Description

The Rolling Stones: Beggars Banquet
1/2/05: In conjunction with their reunion tour, Mötley Crüe released a double-disc anthology collection titled Red, White & Crüe that chronicles the band's musical career and includes three new songs. Also included was a cover version of the Mick Jagger & Keith Richards-penned Street Fighting Man from this Rolling Stones’ 1968 Beggars Banquet album. Sick Love Song winds out the Crüe's 37-track set. more >>

David Bowie: Young Americans
21/5/02: Tommy Lee's first solo album under his own name Never A Dull Moment includes a cover version of the David Bowie classic Fame, that was co-penned by former Beatle John Lennon and released on Bowie's Young Americans album in 1975. The album displays Bowie's move away from his Ziggy Stardust persona towards soulful R&B influences. more >>

The Tubes: The Tubes
11/7/00: Mötley Crüe released their New Tattoo album with one cover track, the tongue in cheek cover of White Punks On Dope. The original version was the last track on the 1975 debut from The Tubes and became a minor hit and a radio staple for the band. The Tubes were said to be arch satirists of popular culture whose outrageous performance-art concepts frequently eclipsed their elusive musical identity. Check out their debut album and the original version of White Punks On Dope. more >>

Gilbert O'Sullivan: The Best Of
20/6/00: Nikki Sixx's side project 58 released their Diet For A New America album containing a re-work of the 1972 Gilbert O'Sullivan hit Alone Again (Naturally). The original appeared on the Irish singer-songwriter's debut album titled Himself. The chart topping song is included of this collection of Gilbert's hits. more >>

Chicago: Chicago II
8/8/95: The Japanese release of Vince Neil’s Carved In Stone album includes a cover of the Chicago hit 25 Or 6 To 4. The original version is included on their Chicago II album that was released in January 1970. Chicago is second only to the Beach Boys as the most successful American rock band of all time. The group formed officially on February 15, 1967 in the city from which it eventually took its name. more >>

Iggy Pop: Lust For Life
8/8/95: The second solo album from Vince Neil titled Carved In Stone is released. It was recorded at NRG Studios in North Hollywood with The Dust Brothers producing. Vince recorded a cover of Lust For Life from Iggy Pop’s 1977 album Suck On This that was originally intended for inclusion on the Showgirls movie soundtrack, but unfortunately didn't get selected in the final listing. In the middle of 1997 the Iggy Pop and David Bowie penned tune is included on Mötley's Afraid single. Vince actually played bass on his version. The original version of the song can be heard on this release from Iggy Pop of the same name. more >>

Ramones: All The Stuff 2
27/4/93: Vince Neil’s first solo album Exposed debuted at #1 in Japan. The Japanese version included an additional bonus track, a cover of The Ramones' I Wanna Be Sedated from their fourth album released in June 1978 titled Road To Ruin. This awesome collection of hit songs contains the original version of I Wanna Be Sedated. more >>

Sweet: Live At The Marquee
27/4/93: Vince Neil’s first solo album Exposed was released on the Warner Brothers label and entered the US Billboard charts at #13. The album included a cover of Sweet's Set Me Free from their 1974 smash album Sweet Fanny Adams. Here's is The Sweet's Live At The Marquee album on which you can hear the original version being performed live. more >>

Sex Pistols: Never Mind The Bollocks
19/10/91: Decade Of Decadence was released by Mötley Crüe and entered the Billboard charts at #2. The disc celebrates Mötley’s 10th Anniversary with remastered versions of Crüe classics and three new songs recorded at A&M Studios. It ends with the Sex Pistols cover, Anarchy In The U.K. which sports the first take of Vince's vocal recording. Nikki Sixx obtained the lyrics from Pistols guitarist, Steve Jones, who likes the Crüe's version. The song is included as preference over a new track Punched In The Teeth By Love that later made it's way onto their New Tattoo album. The song was played live two months earlier for the first time at a warm up show before their second Donington Monsters Of Rock Festival appearance at the Marquee in London, under the name The Foreskins. The raw angry English punk rock of the Sex Pistols can be heard in all its glory here, including the said original track. more >>

Tommy Bolin: Teaser
12/89: Mötley Crüe contribute their Vancouver recorded cover of ex-Deep Purple member Tommy Bolin’s song Teaser to the Make A Difference Foundation Stairway To Heaven/ Highway To Hell compilation album. The late Bolin, who was also once a member of The James Gang, wrote the song back in 1975. The track was included as part of Mötley's 1991's Decade Of Decadence compilation before being made available again on the 1999 Supersonic & Demonic Relics release. At that time, it is released to radio as a single mid year to fuel the band's Maximum Rock Tour. more >>

Elvis Presley: All Time Greatest Hits
14/5/87: Mötley's Girls, Girls, Girls album ships platinum and debuts at #5, the highest debuting album since Stevie Wonder’s Hotter Than July opened at #4 in 1980. The final track on the album is a live version of Elvis Presley's Jailhouse Rock which was recorded at Long Beach Arena, California on the previous Theatre Of Pain US tour. David Lee Roth from Van Halen also joined the Crüe on stage at the Troubadour late in 1981 to perform a rendition of this song that was often played live by Mötley. Here is the King's original version for you on a super compilation album of many hits. more >>

Brownsville Station: Smokin' In The Boys Room - The Best Of
21/6/85: The Theatre Of Pain album is released by Mötley Crüe and includes a cover of the Detroit band Brownsville Station’s song called Smokin’ In The Boys Room that went to # 3 on the charts for them back in 1973. The band used to play it just for sound checks and jams, and Vince used to play it in his previous band Rockandi. Producer Tom Werman loved it and suggested it be recorded. This cover was chosen ahead of Mississippi Queen by Mountain. It was released three days later as the album’s first single which became the band’s first Top 40 single. The Crüe were joined onstage in New Haven, Connecticut USA, by former Brownsville Station singer and songwriter Michael 'Cub' Koda for a jam on guitar and vocals to the tune on the Theatre Of Pain tour. When Cub died in the early hours on 1/7/00 from complications from kidney dialysis, his father said he made more money from Mötley Crüe's version of the song than he did off his original. Hear the original on this collection of Brownsville Station hits that also includes their version of Jailhouse Rock. more >>

The Beatles: The Beatles
26/9/83: Mötley Crüe released their Shout At The Devil album with a cover of Helter Skelter; a track written by Beatles Paul McCartney and John Lennon that was released on their highly acclaimed self-titled album on 22/11/1968. The original album is also known as The White Album due to its plain cover. Mötley's version is also released as a picture disc late in 1984. During the Shout At The Devil tour in Europe, members of Iron Maiden once handcuffed Vince Neil to the stage so he couldn’t sing and chanted Alka Seltzer into the PA during the chorus performance of Helter Skelter. Check out the original version on this album, as well as countless other classic tracks. more >>

Raspberries: Capitol Collectors Series
When Mötley Crüe first began in April 1981, their live shows often had Tonight from The Raspberries' 1973 album Side Three in their set list. When the Crüe re-released the first four albums of their catalogue as a limited edition with digitally remastered tracks on 1/6/99, Too Fast For Love contained a number of unreleased songs including the Eric Carmen penned Tonight. As it was released, The Raspberries had recently reformed after 25 years and were about to commence a summer reunion tour. The original version of the song can be heard on this great collection of their hits.  more >>
