Ahead of the Mötley Crüe biopic The Dirt hitting Netflix on Friday (22nd), listen to one of the songs released early from the soundtrack... no, seriously, you'll want to hear this...
Mötley Crüe have released their cover of Madonna’s 1984 hit, ‘Like A Virgin’.
The song is the second single to be released from the soundtrack for the band’s upcoming biopic, The Dirt. It was apparently Nikki Sixx's idea. According to an interview he did with Classic Rock Magazine recently, "I’m walking my dogs, it was a beautiful day, and all of a sudden this idea pops into my head. I look up as if to look to God and I start laughing. And I said, ‘That’s the worst idea ever.’ So I called Bob Rock, and he was, like, ‘Uh, I don’t think the guys are gonna go for it.’
“I demoed it up and went over to Tommy [Lee]’s house. I said, ‘I have a song to play you but I’m going to go in the bathroom and hide ‘cos I don’t want you to punch me in the face. And it starts going and Tommy gets this huge smile on his face: ‘This is so f_king wrong.” And I talked to Mick and Vince, and they were, like, ‘F_k it, let’s go.’"
Based on Mötley Crüe’s 2001 best-selling autobiography, The Dirt is an unflinching and uncensored story about sex, drugs, rock ‘n roll, fame, and the high price of excess.
Director Jeff Tremaine (JACKASS co-creator, BAD GRANDPA) shows us just how Nikki Sixx (Douglas Booth), Mick Mars (Iwan Rheon), Tommy Lee (Colson Baker), 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. Watch the trailer here.
The biopic hits Netflix on 22nd March and the full soundtrack album is released the same day.
