    "Iron Fist" is a song by the heavy metal band Motörhead. It was released as a single in 1982, in 7" pressings in blue, black and translucent red vinyls.

    The title track on the single is covered with (B-side's) "Remember Me, I'm Gone", which appears on CD re-issues of the Iron Fist album. In Spain the title track was put on the B-side of "Go To Hell" and was issued with a picture sleeve of the band dressed as warriors in skull masks.[1]

    This is the last single featuring the classic Motörhead line-up of Lemmy, "Fast" Eddie Clarke and "Philthy Animal" Taylor, as Clarke left following the recording of the Stand By Your Man EP.

    On March 27, 1982, Lemmy, Eddie and Philthy were interviewed by Tommy Vance on BBC Radio 1's 'Rock On Saturday' show, "Iron Fist", "Loser", and "Speed Freak" were played.[2]

    The song was covered by the German thrash metal band Sodom on their 1987 album Persecution Mania.

    Since 2004, the symphonic metal band Therion covered "Iron Fist" song on several live shows. One of the version is released on Celebrators of Becoming box-set.
