Motley Crue Information Continued
Motley Crue are often cited by many contemporary artists as an inspiration. Artists such as Green Day, Moby, Murderdolls and Marilyn Manson have praised them in recent years, most notably for Too Fast For Love and Shout At The Devil. They've also been parodied for their early glam rock look in music videos by a variety of artists.
Besides music, Motley Crue also set the scale for decadant rock and roll behavior. After the release of "The Dirt", the band has been known as one of the most decadant and self-destructive groups in rock music history, if not the most.
Motley Crue got their name when one of the band members walked in and called the group "a motley looking crew". Mick Mars copied the name down on paper, with the original spelling Mottley Krue.
Motley Crue's latest compilation album, Red, White & Crue, was released in February 2005. It features the band members' favorite original songs plus three new tracks, "If I Die Tomorrow", "Sick Love Song" and a cover of The Rolling Stones' classic "Street Fighting Man". The resulting tour itself took many people in the media by surprise by becoming one of the biggest in 2005, grossing $33 million and making it the 8th biggest money maker for the year. The band had to add a second leg of sixty additional dates to meet fan demand.
In 2006, Motley Crue was awarded a star of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, on occasion of their 25th anniversary. They are also touring with Aerosmith on the "Route of All Evil Tour" in the fall. The tour will see them play amphitheatres across North America over a three month period.
