Mötley Crüe Releases New Soundtrack to Accompany New Netflix Biopic

In my mind, no one rocked harder in the 80’s and 90’s than Mötley Crüe. They were the epitome of sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll. Sure you had Poison, Warrant, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, G&R, and a slew of other glam bands, but Mötley Crüe just rocked my world a little more I suppose. And, at long last, the story of Mötley Crüe will come to Netflix when the biopic “The Dirt” premieres March 22.

The band is releasing an 18-song soundtrack that will include four new songs, including a title track featuring Machine Gun Kelly, a cover of Madonna’s “Like A Virgin” and the tracks “Ride With The Devil” and “Crash And Burn.” Fan favorites on the soundtrack will include “Dr. Feelgood,” “Girls, Girls, Girls,” “Kickstart My Heart,” “Shout at The Devil” and “Home Sweet Home.”

The soundtrack will be released the day of the premiere.

According to a news release, “The Dirt” is an unflinching and uncensored story about sex, drugs, rock ‘n roll, fame and the high price of excess. Said the release: “Director Jeff Tremaine (“Jackass” co-creator) shows us just how Nikki Sixx (Douglas Booth), Mick Mars (Iwan Rheon – hello Ramsay Colton from Game of Thrones), Tommy Lee (Colson Baker a.k.a. Machine Gun Kelly) and Vince Neil (Daniel Webber) took Mötley Crüe from the Sunset Strip to the world stage, and what it meant to become the world’s most notorious rock band.”

Mötley Crüe’s members signed a pact that they would never tour again, but Sixx said this about the new songs: “During the filming of our movie we got excited and inspired to write new music. Getting back in the studio with Bob Rock just fueled the creative fires for us. To me, the music sounds like classic Mötley. The lyrics were written for the movie and are a reflection of our life.”
