"It's like connecting the dots, Start at the bottom and lick it to the top"
Mtley Cre - She Goes Down - 1989

Vince explaining how they got the dots!Back in April 1981, Mick Mars suggested the name MOTTLEY CRU to his new band mates. Nikki Sixx then changed the spelling to Motley Crue and then they finished it off by adding dots over the and giving it a militant, aggressive German feel, inspired by the Lwenbru beer they were drinking at the time. Hence MTLEY CRE was named!

The two little dots used in the name are  called umlauts and are used, particularly in the German language, to show a change in vowel sound. Below is a handy guide to using them on your computer.

When entering text using a word processor on a computer, umlauts are sometimes problematic. These characters may be entered into a document when using a Macintosh, a DOS or Windows machine by typing appropriate keys to produce the characters.

When using a Macintosh, most Western international characters have already been built into the hardware and are available under all situations. When using the IBM or compatible, the numeric equivalents of the seven characters must be typed.

Macintosh keystrokes

= Option + u, then o = Option + u, then O
= Option + u, then u = Option + u, then U

For Windows/DOS machines, be sure that the "Num Lock" on the numeric keypad is depressed before entering the keystrokes. Depress the "ALT" key while typing the numbers; when you let up on the "ALT" key, the character appears on the screen.

Windows
DOS
= [alt] + 0246 = [alt] + 0214 = [alt] + 148 = [alt] + 153
= [alt] + 0252 = [alt] + 0220 = [alt] + 129 = [alt] + 154

Some word processors permit the definition of macros which then simplify the entry of these characters. You'll need to check the documentation for your word processing application.
