Which avatar is best?

OK --- which of these potential avatars is the best one?

I'd sell my everlasting soul for that belt buckle, but as far as avatars go, the one on the right is pretty wonderful.

Bronze one. It's classic, it's a good rendering, it "is" Motorhead.

Thanks for calling, we have a winner.

My first exposure to Motorhead was on an episode of the 80s Britcom, "Young Ones".

I like the episode with the South African vampire that had "The Damned" performing.

The price was actually almost as steep --- $25 at a Motorhead show in Nottingham, UK. But I figured I wouldn't get another chance.

I'll switch-up the image every so often, they're all good in my book.

Far and away, still one of the best live bands I've ever seen.

I like it that HHH, the pro wrestler, asked them to write him some entrance music when he was world champion.

That would make a good sign for a bar/club or even a chop shop.
