Motörhead/ Girlschool
St. Valentine's Day Massacre EP (1981)

This glorious artifact documents one of the most peculiar detours in Motörhead's uniformly pedal-to-the-metal career. Having befriended the members of all-female metal band Girlschool, Lemmy and Company decided that a friendly co-headlining single was in order. So was born the St. Valentine's Day Massacre EP, a three-track disc issued on Valentine's Day 1981 (reaching number five in the charts on February 21st), featuring each band covering a hit by the other: Girlschool crashed their way through Motörhead's "Bomber," while they, in turn, attacked the girls' "Emergency." Even more amusing, the two bands collaborated on a spirited remake of the ancient Johnny Kidd & the Pirates number "Please Don't Touch".
