Mötley Crüe is an American heavy metal band formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1981. The group was founded by bassist Nikki Sixx, drummer Tommy Lee, lead singer Vince Neil and lead guitarist Mick Mars. Mötley Crüe has sold 100 million albums worldwide, making them one of the best-selling bands of all time.
The members of the band have often been noted for their hedonistic lifestyles and the persona they maintained. Following its hard rock and heavy metal origins, the release of their third album Theatre of Pain saw the band joining the first wave of glam metal. Mötley Crüe's last studio album, Saints of Los Angeles, was released on June 24, 2008. The band's final show took place on New Year's Eve, December 31, 2015. The concert was filmed for a theatrical and Blu-ray release in 2016.
On March 22, 2019, Mötley Crüe released new music, the first in over a decade. These songs are included on the soundtrack for their Netflix biopic "The Dirt", based on the band's New York Times best-selling autobiography.
