Legendary German hard rockers Scorpions recently released a new single, “Hammersmith,” a bonus track from the U.K. edition of the band’s Rock Believer album.
The song is not just an anthem to the iconic music venue Hammersmith, but is also a contemporary manifesto, showing just how much enthusiasm they still have for hard rock, the roots of their fame and original metal.
The Who, Queen, AC/DC, Motörhead, Metallica and Scorpions are among the artists who have performed at the venue.
“The song takes us back to a time when we played in the smallest clubs, just dreaming about being able to perform in the Temple of Rock, the Hammersmith Odeon,” Scorpions singer Klaus Meine says.
“Rocks like hell!” he sums up about the tune, which is mixed with harmonic riffs and aggressive drumming.
Scorpions founder/guitarist Rudolf Schenker, drummer Mikkey Dee and Magnus Ax composed the track.
