Probot with Dave Grohl Lemmy and Wino

You may have noticed that Massive Metal Monday took a well deserved week off for the recent Labor Day holiday here in the United States. But we’re back this week and in keeping with the spirit of Labor Day, this week’s Massive Metal Monday honors two of the hardest working dudes in all of rock, Motorhead’s Lemmy Kilmister and Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl.

Dave Grohl, although not really known as a metal musician, has always worn his fandom of the genre on his sleeve. In 2004, he released an all-star record of metal originals under the moniker of Probot and invited a veritable who’s who of metal gods to turn in guest performances. One of the standout tracks and only video released from the album was “Shake Your Blood.” Grohl played all of the instruments on the recording save for the bass, which Lemmy provided along with penning the lyrics for the song. The video features Scott “Wino” Weinrich from The Obsessed and Saint Vitus on guitar. (Wino also appeared on the album’s only single “The Emerald Law.”) The ladies featured in the video are from the adult website Suicide Girls.

So, without further ado, here are Lemmy, Wino, and Dave Grohl with this week’s rousing Massive Metal Monday track “Shake Your Blood.”

When I was growing up in rural Indiana in the early ’80s, there was very limited access to heavy music. These were the days before MTV blew up with the whole hair metal, Headbangers Ball phenomenon. But on Sunday nights, there was a two-hour radio show that came from WOXY, just across the state line in Oxford, Ohio (home of Miami University of Ohio). It was called Massive Metal for the Masses, and I would wait all week for it to air. It was through this show that I was introduced to bands like Venom, Bathory, WASP, Michael Schenker Group, Slayer, and countless others. This Monday weekly column is my tip of the hat to that show. I call it Massive Metal Monday. Every week, I will pay tribute to defining moments by the artists that laid the groundwork for heavy metal to become the worldwide cultural bond for all of us metal heads.
