Motörhead may not have invented rock & roll, but they surely were the first to so completely weaponize it – although historical accuracy demands we give an iron-clad fist bump to Australian contemporary Rose Tattoo. If any combination of leather, riffs and whiskey gets your blood pumping, you're only reading this far to see if there's a reason to come find me and punch me later. (And I said Rose Tattoo, so we should be good.) Swedish openers Graveyard add outré '70s vibes (à la Sir Lord Baltimore or Pentagram) to their old-school r-a-w-k and have a healthy appreciation for psychedelic horror legend Roky Erickson, whose fearsome howl surely inspired at least one terrifying moment on recent album Lights Out.
