Purely for replacing Nikki Sixx when he died with an imposter (or did they? or...did they?!) in a Dynasty/Dallas-stylee I'm voting NOT CRAP.

NOT CRAP.

Okay. So Motley Crue is the mid-80's bantam-metal equivalent to Bright Eyes. Mindless, lowest common denominator headbangin' fodder designed to make teenage girls moist. This band is crap. I can't even give them an ironic thumbs up.

I have friends who try to tell me that "Too Fast For Love" is a "really cool, raw, rock'n'roll record." Bullshit. it sucks. That record is some of the wimpiest, limp-dick, underproduced, weak-guitar-tone-havin' CRAP I've ever heard. Seriously. It makes Warrant look like Cannibal Corpse.

"Shout At The Devil" is halfway decent...the same way that KISS's best records are halfway-decent...at best.

Nikki Sixx doesn't even like "Theater of Pain" or "Girls Girls Girls." That's because those records are CRAP!

"Dr. Feelgood" is a third-decent, the same way that "Shout At The Devil" is half-decent...i.e. it's STILL CRAP.

Their last few records have all been crap.

Motley Crue is fucking CRAP. CRAP CRAP CRAP. Seriously. Pile on some irony, and they're STILL CRAP.

Go listen to some real rock. Motley Crue is merely a stones throw away from Def Leppard, dawg.


Wow. So much vitriol. Did I really write this?

Oh yeah, I did. Because Motley Crue are CRAP.

I remember there were polls about these bands for a brief period of time before someone had to go and delete them.
I also remember the existence of said polls to be your fault.

NOT CRAP!!!

Guitar tone on TOO FAST FOR LOVE sounds like a cross between mid-years Don Cab and backing track for 9th season of ALL MY CHILDREN.

Rawk for the ages.

Absolute fucking garbage. Four cretins who should be lured behind a dumpster with the promise of cheap drugs and then summarily executed.

I have about ten of their songs on my iPod.

Between the years of 1983-1988 I was an unapologetic Motley Crue fan. See?

Image

I would constantly get into heated debates defending Motley Crue. I remember once playing "God Bless the Children of the Beast" for my dad and his friends. My dad tried to tell me that Mick Mars was playing an electric piano. I got into a huge argument with him and his buddy that lasted for a good part of the night.

The hat that I'm wearing in the picture? That hat was on my head 24/7, with the exception of school, (private schools don't cotton much to means of expression).

The first time T-bone's drum-riser went ninety degrees? I learned that drum solo.

Without drugs or alcohol I would listen to "On With the Show" over and over again with tears rising.

My friends all believed something was wrong with me.

It was my destiny to meet them. I had previosuly met Tommy twice via working for a friend at the National Association of Music Merchants conventions. Oh, I met everyone: Bruce Kulick, Eric Carr, Vinnie Vincent, Eddie Van Halen, Billy Sheehan, Steve Vai, etc., etc. Winning backstage passes and an autographed Dr. Feelgood Kramer guitar from a radio contest I entered (WVVX 103.1 FM), was the peak of my fandom. It was all downhill from there.

Right now I can look back and laugh heartily at my foolishness. I mean, seriously, I was over-the-top ridiculous. I wouldn't change any of it if I could, though. It was so much fun, and, to this day, I still believe that Too Fast For Love on Leathur Records is one of the rawest sounding glam-rock records ever. Shout at the Devil is also a fine album. The guitar riff on "Too Young to Fall in Love" is awesome.

My vote? For all of my dedication, devotion, and passion for what ultimately turned-out to be a silly band, I cannot vote crap, chumps. Too much of my formative years were spent trying to find/finding something worthwhile in their music. I was a teenager! What do you expect?

The Leathur Too Fast For Love sounds a lot better than the Elektra version.

Those skanky-looking chicks knew how to rock.

NOT CRAP.

Indeed. Aside from the Sex Pistols, they're my favorite band who can't actually play.

Just so you know, ironic and hair metal really don't belong in the same sentence as one another.

Would you believe I have never heard a Motley Crue song?

Because it's true. Never, not once, have I heard a Motley Crue song.

It should be clear by now that I have a considerable soft spot for dumb rock music. There was a time when this good will extended to the first Motley Crue record. Before this foolhardy magnanimity evaporated virtually overnight (at around the same time I stopped smoking marijuana), I memorialized it by having my mother sew a Motley Crue patch over the hole where I'd split my jeans. At various points throughout this "lost weekend," I would lean back, spread my legs, and say, "Hey, Steve...." When he turned around, I'd point at my crotch and tell him to "shout at the devil."

You'll have to ask Steve whether or not this qualified as crap, but the band Motley Crue is undoubtedly crap.

I was listening to a local classic rock station the other day, and they played "Girls Girls Girls". When the song was over, the DJ was talking about the spoken part in the middle, where Vince & Tommy are (audibly) oggling strippers.

The DJ said that he and another DJ were gonna start a Motley Crue tribute band called "What Vince, Where?!?"

It would escalate from clever to genius if they spent part of their set re-contextualizing their own name by playing songs off the self-titled record that John Corabi sung on.
