This is Motörhead's first "proper" studio album. They had previously recorded the "On Parole" album for United Artists Records, which was intended for a 1976 release date, but the record company refused to release it. For this album, the band chose to record "On Parole" again in almost its entirety, only "Fools" and "Leaving Here" weren't re-recorded at these sessions. In addition two new self-penned compositions were added in "White Line Fever" and "Keep Us on the Road", as well as a cover of "Train Kept A-Rollin'".

Re-released again by Ace Records in 2001 with the Roadrunner Records tracklist from 1990.

Reissued again by Deadline in 2005 in a digipack with another bonus track:
14. Leaving Here (Live) [3:12]

Reissued as Beer Drinkers in 1982 with the Beer Drinkers EP tracks included, a different track order and without "Iron Horse", "The Watcher" and "Train Kept a Rollin'").
