Can "New Wave of British Heavy Metal" please be added as an additional genre for Motorhead? Years probably 1975-1982 (when Fast Eddie left). Find it surprising that they are one of the quintessential NWOBHM bands and yet no acknowledgement of that on MS. Thanks.

Motorhead like Judas Priest aren't NWOBHM. Both bands started way before the NWOBHM.. NWOBHM is a period in time and not a sound which lasted from 1979 (when the term was coined by Sounds magazine) till about midway Eighties.

I'll grant you the fact that Judas Priest formed way before NWOBHM started. But look at Saxon - formed in '76, Maiden - formed in '75 so not earlier at all. I know NWOBHM is a scene, not a sound but MS has it as a genre tag so I figure Motorhead should be included. No skin off my teeth if my suggestion is considered ludicrous.
