Motley Crüe release The Dirt soundtrack


Motley Crüe have released their first song in four years - the soundtrack to their forthcoming Netflix film 'The Dirt' featuring Machine Gun Kelly (Tommy Lee in the movie).



Following on from the explosive trailer for the movie, which is based on the New York Times best-selling 2001 autobiography by Motley Crüe and Neil Strauss, the notorious rock 'n' roll hell-raisers have unleashed the song that they recorded with producer Bob Rock, which bassist Nikki Sixx says is a "reflection" of their life.


Nikki commented: "During the filming of our movie we got excited and inspired to write new music. Getting back in the studio with 'Dr. Feel Good' Bob Rock just fuelled 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.” 


The 'Girls Girls Girls' hitmakers - completed by Vince Neil and Mick Mars - have recorded four new tracks in total for the soundtrack, which also features 'Ride With The Devil', 'Crash And Burn' and a rendition of Madonna’s 'Like A Virgin'.


The film boasts an all-star cast including Douglas Booth (Nikki), Machine Gun Kelly (Tommy), Iwan Rheon (Mick), Daniel Webber (Vince), and Tony Cavalero as Ozzy Osbourne and Pete Davidson as record executive Tom Zutaut.



The Crüe are still regarded one of the most outrageous rock bands of all time.


Drummer Tommy previously admitted the mid-1980s was a "bad" time for the 'All Bad Things Must End' hitmakers because they were all "not waking up", "overdosing" and "like a bomb ready to go off".


He said he is amazed the band - who performed their last show as a part of 'The Final Tour' at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on December 31, 2015 - are living to tell the tale and survived, because he was sure "someone was going to die".


Speaking to Lizzie's Lowdown editor Lizzie Baker for BANG Showbiz before their final tour, he said: "People were not waking up, people were overdosing and people were f***king. Like a bomb ready to go off, like someone was going to die. The fact we made it through that is really amazing because we had all of the ingredients for bad and for something to go extremely f***ing bad."


The biopic is being helmed by 'Jackass' director Jeff Tremaine.


Both the film and soundtrack - which is available to pre-order here - will officially be released on March 22.
