Everything Louder than Everyone Else is the sixth live album by the band Motörhead, recorded 21 May 1998, and released 9 March 1999, on Steamhammer, their first live album with the label, but fourth album release.

Recording[edit]

Vocalist/bassist Lemmy recalled making this during the Snake Bite Love tour, having decided to include an entire show on the release, which they hadn't done before because of the limitations of vinyl.[3] The title refers to a remark repeated by Ian Gillan of Deep Purple on their Made in Japan live album:

"..could we have everything louder than everything else?.."

Recorded at The Docks nightclub in Hamburg, Germany, on 21 May 1998, Everything Louder than Everyone Else is produced 'undubbed' in a two disc format. It was first released as a digipak version, later followed by a slimline 2CD jewel-case run. Lemmy says he chose to record it in Hamburg, Germany because:

"..the Germans have been such loyal fans of ours. They always rescued our ass when we were going down for the third time. They stuck with us, and we knew Hamburg would be a great audience. It's like Liverpool — a seafaring town, and you know where you are with a sailor!.." [3]

Release[edit]

In Joel McIver's 2011 book Overkill: The Untold Story of Motörhead, Lemmy is quoted as saying he believes the album is better than the classic 1981 live LP No Sleep 'til Hammersmith, stating:

"..it's a double, for starters, and this is a better band, I think. We function better as a trio. We get more money, for one thing — ha ha! — but you have to do better as a three-piece because people can hear the holes more easily.."

Critical reception[edit]

At the start of the concert Lemmy announces, "We are Motörhead; and we’re gonna kick your ass." Critics picked this theme up, with some advocating that those thinking of buying this record first will be disappointed with studio versions of the songs after listening to the show.[4] Andy Hinds of AllMusic writes:

"..mixed unbelievably loud and in-your-face, it captures Motörhead's overwhelming live power in all its toothy glory and reflects a veteran band working at the peak of its skill.."
