MÖTLEY CRÜE “The Dirt” Soundtrack

If you haven’t heard about it yet Mötley Crüe has a film coming out tomorrow (March 22, 2019) called The Dirt based on the New York Times best-selling 2001 autobiography by Mötley Crüe and Neil Strauss. To accompany the film the band have put together an 18 track soundtrack mastered by GRAMMY winner, Dave Donnelly features a collection of Mötley Crüe classics that accompany the film.

The album includes 14 fan singalong and chart-busters such as “Dr. Feelgood” and the sexy “Girls, Girls, Girls” and “Kickstart My Heart” along with other biggies, “Same ‘Ol Situation (S.O.S.),” “Shout At The Devil” and the mega-ballad, “Home Sweet Home”.

The Dirt Soundtrack includes four brand new songs the first of which was released two weeks ago, “The Dirt (Est. 1981) (feat. Machine Gun Kelly)”.

The three other songs sit at the end of the album are titled: “Ride With The Devil,” “Crash And Burn” and a cover of Madonna’s, “Like A Virgin.”

“Ride With The Devil” and “Crash And Burn” have the modern Crue sounds with basic rhythm and sexy cliches… which is never a bad thing with a Motley Crue song!

“Like A Virgin”, I listened to half and put it in the bin with all the other unnecessary covers. Take it or leave it; probably why it’s the last track.

The Netflix Film apparently goes to detail the glam rock stable: sex, drugs, rock ‘n roll with the perils of fame and the price of excess. Director Jeff Tremaine (JACKASS co-creator) covers how Nikki Sixx (Douglas Booth), Mick Mars (Iwan Rheon), Tommy Lee (Colson Baker aka Machine Gun Kelly), and Vince Neil (Daniel Webber) took Mötley Crüe from the Sunset Strip to the world stage.

Nikki Sixx says, “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.”

“The Dirt” is available for pre-order now through Mötley Records and Eleven Seven Music. The pre-order offer an instant download of the single. Get it here: http://smarturl.it/MC.TheDirt/jbhifi
