Sixx AM. is a hard rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 2007 by Nikki Sixx, DJ Ashba, and James Michael, and is the side project of Sixx, who is also the bass guitarist for Mötley Crüe.
* AscendedFanboy: DJ Ashba, sort of. He started taking his guitar playing seriously after attending a MotleyCrue concert. He's gone on to being co-songwriter and co-producer for Mötley Crüe's album "Saints Of Los Angeles", as well as playing in the same band as Nikki Sixx, the bass guitarist from Mötley Crüe.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Compared to Nikki's main-project, MotleyCrue, Sixx AM has ''very'' few outright cheerful songs. The closest you get is "Sure Feels Right" from "This ''is'' Gonna Hurt".
** The second half of "The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack" can be considered to be this too. The first half isn't all that dark. Then comes "Dead Man's Ballet", and the album gets progressively darker from there. It could only be darker, had they saved "Accidents Can Happen" for between "Girl With Golden Eyes" and "Courtesy Call".
* OdeToSobriety: Nearly the entirety of The Heroin Diaries
