The world of rock 'n' roll just hasn't been the same since the death of Lemmy. The legendary Motörhead singer and bassist was a metal icon for more than 40 years, and we still can't believe he's gone. Thankfully, there have been plenty of homages and tributes to Mr. Kilmister in the meantime to help keep his legacy alive and well.

One of the places we continue to see the rock god is on the silver screen. Despite dying more than a year ago, Lemmy filmed scenes for the upcoming movie Sunset Society. The film by Phoebe Dollar has been in the works for some time, and it's set to open in the spring of 2018. Clips from one of Lemmy's scenes have been featured in the latest music video from Jyrki 69, "Bloodlust." It's a dark, synth-driven rock track that features plenty of sneak peeks from the movie along with cameos from Ron Jeremy, Dizzy Reed from Guns N' Roses, and loads of blood, of course. The band has described the feel of the video as if the cult-classic vampire film The Lost Boys was moved to the Sunset Strip.

And Lemmy continues to live on in more than just the movies. The legendary rocker has also been spotted in multiple video games. The band has gotten in the habit of licensing out its songs and likeness to a number of genres ranging from hack-and-slash adventures to casual casino games. Motörhead has been featured in its own slot reel included among the most popular slot games found on the internet where fans can rock out to some of Lemmy's biggest hits while they play. The game is a speed metal-themed slot reel featuring the band's members, their iconic logo, and some of their best songs as another fun way to connect with casual fans. For more hardcore gamers there's also a Motörhead expansion for the popular Victor Vran action series, which is now available for the PS4.

Of course, the main way Lemmy is kept alive is through his music, and fans will be in for a treat with a new record on the way. That's right, the debut solo album from Lemmy Kilmister is scheduled for release later this year. During its more than 40-year career, Motörhead put out 23 albums, 10 live records, 12 compilations, and five EPs. It's hard to believe that with all that output there was never a solo record from Lemmy himself, but for fans it's better late than never. The record has reportedly been in the works since 2003, and it features tracks recorded with Dave Grohl (of the Foo Fighters) and punk rock legends The Damned.

Even though Lemmy might be gone, the "Ace of Spades" singer will never be forgotten. It's nice to know that some things never really die, and when it comes to rock 'n' roll, Motörhead isn't going anywhere any time soon. Lemmy will rock on forever in our hearts, and it looks like he'll be on our record players and online for quite some time, too!

Just when we thought Carly Rae Jepsen would give us some time to recover from her well-received banger, Cut To The Feeling, the pop diva has recently performed a majestic set with the 60-piece Toronto Symphony Orchestra.

The Canadian singer brought an elegant twist to songs like I Really Like You and Call Me Maybe, as well as her latest hits, Boy Problems, Emotions, and Let’s Get Lost, turning the songs into trance-like film scores.

It’s not everyday that you get to see a pop singer dance along to peppy hits with an orchestra, accompanied by supportive fans who sang along to every song, but Carly did it ever so flawlessly.

There’s really no stopping Carly when it comes to surprising us fans with sensational endeavors, huh?

Remember this?

That was Singapore-born singer Natalie Ong WOW-ING the judges at her X Factor Australia audition. Even though her journey on the talent competition was cut short after the first live show that did not stop her from pursuing her dream. She recently released her first ever-single Get Gold and it made us feel like proud parents!

In this Instagram post, Natalie spoke about how the song came about. In collaboration with Josh Wei (who has worked alongside other local acts like Gentle Bones and Linying), they pitched the song to the National Youth Council and all together it was produced.

Get Gold depicts Natalie’s journey from her X Factor Australia days till today, she has fixated her mind on pursuing her dream and nothing will get in her way. Through the song, she also hopes to inspire fellow youths to chase their dreams no matter what.

 

We’re excited to hear what the future holds for you, Natalie! All the best!
