* HomePornMovie: In the late 1990s a sex tape featuring Tommy Lee and his then-wife PamelaAnderson was stolen from their home and sold to a pornographic video distributor, causing a huge stir in the entertainment media. The Lees sued the distributor and attempted to get the video taken off the internet, but failed. In the end, they simply got a cut of the profits.
** Similarly, Vince Neil made a sex tape in which he had a threesome with porn star Janine Lindemulder (you likely know her as the nurse on the cover of Music/{{Blink 182}}'s ''Enema of the State'') and Penthouse Pet Brandy Ledford. As with Tommy Lee's video, it was leaked and found its way to the internet.

* MadeOfIron: Every original member of the band. During the peak of their popularity they all did incredible amounts of alcohol and drugs in addition to indulging in other forms of reckless behavior. Yet they're all still alive.

* HeavyMetalUmlaut: In this case, not for the sake of metal; they were drinking Löwenbräur while they were thinking of a name (one of Mars' previous bands had a member call the group "a motley looking crew"). Vince Neil said: "We had no idea that it was a pronunciation thing. When we finally went to Germany, the crowds were chanting, “Mutley Cruh! Mutley Cruh! “ We couldn’t figure out why the fuck they were doing that."

* HandicappedBadass: Mick. His condition, ankylosing spondylitis, has wreaked havoc on his spine, causing him to lose 3 inches in height. The condition also caused one of his hips to degenerate so severely that he had replacement surgery in 2004.

'''''M[[HeavyMetalUmlaut ö]]tley Cr[[HeavyMetalUmlaut ü]]e''''' was 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").

* BikiniBar: "Girls, Girls, Girls". If the lyrics don't drive the point away, then the video surely will.
** Although in the uncensored version of the music video it's *not* a bikini bar, but an actual topless bar.
