“Overkill” is a song by the heavy metal band Motörhead. It was released in 7” and 12” vinyl pressings in 1979. It is covered with B-side “Too Late Too Late” which appears on the CD re-issues of the Overkill album. Early copies came with a free ‘Overkill’ badge.

On March 9, 1979 the band played this song on the BBC TV Top of the Pops show, to support the release of the single. The song is a live favourite and is frequently featured in Motorhead concerts, often in an extended version.

The artwork on the sleeve was created by Joe Petagno, based on his design for the album’s cover.

“Overkill” was re-recorded by Motörhead to be a playable track in the video game Guitar Hero World Tour.

Only way to feel the noise is when it's good and loud
So good I can't believe it's screaming with the crowd
Don't sweat it, get it back to you
Don't sweat it, get it back to you
