My personal confessions are less about what I enjoy that would shred my credibility through a wood chipper and more about which bands I used to despise that I'd never talk shit about today. Namely, I used to really hate System of a Down, Iron Maiden, Behemoth and Chimaira. After only hearing a handful of songs from each, I decided that all were overrated before actually giving their discography a real chance.
Holy shit did I regret that later on after listening to Chimaira's self-titled album, Iron Maiden's “Powerslave”, “Zos Kia Cultus,” and the entirety of “Toxicity” (although I still maintain that “Chop Suey” has always been overrated and overplayed and I'm not a fan of the title track on “Resurrection”).
It's hard to look at yourself after talking shit about music that you were completely ignorant about. Eventually, I moved on to "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son,” “Resurrection,” and “Steal This Album” and realized that I was talking out my ass and sounded like one of those guys who calls eurodance “techno” but has never listened to speedcore or confuses hip-hop with R&B.

This week Nikki Sixx (Motley Crue, Sixx:AM) alerted his followers via Twitter to the song “Nobody Knows What It’s Like To Be Lonely”, an early (pre ‘Too Fast For Love’) Motley Crue recording. More...
At a recent solo show, Vince Neil (Motley Crue) had a fan removed from a show, but not before throwing a punch at him. During the concert (footage below), Vince stopped during the song, “Kick Start My Heart” and is heard shouting at the fan before lunging at him with an old-school uppercut. More...
As the holidays approach a look at some packaged DVD/CD sets, new releases on the horizon, and yes, one hard-to-buy-for Christmas recommendation. More...
The truck carrying all of the pyrotechnics equipment to the KISS/Motley Crue concert at the DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston, Michigan was involved in an accident on the highway and overturned. Nobody was hurt, and both bands have rescheduled their concert for September 6th.

"On its way to Detroit, our pyro truck was involved in an accident and flipped, spilling our gear all along the freeway.

The party is now Thursday night, September 6th. See you there!"

Steven Adler (ex-Guns N’ Roses) is back with his new band named Adler and a new single titled “The One You Hated.” The band insists that the band is about a man/woman relationship and not what we all assume: heroin. Of course, I guess it could be about Axl Rose as well, or maybe the song is about Steven from the mindset of Celebrity Rehab’s Dr. Drew. Either way you look at it, Steven has an impressive memory catalog to pull inspiration from… More...
I picture Vince Neil kicking it in his backyard with a couple of buddies (and a couple of groupies, one young, one looking somewhat weathered), sharing a joint and several Budweiser beers, when someone leans in and asks Neil, “So, what’s next?” Vince ponders the rock and roll bar, his tequila business, the tattoo shops, and the charter airline business. Vince takes a long pull from his can of Bud and his eyes open up wide. More...

Fresh off their “occupy Hard Rock” stint in Vegas, Motley Crue is back in the studio recording a new song. Vegas odds that the words “Hard Rock” are included are 2 to 1. Odds that Nikki Sixx and company will rhyme “cock” with “Hard Rock” is even money… More...
American glam metal legends Motley Crue has entered drummer Tommy Lee's Atrium Studio today to begin recording a brand new song, their first new material since the 2008 studio album, "Saints of Los Angeles." A message from bass player Nikki Sixx reads as follows:
"Mötley Crüe and the Crüeheads have pretty much taken over Vegas the last few weeks... It really feels like we're riding the positive chaos right now. We just did a huge new photo shoot, were finishing up a brand new Crüe song for summer (that will lead to an full album after), European headline shows on festivals and in arenas too, but none of this would happen without you guys. Thank you."
Last Sunday both Motley Crue and The Darkness were featured in Super Bowl ads. They aren’t the first from their genre to sell out, or allow the semi-truck full of cash back up into their driveway, nor will they be the last. Over the past few years a lot of rockers from the eighties have partnered with Madison Avenue to create brief whore-like relationships. This week a look at the new Super Bowl commercials, and a few blasts from the past commercials: More...

News spread fast regarding Motley Crue becoming the first hard rock band to take up residency in Las Vegas. It was announced that starting in February the band will be playing nightly shows at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. In light of this semi-groundbreaking news a look (IMO) of the top 25 Crue songs to date. Note that although personal opinion was weighted heavily, I also took into account popularity, videos, etc… More...

The band will be performing a test run of twelve shows at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Casino between Feb 3rd through the 19th.

What better place to spend 11/11/11 than Atlantic City? Okay, maybe Las Vegas, Miami, etc… Anyway, we ended up in A.C. to test the gambling gods on the roulette table and have some fun. Last minute (a week prior) Motley Crue singer, Vince Neil, scheduled two solo shows for the night. This was never part of the original plan, but you know…when in Vegas (I mean Atlantic City): Go to the Vince Neil show. More...
30 years ago the bands Anthrax, Metallica, Motley Crue, Pantera, Queensryche, and Slayer were formed. It was also the year many important hard rock/heavy metal albums were released, laying the groundwork for the eighties. Here’s a look back at ten of these classic albums in no particular order. Same as the “1986 M/F/K” edition there is a twist as Marry/Fuck/Kill rules apply. It’s as simple as it sounds. M (Marry) is a song you want to “save” and listen to forever, F (Fuck) is the song you get one more listen to and that is it, and K (Kill) is the song you want to go away and never be heard from again.
