* ReallyGetsAround: All of the bandmembers are frequented by groupies, which has inspired their hit song, 1987's "Girls, Girls, Girls". Special focus goes on Vince Neil and Mick Mars, who became dads while still teenagers, with even more attention turned towards the band's general infidelity.

** Many of the articles written about the band around that time discussed their displaced addictions, however (see ThePornomancer below). They [[FunctionalAddict replaced their addictions]] to substances with addictions to sex, exercise, and fast vehicles.

In 1989, in light of Sixx's near-fatal overdose--at the plea of their managers--the band cancelled their tour of Europe and went into rehab (except for Mars, who cleaned up on his own). Finding sobriety and quitting drugs, the band recorded their highly successful ''Dr. Feelgood'', getting a Grammy nomination for "Kickstart My Heart" and the title track. The band's popularity declined in the wake of the 90's and the {{Grunge}} movement like it did for all bands of their kind. Neil quit/was fired (he maintains he was fired, Lee says he quit) from the band in 1992, being replaced by John Corabi, who would record their 1994 SelfTitledAlbum. They reunited in 1997 to record ''Generation Swine'', receiving lackluster sales in part thanks to bad support from their label, Elektra records, ultimately prompting the band to form their own label, Mötley records (this made them one of the few bands at the time to have total control over their own publishing, recording and back catalog).

'''''M[[HeavyMetalUmlaut ö]]tley Cr[[HeavyMetalUmlaut ü]]e''''' is a HardRock[=/=]HairMetal band formed in and popular in TheEighties by drummer Tommy Lee and bassist Nikki Sixx, joined by guitarist Mick Mars and lastly by singer Vince Neil. Like most of their contemporaries from the Glam era, they were probably more well known for their [[SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll sleazy, sordid antics]] than their music: during their first tour in Canada they were banned from Edmonton for carrying "dangerous weapons" (their stage spikes) and "indecent material" (Neil's porn) though customs, got accused of a bomb threat and threw a TV out the window of their hotel (all publicity stunts). They rose to international fame on the release of ''Shout At The Devil'', ''Theater of Pain'' and ''Girls, Girls, Girls'', receiving heavy rotation on Creator/{{MTV}} and selling millions of copies. Sixx has overdosed on heroin over a dozen times, [[OnlyMostlyDead three times near-fatal]] (the first of these in which he was [[BackFromTheDead declared dead for a minute]], inspired the song "Kickstart My Heart").
