As an old crue fan, I must admit that if you line all there albums up there are definitely more Crap than Non Crap, that aside though, i still like them for everything else and I still think Nikki Sixx is cool as hell. But music wise, highpoints are there with extreme lowpoints, and I mean really low ones.

But I must say NOT CRAP.

Crap. I don't care what singer was on the mic, Motley Crue is/was/always will be fucking terrible. They do get props for the cowbell, though.

Crap. I mean, being into Motorhead and Slayer is one thing, but Motley Crue? Give me a fucking break! Who's the next poll on? Trixter? Winger? Enuff Z'Nuff?

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.

Their version of "Smokin' In The Boys Room," in which they attempted to cop a Van Halen/DLR goodtimes vibe and failed oh so miserably, it makes me to laugh. Listen to them play! They cannot! They cannot play!

CRAP!

the riff in Girls, Girls, Girls, is just about as bad-ass as they come, i must say. very balls. that being said, i always pretty much hated this band as a kid. thought they were pussies. not nearly heavy enough.

my opinion of vince neil changed somewhat when i saw the entire season of surreal life all in one evening, and got to see how he functioned on that show. i was most impressed. although if the night in vegas was any indication of what his normal day-to-day is like, he'd be better off living with webster and corey feldman!

motley crue = CRAP

Listen to them play! They cannot! They cannot play!


this is true

they literally can't hack it

tommy lee is an awful drummer. just terrible. completely devoid of groove.

robert christgau, in a moment of supreme clarity, once called mick mars 'dork-fingered,' which about sums him up

the singing was jaw-droppingly bad, about 1/10th as good as david lee roth at his worst

i don't know, maybe the bass playing was ok, as junkie bass playing goes

anyway, they made wretched music and played with remarkably profound, institutional clumsiness. maybe the dumbest band of the 80s. i think they were bad, and i did not like any of their music, and i think they deserve your 'crap' vote.

probably not crap

Postby danmohr on Fri Sep 17, 2004 12:57 am

I voted NOT CRAP because I legitimately enjoy listening to their terrible records. At their best, they remind me of the exhilarating feeling of first hearing "the rawk" which only through the prism of age can I more precisely recognize as "the sludge". I think really only their absolute void of talent and slightly greater affinity for cocaine separates them from the True Sludge Masters (your Bostons, REO Speedwagons, Journeys, etc.). Being unable to actually craft songs, they played louder, faster and with more leather cod pieces but at the same time clearly burned with the same desire for planet-encompassing fame, fortune and fucking as the High Sludge Pillars. At their worst, the Crue simply remind me how spot-on Spinal Tap was.

So, NOT CRAP, for entertainment value and for having about three good tunes.

I heard "Kickstart My Heart" on the radio today and immediately thought of this fucking internet board.

I am lame.


I give me a Crap vote.

"Shout at the Devil" was their one "decent" offering for this breed of makeup and tied-hanky rawk. Not as deliciously sloppy as the Dolls or early Aerosmith, or even "Appetite for Destruction." When I was 14, NOT CRAP. Other than that, CRAP.

Recently heard a bootleg (Gothenburg, '86) out of curiosity and the guitar-playing could hardly be called same...a basic riff for a few measures and then an annoying whammy-skronk. Vince Neil cannot sing, though he sure tries in a froggish, freakish way. I would laugh at them if I walked into a bar and they were playing. And then I would hit on a fat chick.

I was looking at the "Worst Records You Own" thread, and the first sure-fire-absolutely-certain record I could think of was "Shout At The Devil". I had this record on cassette when I was 10. I liked it because there was a pentagram on it and that goofy intro was pretty scary and dangerous when I was 10.

I bought "Shout At The Devil" again when I was 19 or so. I bought it for "Looks That Kill". That is a sick tune. I like that riff. Tommy Lee actually has some shit going on.

The rest of that record (except maybe the title track on a good day) is a 10,000 acre turd festival. Nikki Sixx is hands down - hands fucking down - the worst bass player in the history of amplified musical instruments. I have heard children selecting their first bass at the local music store with better skills. The bass line during the intro of "Shout At The Devil" could not be any dumber. I am confident he never played on any subsequent Motely Crue recording. Maybe Tommy Lee didn't either, but I am not masochistic enough to perform the research necessary to come to a conclusion about that. The "Helter Skelter" cover is part of a select group of songs that make me want to fight whatever sound reproduction medium is playing it. I am getting angry just thinking about how shitty that cover is.

CRAP. The book was pretty good, though. Especially the telephone part.
