would’ve been a negative reaction in its own way. But no, they chose to stand up for the fans and call bullshit. Right on guys. Right on.
