12" picture disc version
"Born to Raise Hell" is a song by the British heavy metal band Motörhead. Originally written by Lemmy for the German band Skew Siskin, it plays over the opening credits of the 1994 film Airheads in which Lemmy makes a cameo appearance.
The song was released as a single in November 1994, featuring Lemmy, Ice-T and Ugly Kid Joe lead singer Whitfield Crane. The single features a radio edit, the original Bastards album version and the Dust Brothers Live and Funky Mix. A special 12" vinyl picture disc pressing was made, using the same picture as the CD single release.
This version was recorded in addition to the previous recordings of "Hellraiser" and "Hell on Earth", as a last minute job to play over the end credits of the Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth film, although it didn't appear on the film's original soundtrack album.
At 2016's Bloodstock Open Air Festival, Phil Campbell & The Bastard Sons (formerly The Phil Campbell All Starr Band) covered the track with guest vocals from Twisted Sister's Dee Snider as a tribute to Lemmy.
