* 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.

** As the legend goes, Stephen Tyler of Aerosmith saw Vince Neil from behind at a party and immediately assumed he was a woman. And even after seeing Vince from the front, it took Tyler a minute to realize that Vince was actually a man.

* AesopAmnesia: A RealLife example. You'd think nearly dying from a heroin overdose would convince one to quit doing heroin. However, according to at least one account, Nikki decided to celebrate his revival by discharging himself from the hospital that night, going home and... doing more heroin. He went to rehab with the rest of the band shortly after.

* 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.

* PowerBallad: Several of them, but the most famous one by far is "Home Sweet Home." During the peak of the song's popularity MTV was receiving so many requests to play the music video that they enacted a rule that it could only be played once per hour.

* 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.
