* SmallNameBigEgo: Nikki Sixx is hardly a household name, but on his radio show "Sixx Sense" he displays a massively overinflated sense of his own fame and notability.

Since 2005, the band announced their reunion tour, has co-headlining with Music/{{Aerosmith}} in 2006 (a true {{irony}}, see below), and has run a small circuit in Europe. The group released their [[HesBack return-to-form]] album ''Saints of Los Angeles'' in 2008, for which they received a Grammy nomination for the title track. They started their personal summer tour ''Crüe Fest'' with Buckcherry, Papa Roach, Trapt and Sixx:A.M. (Sixx's side-project) opening, becoming the most successful festival of the summer. ''Crüe Fest 2'' featured Theory of a Deadman, DrowningPool, Charm City Devils and Godsmack (Godsmack singer Sully Erna appeared in the Crüe video for "White Trash Circus"). Although there are plans to turn their 2001 autobiography ''The Dirt'' into a feature film, the project has been stuck in DevelopmentHell for several years. However, in November 2013 it was announced that Jeff Tremaine (of ''Series/{{Jackass}}'' fame) has signed on to direct a film adaptation of ''The Dirt'', with plans to start shooting in June 2014.

* 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).
