The Hollywood Vampires — the supergroup currently comprised of Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper, and a rotating cast of high-profile musicians, including Joe Perry — performed at the Grammys Monday night to pay tribute to the late rock legend Ian Fraser “Lemmy” Kilmister.

In addition to honoring Kilmister’s famed group Motörhead with a high-octane rendition of “Ace of Spades,” the Hollywood Vampires also debuted its new song “As Bad As I Am.”

Kilmister died in late December from cancer at the age of 70. The Grammys tribute to him follows emotional remembrances from the likes of Dave Grohl, Ozzy Osbourne, Kirk Hammett, and more.

The Hollywood Vampires is a revival of a celebrity drinking club founded by Cooper in the 1970s that included people like John Lennon, Joe Walsh, and Marc Bolan. The fresh incarnation of the group released a self-titled album in September 2015 that included guest spots from Slash, Joe Perry, Paul McCartney, Perry Farrell, and others.
