Mötley Crüe was an American heavy metal band formed in Los Angeles, California, on January 17, 1981. The group was founded by bassist Nikki Sixx, drummer Tommy Lee, lead singer/rhythm guitarist Vince Neil and lead guitarist Mick Mars. The members of the band have often been noted for their hedonistic lifestyles and the persona they maintained. Following its hard rock and heavy metal origins, with the third album Theatre of Pain (1985) the band joined the first wave of glam metal.

=== Too Fast for Love (1981) ===
No, noYou better turn me loose,You better set me free.Because I'm hot, young, running free,A little bit better than I used to be.
Live WireLiving on a jet,Making love to someone else's dreams.Say it again.She puts her leg up.Well, calls it good luck.Do you know what I mean?Do you remember?Well I remember.
Too Fast for Love
=== Shout at the Devil (1983) ===
He's the wolf screaming lonely in the night,He's the blood stain on the stage.He's the tear in your eye,Been tempted by his lie.
Shout at the DevilNow listen upShe's razor sharp.If she don't get her way,Well, she'll tear you apart.Now she's a cool, cool blackAnd she moves like a cat.If you don't get her game,You might not make it back.
Looks That KillYou say our loveIs like dynamite.Open your eyes,It's like fire and ice.Well you're killing me,Your love's a guillotine.Why don't you just set me free?
Too Young to Fall in Love
=== Theatre of Pain (1985) ===
You know that I've seenToo many romantic dreams,Up in lights,Falling off the silver screen.My heart's like an open bookFor the whole world to read.Sometimes nothingKeeps me togetherAt the seams.
Home Sweet Home
=== Girls, Girls, Girls (1987) ===
Kneel down you sinners to streetwise religion,Greed's been crowned the new king.Hollywood dream teens, yesterday's trash queensSave the blessings for the final ring, amen.
Wild SideTrick or treat, sweet to eatOn Halloween and New Years Eve.Yankee girls you just can't be beat,But they're the best when they're off their feet.
Girls, Girls, GirlsThe blade of my knifeFaced away from your heart.Those last few nightsIt turned and sliced you apart.This love that I tellNow feels lonely as hellFrom this padded prison cell.
You're All I Need
=== Dr. Feelgood (1989) ===
He's the one they call Dr. Feelgood.He's the one that makes ya feel alright.He's the one they call Dr. Feelgood.
Dr. FeelgoodHe'll tell you he's the kingOf these Barrio streets,Moving up to Shangri La.Came by his wealth as a matter of luck,Says he never broke no law.Two time loser running out of juice,Time to move out quick.Heard a rumour going round,Jimmy's going down,This time it's gonna stick.
Dr. FeelgoodWhen I get highI get high on speedTop fuel funny car'sA drug for meMy heart, my heartKickstart my heartAlways got the copsComing after meCustom built bike doing 103My heart, my heartKickstart my heartKickstart my HeartWhen we started this bandAll we needed, needed was a laughYears gone by...I'd say we've kicked some assWhen I'm enragedOr hittin' the stageAdrenaline rushingThrough my veinsAnd I'd say we're still kickin' ass.
Kickstart My HeartOoo, ahh, kickstart my heartHope it never stopsAnd to think, we did all of this...To rock
Kickstart my HeartWithout you in my lifeI'd slowly wilt and die.But with you by my side,You're the reason I'm alive.But with you in my life,You're the reason I'm alive.
Without YouAll, all around the world,Girls will be girls.It's the same old, same old situation.It's the same old, same old ball and chain.
Same Ol' SituationSeasons must change,Separate paths, separate ways.If we blame it on anything,Let's blame it on the rain.I knew it all alongI'd have to write this song.Too young to fall in love,Guess we knew it all along.
Don't Go Away Mad
=== Decade of Decadence 81-91 (1991) ===
Scream and shout,Rip that mother out.You just gotta say "hey"Primal scream and shout.
=== Mötley Crüe (1994) ===
Everybody wants a piece of the action,Everybody wants a piece of the pie.
Hooligan's HolidayOh life it's misunderstood them,So they close their eyesAnd dream of better days.Oh life it's misunderstood yeah.Life's not always fair or so they say.
=== Generation Swine (1997) ===
Do you, do you want to bleed?Do you, do you want to live in vain?
AfraidDecked out like an hourglass,Ammonia and a razor blade.Things were just okay until sheFell in love with cocaine.

=== New Tattoo (2000) ===
Bashful Betty such a bondage brat,Dressed in latex and coated in sewer rats.A serpent's tongue, calculating mind,Gets top dollar for the hip shake divine.Look to the sky,There's no rain in sight.Better wear your rubber boysIf Betty is your date tonight.
Hell on High Heels, written by Mick Mars, Vince Neil, and Nikki SixxTonight I saw your face up in the starsStumbled here to paint you on my arm.There's something that I need to say to you,So I wrote this song.Because you belongRight here on my new tattoo.
New Tattoo, written by Mick Mars, James Michael, and Nikki Sixx
