Mötley Crüe: ‘The Dirt’ Film, New Songs Released

Share This:

The Netflix film The Dirt, based on the New York Times 2001 autobiography by Mötley Crüe and Neil Strauss, was released on March 22. (In February, Mötley Crüe announced the release of The Dirt Soundtrack, with four new recordings, also available March 22 worldwide.)

One of the new recordings has the band covering Madonna’s “Like a Virgin.” (Listen to it and other new tracks below.)

The Dirt is described in a press release as “an unflinching and uncensored story about sex, drugs, rock ’n’ roll, fame and the high price of excess. Director Jeff Tremaine (Jackass co-creator) shows us just how Nikki Sixx (Douglas Booth), Mick Mars (Iwan Rheon), Tommy Lee (Colson Baker) and Vince Neil (Daniel Webber) took Mötley Crüe from the Sunset Strip to the world stage, and what it meant to become the world’s most notorious rock band.”

Vince Neil is on tour performing all the Motley Crue hits. Tickets are available here.

Mötley Crüe recorded four new songs: “The Dirt (Est. 1981) (feat. Machine Gun Kelly),” “Ride With the Devil,” “Crash and Burn” and a cover of Madonna’s “Like a Virgin.”

The 18-song soundtrack, mastered by Grammy winner Dave Donnelly, “features a collection of Mötley Crüe classics that meaningfully underscore significant moments that shape the film,” says the announcement.

The album includes “14 fan favorites and chart-topping tracks such as ‘Dr. Feelgood’ that charted at #6 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and the anthemic ‘Girls, Girls, Girls,’ which reached #2 on Billboard’s Top 200, among others. Additional hits featured are ‘Kickstart My Heart,’ ‘Same Ol’ Situation (S.O.S.),’ ‘Shout at the Devil’ and the iconic ballad, ‘Home Sweet Home’ that landed the band mainstream recognition.”
