I was very sad to hear that comedian Rik Mayall passed away last week. I loved to hate his character on The Young Ones, but later developed a serious crush on him after seeing him in Drop Dead Fred. I'm posting this clip of Motorhead doing Ace of Spades on The Young Ones as a tribute, because it's my all time favorite musical number from the show, and Rik himself leads it off and closes it (at least the way the the person who posted this YouTube clip edited it). RIP Rik. Gone way too soon.
