MTLEY CRE's NIKKI SIXX Says GODSMACK Is 'Headlining Letter Openings'

MTLEY CRE bassist Nikki Sixx has once again commented on the reports that GODSMACK's "Cryin' Like A Bitch" single was written as a slam on Sixx after the two bands apparently clashed during the Cre Fest 2 tour.

In a posting on his Twitter profile, Sixx responded to a question from a fan in which Nikki was asked, "What is GODSMACK's problem with the CRE?"

"THE SINGER IS UPSET THERE [sic] HEADLINING LETTER OPENINGS," Sixx replied. "I GOT NO PROBLEM WITH THAT.HAHHHA"

Back in May, Sixx had the following to say regarding GODSMACK frontman Sully Erna's apparent feud with Nikki over the events of the Cre Fest 2 tour, "Every person from road crew, fans and even all the bands on the tour (including [Sully's] band) was so happy, but [Erna] just seems to be crying like a bitch," Sixx replied. "Funny, even his manager told me he's an asshole... Maybe the problem is just in HIS head... I got no problem with him."

GODSMACK frontman Sully Erna admitted in a webisode for the band's fifth studio album, "The Oracle", that "Cryin' Like A Bitch" was inspired by events of Cre Fest 2, on which GODSMACK was billed below headliners MTLEY CRE. Sully told Artisan News Service at the time, "There's definitely been some rock-star garbage on this tour that we just have never seen in our career . . . this was the first time that I felt like, 'You know what?! If there's gonna be some people that are gonna treat other people a certain way, then I'm gonna go out there every night and . . . make sure that we make you look old and fat, and go home with a nice big fat paycheck."

Samples of some of the lyrics on "Cryin' Like A Bitch" include lines like: "Strut on by like a king/Telling everybody they know nothing/Long lived what you thought you were/Time ain't on your side anymore"

"Cryin' Like A Bitch" lyrics:

Strut on by like a king
Telling everybody they know nothing
Long lived what you thought you were
Time ain't on your side anymore

And so you tell me I can't take my chances
But I've told you one too many times
And you were cryin' like a bitch

I'm tougher than nails, I can promise you that
Step outta line and you'll get bitch-slapped back
And you can run your little mouth all day
But the hand of god just smacked you back into yesterday

And so you tell me I can't take my chances
But I've told you one too many times
And you were cryin' like a bitch
And you wonder why no one can stand you
There's no denying you were cryin' like a bitch

Blinded by your sacred faded past times, only time is your enemy
Granted a second chance to prove that your arrogance is
Stronger than you'll ever be it's stronger than you can be [/End of lyrics]
