“Mötley Crüe” released their debut album 35 years ago

Mötley Crüe - 2005

“Cause I’m hot, young, running free…”

And they have maintained that image, word for word. “Mötley Crüe” was a Californian band, through and through. As soon as you lay your eyes on them and hear their music, you can tell that they are coming from Los Angeles. Same goes for “Guns N’ Roses”, for instance.

“Mötley Crüe” was an American heavy metal band and the most famous lineup was: Nikki Sixx (bass guitar), Tommy Lee (drums), Vince Neil (lead vocals) and Mick Mars (lead guitar). The members of the band have been notorious for their hedonistic lifestyles. So hedonistic that Nikki Sixx was pronounced clinically dead after a drug overdose.

“Mötley Crüe” had their final performance on December 31, 2015. “It was hip. It was cool. Vince cried, which I thought was really special, ’cause I had seen Vince only cry a few times. That was really nice to see that. I felt ready. I felt proud. When I walking to the stage, I was, like, ‘We did it,'” said Nikki about that show. And some ride it was – “Mötley Crüe” sold over 100 million records worldwide and they are one of the best-selling bands of all time.

But where did it all start? “Too Fast for Love” was their debut album and it was released on this day, in 1982, for Elektra Records. The album consisted of 10 songs and received mostly positive reviews. “Too Fast for Love” was also the earliest of seven “Mötley Crüe” albums in a row to become gold or platinum.

So, stick to your guns, and listen to this album if you have any love for heavy metal whatsoever.
