Lemmy Kilmister had been leading Motörhead for 16 years by the time "1916" was recorded in 1991. Over the years, Motörhead had experienced more than its share of personnel changes — and in fact, Kilmister was its only remaining original member. But the band's sound hadn't changed much, and time hadn't made its sledgehammer approach any less appealing. As sobering as his reflections on the horrors of World War I are on the title song, he's unapologetically amusing on "Going to Brazil", "Angel City" (an ode to the 'beautiful' party people of L.A.), and "Ramones" (which salutes the New York punk band). Whether the subject matter is humorously fun or more serious, Motörhead is as inspired as ever on "1916".

Lemmy Kilmister war schon 16 Jahre die treibende Kraft bei Motörhead als 1991 die Aufnahmen für "1916" entstanden. Über die Jahre hatte es reichlich Veränderungen unter den Bandmitgliedern gegeben - tatsächlich war Kilmister der Einzige aus der Ursprungsbesetzung. Dennoch hatte sich der Sound der Band kaum verändert, und auch der Attraktivität ihres Dampfhammer-Sounds konnten die Jahren nichts anhaben. So ernüchternd wie die Reflektionen über die Schrecken des 1. Weltkriegs im Titelsong auch sein mögen, so selbstverständlich kurzweilig und unterhaltsam sind Songs wie "Going to Brazil", "Angel City" (eine Ode an die schönen und reichen Partygänger in Los Angeles) und "Ramones" (eine Reverenz an die New Yorker Punkband). Ob das Thema nur einfach purer Spaß oder eher ernsthafter Natur ist, "1916" gehört zu den inspiriertesten Platten von Motörhead.
