AllMusic Review by

For the most part in rock music, when a band issues a box set you expect rarities mixed with the hits, and when they issue a double-disc set, it's primarily the hits. But the 2001 double-disc Motörhead set, Bite the Bullet, follows the box set format, as quite a few oddities are spotted alongside classics. Tops on the list of most intriguing tracks is a "rare version" of their all-time classic, "Ace of Spades," which sounds like a rough demo. Also, you'll find live renditions of such tracks as "Iron Horse" and "Motörhead," as well as quite a few classics from Ace of Spades ("Love Me Like a Reptile," "Jailbait," etc.). With so many Motörhead compilations having flooded the marketplace for decades by this point, it takes something a little extra for a new collection of Lemmy and company to stand out. And with some true rarities making their first appearance here, Bite the Bullet is one of the better "odds and hits" Motörhead collections out there.
