Nobody was more badass than Motley Crue! Tommy Lee was one of the best straightforward 4/4 drummers of the time. No arguing that. Nikki was an amazing songwriter too. And Mick Mars wrote some of the best guitar riffs of the 80's. However, I have always found his guitar solos to be humdrum. Even Vince back in the 80's/early 90's could at least hold a tune. And sing the words, mostly. The best thing was that he was a terrific frontman. Amazing to watch live. So raw and energetic. He lost that in the late 90's and has never even tried to get it back, only got worse and worse until now he can't even sing a full word and relies 100% on auto-tune to stay even close to correct in terms of pitch and key.

In the mid 80's, my teen circles were deep in the mighty heavy metal and during this feast from somewhere appeared a self-made cassette tape with Theatre of Pain album by unknown band. I've made a copy and this was one of the most played cassettes in those years. I've upgraded my Crue love in the very beginning of the 90's obtaining a cassette with Dr. Feelgood album.
Next, contrary to the mainstream opinion, their album Mötley Crüe '94, featuring the new singer, impressed me very pleasantly and became one of my favorites during the hard for the music times of the mid and late 90's.

I was lucky to see them live during their 2009 tour which came around here.

Here are my top 10 by Mötley Crüe:

1. Save Our Souls (from Theatre of Pain)
2. Home Sweet Home (from Theatre of Pain)
3. Hammered (from Mötley Crüe)
4. Misunderstood (from Mötley Crüe)
5. City Boy Blues (from Theatre of Pain)
6. Primal Scream (from Primal Scream / Dancing on Glass)
7. Hooligan's Holiday (from Mötley Crüe)
8. Wild Side (from Girls, Girls, Girls)
9. Raise Your Hands to Rock (from Theatre of Pain)
10. Slice of Your Pie (from Dr. Feelgood)
