Overkill è un singolo del 1979 dei Motorhead, estratto dall’omonimo album e promosso con un’insolita esibizione al programma tv Top Of The Pops. E’ un classico ai concerti della band, uno dei brani più richiesti e spesso eseguito in versione estesa.
Nel 1995, in occasione del 50esimo compleanno di Lemmy, i Metallica coverizzarono il pezzo assieme a “Damage Case”, “Stone Dead Forever” e “Too Late Too Late” pubblicandoli come B-side del singolo Hero Of The Day in suo onore.

Lyrics:
Verse 1: Only way to feel the noise is when it's good and loud,
So good you can't believe it screaming with the crowd

Pre Chorus: Don't sweat it, get it back to you

Chorus: Overkill,  Overkill, Overkill

Verse 2: On your feet you feel the beat, it goes strait to your spine,
Shake your head you must be dead if it don't make you fly,

Pre Chorus: Don't sweat it, get it back to you

Chorus: Overkill, Overkill, Overkill 

Verse 3: Know your body's made to move, feel it in your guts
Rock 'N Roll aint worth the name if it don't make you strut,

Pre Chorus: Don't sweat it, get it back to you

Chorus: Overkill, Overkill, Overkill
