80s Rock Alert: Mötley Crüe ‘Looks That Kill’

When this came out from Mötley Crüe in 1983 it was just totally badass. The song stands the test of time 30 years later. When someone is cranking Looks That Kill you know exactly what song it is, instantly. Classics do that to ya over time.

Mötley Crüe Girls Girls Girls came out a few years later and by then the band just absolutely blew the hell up. When Mötley Crüe Kickstart My Heart came out people went bonkers!

How many times you think Black Veil Brides watched this video before establishing their look?

Who is Mötley Crüe?

Mötley Crüe was an American heavy metal band formed in Los Angeles, California on January 17, 1981. The group was founded by bass guitarist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee, lead singer Vince Neil and lead guitarist Mick Mars. Mötley Crüe has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, including 25 million albums in the United States, making them one of the best-selling bands of all time.

The members of the band have often been noted for their hedonistic lifestyles and the persona they maintained. Following its hard rock and heavy metal origins, with the third album Theatre of Pain (1985) the band joined the first wave of glam metal. Their final studio album, Saints of Los Angeles, was released on June 24, 2008. Their final show took place on New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2015, and was filmed for a theatrical and Blu-ray release in 2016.
