    "Ace of Spades" is a song by the heavy metal band Motörhead. It was released as a single on October 27, 1980 as a preview to the album Ace of Spades and autumn tour.

    In November it reached #15 in the UK Singles Chart and has since become the most famous of all of Motörhead's songs.

    For the lyrics, Lemmy said he "used gambling metaphors, mostly cards and dice - when it comes to that sort of thing, I'm more into the slot machines actually, but you can't really sing about spinning fruit, and the wheels coming down"
