Mötley Crüe


IF there’s one thing you can say about Mötley Crüe, is that their band name is a total pain in the arse to type on a computer, if you want to do it correctly.

Of course, there’s more to Mötley Crüe than that they’re a hilarious hot-mess too.

It goes without saying that not everyone likes their music. However, as court jesters of rock ‘n’ roll, you can’t help but feel pleased they’re around.

Set for release in 2015, Lee said the film’s script read-through was “probably the most fucking insanely surrealistic experience I’ve ever sat through probably two hours and change of literally watching people act and play through this two-hour plus movie of 30 years of your life. I was just like, ‘What the fuck?!
