The Wörld Is Yours is the twentieth album by British rock band Motörhead, released on 14 December 2010 internationally and in the United States a month later. The album was produced by Cameron Webb, and is dedicated to Ronnie James Dio, who had died of stomach cancer seven months earlier.
The album was first released on 14 December 2010. This release was part of a special edition of Future PLC's Classic Rock magazine, which featured interviews with the band and the band's history.
The standard CD release of The Wörld is Yours was released several weeks later on 17 January 2011, through Motörhead's own label, Motörhead Music, distributed by EMI Label Services. The album would subsequently be released in North America on 8 February 2011
Two special editions of the album were also announced. The first featured the album bundled with a bonus live DVD featuring a performance from the 2006 Wacken Open Air festival in Germany and an exclusive t-shirt. The second version featured those contents along with a signed copy of the album on silver vinyl.
The band embarked on a world tour to promote the album. This included dates in the UK starting on 8 November 2010, a 27 date headlining tour of North America from January to March 2011 and a 4 date Australian tour in late March.
In addition, a single, "Get Back In Line" was released to promote the album. Subsequently a video for the track was released on 6 December 2010.
As part of the effort to promote The Wörld is Yours in the US, the band made appearances on Conan O'Brien's late night talk show Conan, and the NBC late night show Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, playing "Get Back in Line" at both appearances.

The album has received mixed reviews, with most reviewers citing the album as very similar to most of Motörhead's past works due to the band essentially following the same formula.
Eduardo Rivadavia of Allmusic reviewed the album positively and commented that it may be remembered as Motörhead's "ultimate 'rock & roll' album." Rivadavia cited "I Know How to Die" and "Outlaw" as the best tracks from the album.
Express.co.uk summed up the album as being "every bit as noisy and scary as anything they’ve produced over their 35 years."
On the other hand, Alexis Petridis of Guardian.co.uk said of the album that those who purchase the album will not do so "in the hope of being surprised or baffled."
