Episode 65 - A Very Motley X-Mas

2 comments

Since the world didn't come to an end last week (check out our Songs for the Apocalypse episode), we are thrilled that we can celebrate Christmas with you all!

Since the very beginning of the Decibel Geek Podcast, we've received an increasing number of requests for a Motley Crue special. So, with this being the season of giving, this week we decided to have A Very Motley X-mas.

In this episode, Chris & Aaron randomly select albums from the Crue's 30+ studio discography and spin one song they'd like to share with the listeners from each. You'll hear songs from the 1981 debut, Too Fast for Love, all the way through 2008's Saints of Los Angeles.

Also included in this episode are a couple of our famous Deep Thoughts With....segments; this week including one from Nikki Sixx and one from Tommy Lee. Thought provoking stuff, indeed.

With Motley Crue, controversy is never far away and their press headlines tend to overshadow a lot of great hard rock music. With that in mind, we made a conscious effort to stay away from all of the off-stage drama and focus squarely on the music as this is a celebration, not an expose.

We solicited some listener picks through our Decibel Geek Fan Page as well as from the die-hard Crue heads over at the Motley Shout boards. Did some of their suggestions make our list? You'll have to listen and find out.

We hope all of you Motley Crue fans enjoy this audio look back on their career.

As for the future, Nikki Sixx revealed in a Facebook response that there definitely will be a new Motley Crue record and it will be "the best one yet."

Former Motley Crue front man John Corabi has recently released an all-acoustic album entitled John Corabi Unplugged on Rat Pak Records.

The album features renditions of songs from his days with Motley as well as  his pre-Crue band The Scream and post-Crue band Union. It also includes 5 new songs and an interview. Go to www.johncorabi.com to check it out and buy it.

And if this episode inspires you to want to beef up your Motley Crue collection.....go Buy It Here!

Nice show guys. Yes, I'm a bit late, doing some catch up.



I'm not much of a Crue fan anymore. I love the first two albums, with Shout being the overall best. Danger is a great ballad from that album. And I would have picked Starry Eyes off of the debut. Great song, great album. Very rough.


The next 3 albums were okay, but I can take 'em or leave 'em. I don't really like anything since then, with the exception of the Corabi album, it's pretty good. I totally dislike Saints Of Los Angeles, sorry Aaron, I know you love it. But that's just my lowly opinion.



You interested me in the EP Quarternary, but it's kinda pricey.



I think Vince Neil is a terrible vocalist, but I think Mick Mars is totally underrated. I love his playing style. It's loose or sloppy at times, but I love it.
