MÖTLEY CRÜE 'Best-Of' 'In The Studio' Program Available For Streaming

North American syndicated rock radio show and web site "In The Studio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands" rings in the New Year with a career-spanning look at the bad boys of rock, MÖTLEY CRÜE.

The '80s would not have been, well, the '80s without the outlandish antics and brazen musical style of L.A. rockers MÖTLEY CRÜE. By the spring of 1983, the CRÜE were living in sharp contrast to what was mainstream Reagan America. Songs like "Shout At The Devil" and "Looks That Kill" had nothing in common with the charts then, but 1985's "Theatre Of Pain" album would transform MÖTLEY CRÜE into rock and roll chart-toppers driven by the success of their BROWNSVILLE STATION cover "Smokin' In The Boys' Room" and the monster power ballad "Home Sweet Home".

In an interview with "In The Studio" host Redbeard, MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx remembers how the latter non-traditional CRÜE song would set the bar for hard rock bands to follow.

"Bands didn't have a power ballad and MTV as a vehicle to have a hit," he said. "That just wasn't the way it was. After 'Home Sweet Home', every band had the one ballad that came as their second or third single...

"I think the reason we did it was because it was so anti-MÖTLEY CRÜE and it was funny, because it threw us into the mainstream. Trust me, none of us had the foresight to see that."

MÖTLEY CRÜE has gone on to sell tens of millions of albums over its 30-plus-year career.

"In The Studio" shares, in this week's show, the musical highlights and some of the unbelievable lowlights behind one of rock's most notorious hard rock bands.
