Motley Crue should definitely be in there. The Carnival of Sins tour rocked!

When the world, especially in L.A., was bombarded with hair metal bands it was a difficult task to distinguish one from the other,however, Motley Crue did it. This has to say something about this band. They were very influential in the hair metal genre, the most recognizable, and still the most listened to from all of them.

Posted by hellspawn007 on Saturday, 09.2.06 @ 16:01pm


Not even close.

Posted by A-Killa on Monday, 10.23.06 @ 09:39am


They are the best hair metal band of their time and the rest are imitators. However, like KISS they are viewed as a sideshow band. A circus that is not to be taken seriously and their past, critical disapproval and lack of substance will probably cost them a spot in the Hall of Fame. I mean if you can't induct KISS, you can't induct Motley Crue.

Posted by Exilewilliams on Sunday, 10.29.06 @ 10:56am


Motley Crue before Kiss, Judas Priest, or Iron Maiden? Doesn't make any damn sense to me.

Posted by Denny on Wednesday, 11.8.06 @ 20:57pm


Can't say I'm a big Motley Crue fan. They might make it in some day, due to their sheer popularity. It won't be on their first nomination though, because they, along with most glam metal bands, were hated too much by snotty critics.

Posted by Tim on Thursday, 11.16.06 @ 17:47pm


They definitely deserve it

Posted by Scott on Saturday, 12.9.06 @ 19:47pm


Metal is a form of rock n roll, while rap is not. I think they should let the following bands in together when GNR becomes eligible: KISS, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Def Leppard, Guns N Roses...oh and you gotta throw in Deep Purple too theyve been left out for way too long...This ceremony would have the MILLIONS of fans out there satisfied with Hall, rather than hating it. R&R HOF voters if you read this, do us all a favor and induct them in together!! Just do it all in one ceremony and finally these annoying debates will end..Whether you liked metal or not we can all agree that these were all highly influential/successful bands who deserve a spot in the Hall, bottom line!!

Posted by metal is rock on Saturday, 01.6.07 @ 03:07am


ok after further review..GNR is not eligible til 2011 so in 09 they should put in all the previously mentioned bands minus GNR and ADD Bon Jovi and RHCP!! GNR will have to wait til 2011 and be the last metal band to go in...by themselves which is fitting since no one really likes Axl

Posted by metal is rock on Saturday, 01.6.07 @ 03:16am


I feel bands like Motley Crue and KISS should be in because I mean they were innovators of a lot of things. If it wasn't for KISS, concerts would be boring. If it wasn't for Motley Crue we'd have disco crap and we wouldn't have some good music. I mean they belong in the RRHOF. First ballot..doesn't matter because it won't happen. But please, for KISS and Motley Crue fans alike..they have to put them in before people from the bands begin to pass away. Because I don't wanna see Motley Crue get inducted without Mick Mars there to see it happen..it's just not right.

Posted by Ryan on Monday, 01.8.07 @ 09:45am


Your an idiot if you don't think Motley Crue should get inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They are the first glam band to come out of L.A. They have sold millions of records worldwide. They deserve everything good that they get.

Posted by Marc on Friday, 03.16.07 @ 20:06pm


i think motley crue should defentally be let in they were a very famous band in the 80's and just made a huge comeback. and they were the first glam band in the 80's out of la. and they wrote the first power ballad (home sweet home).

Posted by MP Grant on Saturday, 03.17.07 @ 20:32pm


If this was all about how many records bands sell then I'd say sure, but it seems better reserved for pioneers or rock and roll, so I'd say hell no.

Posted by Eric on Saturday, 03.24.07 @ 09:52am


love it or hate it, hair metal was a huge part of rock's music history. motley crue was one of the best bands of that era. it's a no brainer that they should be in the hof. alot of bands from that era deserve more credit than people give them. i also know there was crap bands that copied these same bands. that was what brought down the genre in the end,(with a little help from nirvana as well). it was never a critics music, & this shouldn't be a critics hof. it should be about the impact on music history, when an artist gets in the hof.

Posted by thomas johnson on Monday, 04.9.07 @ 01:53am


well, i think thet they should definately be in simply because they are MOTLEY CRUE. They changed the face of popular music for the better part of a decade and have the sex, drugs, etc to go along with a ton of great songs. Read "The Dirt." It will change you.

Posted by covenbass on Wednesday, 04.18.07 @ 17:10pm


Motley Crue is my favorite band ever, so I think they should get in. But bias aside, I think they should because they have influenced so many bands nowadays.

Posted by Logan on Friday, 05.18.07 @ 19:54pm


motley crue=hell yea!!

Posted by jaskaran on Saturday, 05.19.07 @ 12:43pm


Since when did this became the Pornographic Hall of Fame.
Motley Crue are better off making porn movies rather than their so called boring and below mediocre music.

Posted by Casper on Tuesday, 05.22.07 @ 11:24am


How could we NOT induct motley? between tommy's EXCELLENT drumming (best drummer in history of rock, my opinion), nikki's killer bass playing and songwriting (best songwriter in history of rock, also opinion), mick's creative guitar-ing, and vince's... memorable voice, they made one of the most influential and brilliant bands of their time. Yes, there are other bands that deserve the induction as well- but lets face it, between the debachury (sp?) and other... things (pornos, drugs, ect.)... they put metal in the news. I knew the legacy of motley crue far before i heard their music- which was totally not what i expected, but i love it regardless. So do they deserve it? Um.. HELL YES!

Posted by jessica on Wednesday, 05.23.07 @ 19:39pm


The only thing that is worthy in the crue is Mick Mars.The other three are just a bunch of over rated asses.

Tommy is more interested in porn movies,getting involved in fights,harassing his own wife which landed his sorry ass in jail.

Nikki Sixx is probably the WORST songwriter ever.

Bunch of cheesy songs,odes to the "red light district" and pornography.
He uses Simple Plan's left out lyric and modifies it a bit to make it their new single.

Vince Neil is used to LIP SYNCING and he still does. What a Legendary singer.

You think guys like Clapton respect these "musicians".

These fuckers had the guts to pick on Metallica who are far better musicians than these cheesy posers.
Motley Crue is more like Motley Who?

If they get in the hall then Aerosmith,REM,u2,Springsteen and guys like them should just bail out cause Motley's an embarrassment.

Posted by Nathan on Sunday, 05.27.07 @ 22:11pm


Cheesy,anything but music,last mediocre studio album in 2000,releasing way too many compilations.
Yes Motley Crue should get in.I'm being sarcastic

Posted by Jordan on Tuesday, 05.29.07 @ 07:54am


Motley Crue invented hair metal , with bands like Poison, Ratt, and Winger ripping off their image and sound. You can't tell me they didn't leave a mark that others didn't follow

Induct them.

Posted by EPN on Friday, 06.15.07 @ 00:08am


All of the so called Hair Metal bands where greatly influenced by VAN HALEN. One of this years inductees. That's the reason why a lot of them will not go in the Hall!!! Especially Bon Jovi.

Posted by Joe-Skee on Friday, 06.15.07 @ 10:46am


Motley Crue Should Get Into The Hall Of Fame And Twisted Sister. Motley Was First From L.A. Twisted Sister Was First From New York Every other Hair Band Rips Off These Two. Metallica Should Definatly Get In They Where The Best Damn Thing To Come Out Of The 80's Along With Megadeth Anthrax And Slayer They Where The Big Four And They Invented Thrash Metal And Started The Term Extrem Metal. When Motley Crue Gets In They Should Also Induct John Corabi And Leave Vince Neil Out I Don't Care What Anyone Thinks Motley Crue's Best Album Was Their Self Titled Album John Took The Crue To A New Level I Think He Should Have Been Their Singer To Start With. But Motley Crue Has Latly Had To Many Compilation Album's After Generation Swine Tommy Left For All The Wrong Reasons Both Of His Solo Album's Sucked Ass They Wher Boring and Went Nowhere While Recording Generation Swine They Should Have Kept John And Never Looked Back On Vince. But They Should Get Into The Hall Any Way. Their First Five Album's kicked Ass Minus Vince Neil.

They're the definition of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. I say yes.

"They're the definition of sex, drugs, and rock and roll."

Are you just that backward that you've never heard of the Rolling Stones? i really cant think up any other possible reason for thinking that

Posted by liam on Sunday, 09.30.07 @ 13:06pm


Hell yes, they should be inducted!!! Who else lived the rock and roll lifestyle better than Motley Fucking Crue??? Tommy Lee needs to get his head out of his ass and beg their forgiveness, but other than that, they are an amazing group of guys who make amazing music. Nikki is by far one of the greatest songwriters ever. Even seemingly simple songs like Wild Side and You're all I Need tell their own stories if one actually bothers to listen closely to the lyrics. These four guys have created a legacy that will never be forgotten. Anyone who so much as considers letting the Beasie Boys and whoever else they named into the HOF before the Crue should be shot! Rock the fuck on!!!

Hey Casper - be like a ghost and disappear. Your arrogant, no nothing comments only show the world your ignorance when it comes to music.

Posted by Dameon on Monday, 11.5.07 @ 14:29pm


Dameon, arguing against Patti Smith or calling the "grunge genre" a five year movement can only lower your own credibility. Frankly, if you had a wider knowledge of the rock world, you wouldn't be wasting your time arguing for these hacks.

Also, forgive my original post in this thread as it's grammatically unsightly. However, I still wholeheartedly support the sentiment within it. ;)

Posted by Casper on Tuesday, 11.6.07 @ 14:31pm


I will repeat here that my comment regarding the "5 years" of Grunge had more to do with its lasting power in the public eye more than the actual scene. I know that bands continue this "Genre" of music. I apologize for such a loose term. But I also said that I never really bought into all these categories that people have attached to different eras of RnR. Nirvana and company made excellent Rock and Roll. I thought it got a bit depressing at times, but that is my personal taste and that certainly should have no bearing on whether those bands should be inducted into the Hall or not. FYI - I did enjoy it and I do believe they deserve all the acolades they receive over time. Trust me, my knowledge of RnR is as wide as it gets which is why I can appreciate what the Crue did and then go put on a Guided by Voices CD and when that one is finished, listen to Buddy Holly or Hendrix. Music is about entertainment and self expression. If you don't like raunchy, crude music like the Crue; then that is fine. But to state that someone who does enjoy that music is any less knowledgeable than you when it comes to music is completely assinine and elitist. And if there is one thing that RnR is not supposed to be about, that is elitism. You seem rather knowledgeable, but don't think for a moment that your tastes represent anything other than your taste. As for Ms. Smith, I will stand by my statement. She may have expressed some sentiment of those who lived on the lower East Side of Manhattan, but she was definitely not all that. But again, it is my personal opinion and that had no bearing on her induction.

"thank god for motley crue "

Posted by hollywood sleaze on Wednesday, 01.9.08 @ 22:06pm


Motley Crue To Me personally are One of the Best bands Ever to walk the earth (Personally speaking)I know there not as or Even close to important and influancal As let's say The Beatles Or The Stones Or w/e, But Are Hundread's of Thousands, perhaps millions, Of Crue Heads Out there that most of Would Choose Motley Crue Over them or any one else Any and ever day, if you really Dig deep into them you'll see them for thier Awsome talent and How amazing they really are, I agree that most hair metal bands completly sucked ass but Crue were differnt, they were around before the whole sence even Existed, As nearly ever Rock/metal band would chosse to Rip off and Ruin over the next TEN years, with a few exceptions, They belong in The hall cause all that and Their one of a few bands that Fans Are Passionate and Extremly Devoted Too, "#1 or #100 on the charts, Crue Fans are Still Crue fans" Fun,Extrame,Origanal,On the Edge, Risk Takers, Motley Crue Is a God Send in my eye.


p.s. Let's all remember tho, how many heavy metal musicians really Care If thier honered by fat cats , Thier always gonna makie the music that they and millions of others love, no matter what ppl say about em, and thank god for that...

Posted by shawn on Sunday, 01.13.08 @ 09:32am


i think the biggest problems for the hair metal bands getting in is that they still left so many bands out of the pioneer stage of rock and roll, like heart,journey,boston. It might take some time.

Posted by Mike on Tuesday, 03.11.08 @ 03:28am


Despite the hair band comments, And even the the Axl comments. If there wasn't a Motley Crue there wouldn't even be such attitude loose in the music business. Motley Crue paved that walk way. Many still walk it, bands of today even. Don't believe me? Take the time to ask some of the bands, or do a little homework. Bands like, Mudvayne,
Type 0' negative, Lordi, Wednesday 13, formally from The Murderdolls, I could go on.
Motley Crue has survived life and death, Sure the stones have, and even Aerosmith. But Motley Crue Did it/does it, With a Middle finger. Notice the does? That's the key word here, they still do. No band deserves this more then Motley Crue. Love them or hate them, you've gota' respect them.

Cruehead till death..

Motley Crue....WOW!! Honestly where would rock music be today without them? I am afraid to think about it. They were hands down instrumental in bringing the 80's alive. One of the most important reasons why Motley Crue should be inducted in the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame is because they are STILL making music. They are still creative and productive in the music industry!
MOTLEY CRUE ROCKS LIKE N0 OTHER~

Although I respect your opinion (not saying whether I agree or not), I think there were a lot of other bands in the 80s's in many different genre's, including "Hard Rock" that helped form the decade. The Crue had their place, there is no denying that. But if you look at the decade as a whole, you will see a lot of other excellent bands. That being said, enjoy the music you like.

I have a feeling that the Crue will never be inducted. There are many bands who influenced the Crue and have yet to be inducted. They would need to come first.

Posted by Dameon on Tuesday, 03.11.08 @ 11:50am


hell yeah, the CRUE deserve to be in the hall!!! they had an impact with music, pop culture and pushing social boundries...and when people said they were all washed up, the dirt came out and was a best seller...people love MOTLEY!!! this band is the music to many fans lives...including mine!!!

Posted by nick on Tuesday, 03.11.08 @ 12:32pm


Motley Crue was one of the most original and influential bands of the 1980s. They deserve to be inducted.

Posted by Larry on Tuesday, 03.11.08 @ 12:56pm


"Motley Crue was one of the most original and influential bands of the 1980s."

Not even close. They are one of the most generic grous ever, and what little influence they had has definitely dried up with the decade.

Posted by Liam on Tuesday, 03.11.08 @ 12:57pm


Yes Motley SHOULD be in R&R Hall of Fame.Through out the entire 80's,record after record went higher and higher on charts,and in the 90's Dr.
Feelgood was released at the #1 position.My point is,that they constantly got better.Record sales aren't the only reason.Go to ANY Motley show today,and set back,see how many people are there,and how people really enjoy the show.In other words Motley is one of the most entertaining shows that you will ever see.
Plain and simple...Motley Deserves the R&R Hall of Fame

Posted by Marty on Tuesday, 03.11.08 @ 13:56pm


crue SUCKS!!
they do NOT deserve to be in there. their songs suck. they are all about girls, drugs, and sex.
they are a HAIR band. all they care about is money and girls. the singer can't sing worth of shit. he sings like he's getting run over. what LEAD singer misses half of the lyrics?? that dosen't add up. the bass player sucks.
this band is crap.

Posted by sexxyjenn on Tuesday, 03.11.08 @ 17:45pm


Its the ROCK AND ROLL hall of Fame, and who is more rock and roll than Motley. They changed their sound, image and even logo with every album, just to stay a step ahead of the copycats. How many of the bands in the Hall can you say Rocked the music industry, Motley surely did that.If they and other bands from the "Hair Band era" don't get in they should remove the word "Rock" from the title.

Posted by Greedy on Tuesday, 03.11.08 @ 18:55pm


"If they and other bands from the "Hair Band era" don't get in they should remove the word "Rock" from the title."-Greedy

They won't...Rolling Stone magazine wasn't real crazy about that era and they will all be clumped together and deemed "unworthy" by the powers-that-be in the HoF. There's a lot of holes in that induction process, and to fix it, they would have to CARE!!!

Hey, sexxyjenn, talk to me babe.

Posted by Metalsmith on Wednesday, 03.12.08 @ 13:13pm


Motley Crue is the prime definition of Rock N Roll. They lived the Rock N Roll lifestyle more than any other band ever in history! They also made sure to talk about the way they lived in their songs that they wrote. How can you induct rap artists and not Motley Crue? Might as well not even call this the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame if Motley is never inducted. The way they lived should get them in on its own, and the songs they wrote should be the icing on the cake.

Motley Crue will be inducted, I guarantee that.

Posted by Steve on Wednesday, 03.12.08 @ 15:11pm


Absolutely. They represent rock n roll and have sold the albums and have paid their dues for nearly 30 years. Don't confuse Motley with many 80's hair bands. That is not what they're about and their music is why they're still very relevant and successful.

Motley Cruedeserve to be in the Hall of Fame.
The only Hard Rock band that was born in the 80s and are still alive on world tours.
There is no other 80s hard rock band with sold out shows in 25,000 people arenas around the world, from Tokyo to Mexico City, Europe and Canada.

All the bands that wanted to be like Motley Crue are dead. All those other bands can't even sell out a 200 people club.

Motley Crue are still there now recording a new album and with legions of fans around the planet.
They definitely put another level to rock n' roll...

Posted by Eddie Mars on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 11:54am


"All the bands that wanted to be like Motley Crue are dead. All those other bands can't even sell out a 200 people club."

1) That'll be because they're shit
2) Sales don't mean anything

"They definitely put another level to rock n' roll..."

No they did not.

Posted by Liam on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 12:28pm


Eddie is right about one thing. Motley Crue were a great band, one of the best of their era, they made good music and definitely deserve to be in the Hall of Fame. But I think the point about being the only major band left from the 80s is somewhat incorrect. I believe you'll find that Van Halen, Whitesnake, Def Leppard, Poison and Guns N' Roses are still headlining 1,000+-seat arenas and going strong on the strength of their 80s material.

Posted by Metalsmith on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 13:05pm


"they made good music and definitely deserve to be in the Hall of Fame."

No they didn't and no they don't. Simply being 'good' in someone's opinion isn't nearly enough to get you in.

Posted by Liam on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 13:13pm


"Simply being 'good' in someone's opinion isn't nearly enough to get you in."

Nor is being 'shit' in someone else's opinion enough to keep them out.

Motley Crue had an innovative live show that was among the best of the era.

Posted by Axl on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 13:16pm


Fine, they made brilliant, amazing, transcendant music that defined an entire generation of rock and roll children. Are you happy now? I thought I could keep you off my back if I just understated my point as if it were just my opinion. But apparently you just can't stop yourself from gainsaying anything I happen to bring up just for the sake of making yourself feel like a big man.

Posted by Metalsmith on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 13:17pm


"Motley Crue had an innovative live show"

No, fail.

Posted by Liam on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 13:20pm


What a compelling argument.

Posted by Metalsmith on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 13:25pm


Care to describe their live shows? The brevity of your answers tells me you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.

Posted by Axl on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 13:27pm


Ditto.

Posted by Metalsmith on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 13:30pm


No, actually, the way the sentence read, it could easily be interpreted that you believe that making good music is enough to get you in:

"they made good music and definitely deserve to be in the Hall of Fame."

Don't try and wriggle out of it. Even you can see it. Even you.

Posted by Liam on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 13:34pm


"Care to describe their live shows?"

No, not really, because I've never seen any, nor would I want to watch this pack of bloated, sluggish, ego-maniacal, drugg-addled "musicians" perform live. I honestly wouldn't have given a damn had that f*ck-up bassist had died.

Do you even know what "innovative" means?

Posted by Liam on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 13:37pm


Whoops, sorry, Liam. Looks like you're going to have to decide which of us you're addressing. Maybe you should get William to help you, just to make it even.

Posted by Metalsmith on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 13:43pm


Wow, Liam, now that you mention it, I have no idea what that word means.

It wouldn't hurt to educate yourself on the subject at hand before you make yourself look even more foolish (which is hardly possible at this point).

Posted by Axl on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 13:44pm

You just described pretty much every band that's in the Hall of Fame and still active (Stones, The Who, etc, etc).

"I think my intellect far outdoes both of yours."

No, fail.

Posted by Axl on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 13:49pm


No, axl, I'm just one that believes you need to back up your points before they can be taken seriously at all.

Well, go on, inform exactly how they innovated. Or was that not sarcasm?

Oh yeah, and by "specimen at hand", I think you mean "generic '80s hair that totally rips of '70s glam and hard rock". Maybe.

Posted by Liam on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 13:50pm


"You just described pretty much every band that's in the Hall of Fame and still active (Stones, The Who, etc, etc)." - that c*nt-ass front man with Guns N'Roses (aka Guns N' Let's create a legacy out of one good album and endless crap to follow)

No actually I just describe Motely Crue.

Posted by Liam on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 13:53pm


The innovation surrounded Tommy Lee's drum solos.

It's not at the level of plugging a guitar into an amp for the first time, but really, what else is?

But what Lee did had never been done before. Irrefutable.

Posted by Axl on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 14:11pm


"But what Lee did had never been done before. Irrefutable."-Axl

I guess specifying exactly what it was might spoil the surprise.

Posted by William on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 14:29pm


Actually, William, it kind of would ruin the surprise. You have to understand in the pre-internet days you went to a show and you didn't know what was going to happen. So when things like this go on, it blows your mind (well, to an impressionable teenager anyway).

Posted by Axl on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 14:36pm


My point was that your argument was more or less all subtext. When presenting a claim, it's best to use specifics and cite examples, not simply say "it was." How you managed to incorrectly infer my age from that is beyond me.

Posted by William on Wednesday, 03.19.08 @ 16:58pm


The innovation surrounded Tommy Lee's drum solos. -Axl

I happen to be a fan of Tommy's ability, but I am interested in what innovation he brought to the live show. He had great solos, we have seen that before from hundreds of drummers. He certainly was the driving beat to the music because Niki is not the best of bassists, but we have seen that before as well. And please don't say it was the lift and spin. Spinning in a cage suspended above the stage while doing the solo is not new. I suggest you check out Carl Palmer. He did it back in the early 70's.

There aint much point debating whether Motley crue is better than sabbath, deep purple, and...god forbid, somebody said U2??? The fact is you can be an armchair critic all you like but these guys were about fun, decadance and putting on one hell of a fun show. Theyve been around over 20 years and are still going strong. Who cares if theyre not lyrically or musically superior to other bands, they're motley crue and never pretended to be anything else. And millions of people love them for it.

Posted by Pete on Monday, 04.14.08 @ 12:00pm


sex,drugs,and rock and roll is motley crue they rock to hard to be in the rock and roll hall of fame. You would have to put a parental advisery sticker on the front door of the hall.

Anybody heard the new Mötley Crüe single, "Saints of Los Angeles." Sounds just like classic Crue. The boys have come home at last.

Dameon, this question isn't about the Crue, but I was hoping you could answer it (any other regular who would like to chime in, please do).

Why are some well known bands not present on this site? To use a couple of examples:

Rare Earth
Black Oak Arkansas

Now, I'm not saying these bands are Hall-worthy. But, if The Cowsills, The Kingsmen, Weird Al Yankovic, etc. can get a page (where you can comment on them), why not these & many other bands I could mention if I gave it some thought? Not enough bandwidth to have pages for them all?

Posted by Paul in KY on Wednesday, 08.20.08 @ 08:31am


Paul - There are so many bands that have been out there that it is almost impossible to have listed them all when the site was first created. The designers and Web Adm. of this site do a very good job of staying on point with everything. Go to the left navigational bar and click onto "Contact Future Rock Hall" and e-mail them what bands you have noticed which are missing. They will get a board up for those bands within a couple of weeks.

Dameon, thank you for your response. I will contact the administrators of this site.

Appreciate your advice.

As a long time fan from the Too Fast For Love days, I have to say Motley is not RRHOF material.

IMO you have to be able to reach across multiple genres and generations of listeners before you should be considered.

For the record, Motley is best described as Punk Metal. Not Glam Rock, Hair Metal, or even Heavy Metal.

Posted by Dameon on Monday, 09.8.08 @ 17:23pm


"IMO you have to be able to reach across multiple genres and generations of listeners before you should be considered."

9/10ths of all acts up for induction can barely make it past one genre, much less many genres. Think about it for a second. Everyone argues for Iggy & the Stooges, but outside of punk & metal, who are they reaching? Country-rock, new wave, industrial, emo? Certainly nobody from these genres would be caught dead claiming influence from them (well, maybe the emo's, but that's just desperation over lack of credibility, not really anything to do w/ actual influence). Most bands reach maybe two demographic groups at most when it comes to fan allegiance.

Deep down inside I would like to see Motley get in, but they probably wont. They never really did do anything innovative or influential, but they put out a lot of good material. I guess i'd like to believe this counts for something.

I just came from the Rolling Stone website, where I have been left honestly stunned by one of the stories I read. In it, Nikki Sixx blasts the Disney crap for not being rock, and how the very term "rock star" has become a misnomer. Now it's not his comments I find bad (I agree wholeheartedly w/him). Some of teh posts actually defend these clowns, going so far as to say that the Disney crowd actually out-rocks the Crue! Now I'm not gonna bash anyone who thinks the Crue shouldn't be in the Hall, but it's unreal how pathetic some people have gotten regarding rock! Later on a few posts even had the Disney herd compared to the Beatles and the Stones! If everyone on this site wants something to laugh at, head to RS and click on this. It's hilarious!

Posted by Cheesecrop on Friday, 09.12.08 @ 15:18pm


Motley Crue should definaltly be there . After all thoses years they are still the best I have ever seen and still touring with Cruefest 2008 was absolutley amazing. They have inspired so many other bands and helped alot of people during their long and successful career .

Posted by Queen of Rock on Friday, 09.19.08 @ 18:38pm


These guys NEED to be in there! Their contribution to the '80's music industry along with the lifestyle and classic songs which still sound "FRESH" today complete the requirements necessary to induct these guys. With Nikki Sixx at the helm, this group (impressive that they are still around today!) is now in the catagory of ROCK ROYALTY. This band is legendary, they clawed their way to the top and have lived to tell about it...they still can kick ass and sure deserve to be in the ROCK n ROLL Hall of Fame. Hey, MOTLEY CRUE is rock and roll ! no doubt about it! Alot of the bands out there today owe a debt of gratitude to these guys. Thank you.

Motley Crue = ROCK ROYALTY = LEGENDARY ROCK GODS.
period.

I happen to be a fan of Tommy's ability, but I am interested in what innovation he brought to the live show. He had great solos, we have seen that before from hundreds of drummers. He certainly was the driving beat to the music because Niki is not the best of bassists, but we have seen that before as well. And please don't say it was the lift and spin. Spinning in a cage suspended above the stage while doing the solo is not new. I suggest you check out Carl Palmer. He did it back in the early 70's.
Posted by Dameon on Wednesday

Tommy Lee,I dunno know he never impressed me in any way as a drummer.
He makes a good racket,but he has no technique
proper.
Has a double bass drum set,yet i haven't heard him do anything with it except make them rumble in unision as oppossed to say a double bass drummers like Tommy Aldridge,Brain Downey (from Thin Lizzy) or Carmine Appice who actually know how to play them.

Carl Palmer,great drummer,a favorite.
It was Keith Emerson i remember doing the playing upside down while suspended from the ceiling bit.
Did Palmer also do it?,i have no recollection of this...
If so i would of liked to seen that!
I'm in my mid forties so i was a fan in their heyday,like you i suspect.

Not to be difficult ,but Emerson did it (as well?.)
I've never heard of Palmer doing that,might be wrong though.
I have old issues of Circus from 1973with ELP/ Emerson and he's pictured doing so.
Also if Emerson did it at Cal. Jam (it was a large concert with various groups that ABC T.V. aired and i had watched as a kid.)

Gary - not to be looking to disagree, but having seen ELP a half a dozen times, I never recall Keith ever doing that. Of course, it was the 70's and the memory is a bit fuzzy. But Palmer definitely did it.

I did see the Keith Emerson band last year. He still kicked seriosu ass.

I will take you on your word then,and of course it's all fun chatting about music.
i knew Emerson did it (i posted the 1973 Cal Jam clip as evidence),but didn't know Palmer did it as well.
Now i'm intrigued.

Everybody has opinions about who should be inducted.I do not care for some of the inductees.Some made only one or two albums but they were influential records.I believe everybody has deserved to be in the RRHF.Motley Crue was very big for quite a while.They stuck it out through the hard times.It is amazing they are all still alive.Even more amazing is they are still together after 27 years.I think they should without a doubt be in the RRHF.I hope they make it because I live in Cleveland and it would be another chance to see them.Cruefan4life.

I have no problem with Motley Crue getting in...they were an important band in their genre...If we set the criteria too high (critic's darlings) for this hall we're gonna run out of bands to put in it...That said, I agree with Dameon though, there are a handful of 70's bands that belong in there ahead of the Crue.

"Theyve been around over 20 years and are still going strong. Who cares if theyre not lyrically or musically superior to other bands, they're motley crue and never pretended to be anything else. And millions of people love them for it."
Best quote of this discussion so far. First heard "Shout" in sixth grade and have to hear a band I can keep listening to since. No disrespect to other rock legends, I just love CRUE music. You don't have to interpret their lyrics for a deeper meaning or wonder why they wrote their music. Just flat out FUN!! Enjoyed a lot of "hair" metal in the 80's, but NO ONE was the CRUE!! Just something a little better, a little different, and A LOT more head bangin'!! Rock on CRUE!!!

Posted by hawk91 on Friday, 05.15.09 @ 17:53pm


There better than a lot of bands that sit on the outside looking in. They're another band I'd have no issue with seeing in the Hall, but I think we both know they won't get an honest break.

Posted by Cheesecrop on Friday, 05.15.09 @ 18:26pm


Motley Crue should definatly be in there.They are ROYALTY!every one of their songs is amazing and everyone knows it or they are stupid.And my dad worked for mic Mars when he was a teenager, doing construction work on his house and they were friends. he even gave him his girls girls girls guitar, but my dad had to sell it to pay bills.:( and he is mad at himself for doing it.

Posted by matthew aguirre on Monday, 06.1.09 @ 15:10pm


Is there any other band out there who can call them self true sleaze than Mötley? They were the gods of hairmetal/glam/sleaze before they even were Mötley Crüe.They are like the creator of the definition sleaze. OMG, if Bon Jovi deserves to be in the RRHOF then Mötley deserves it a thousand more.

Posted by Elli on Thursday, 07.9.09 @ 05:47am


Actually, I think the NY Dolls and Aerosmith beat them out for that title about 10 years earlier. Take a look at some of the youtube clips of the NY Dolls. You will be shocked as to the extent of which Nicki Sixx ripped off Johnny Thunders look and style.

Don't get me wrong - I am a big Crue fan and agree that if BJ gets in, then The Crue ceratianly deserve the same.

Posted by Dameon on Thursday, 07.9.09 @ 06:57am


I'm not a hater by nature, but I do despise Motley Crue. IMO they just plain stink.

Posted by Worm on Wednesday, 08.12.09 @ 17:44pm


just started listening to motley crue.
tommy lee is definetely talented.
mick mars is the soul of the group
he does play all the guitar work in the songs.
vince neil i very average. and nikki is very
average. unfortunately they probably won't get in
soon. they have great songs.
but 2 of 4 members do not make the group.
but like I said I said I just started listening recently but, they are great.

I think this is one of those cases where some of the fans do overrate them a bit, yet plenty of critics also underrate them. Sometimes you have to look beyond the singles; for example, I think "Shout at the Devil" (song) and "Red Hot" are better than "Looks That Kill" and "Too Young to Fall In Love." Dameon mentioned the NY Dolls; I haven't really listened to them, but I watched the documentary "The Importance of Being Morrisey" and it had a clip of them playing, and yes, they did start the ugly transvestite look. In fact, I specifically remember a Crue documentary where Nikki said that what he was looking for was a band with the looks of the Dolls, the sound of Black Sabbath and songs as good as Mott the Hoople. Certainly, they put their own spin on things, and lo and behold when Too Fast For Love began to gain momentum more and more lookalikes and soundalikes began to appear in L.A. and gradually in other places (Poison were actually from Pennsylvania.) No, they're not the greatest band in the world, but I don't think they ever tried to be (kind of like KISS.) Because of the number of bands that popped up in their wake and the fact that they had some great songs, I feel they do deserve it, but only after Alice Cooper, KISS, T.Rex, The NY Dolls and Mott the Hoople or Sweet or Slade make it (oh, and don't forget about Ozzy, because they opened for him, and possibly Quiet Riot, who might have helped get that scene going. Possibly Twisted Sister as well.) At the very least those guys should get in first. Overall, though, they should move even further back in the line because Deep Purple, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Venom, Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax, Hawkwind, Thin Lizzy and the early prog bands deserve it first as well. They should all go in before G'N'R though (as great as Guns were, they did open for Motley, and kind of latched on to the hair band look sometimes.) As it is, though, Guns is a lock while Motley will be lucky if they're even nominated.

Posted by Sam on Thursday, 02.4.10 @ 19:20pm


This band is a joke.

Vince Neil is the poster boy for bad singing. It's not like he's singing wordy stuff, yet he is physically incapable of delivering an entire line in a live setting.

Among real singers, "pulling a Vince Neil" is an insult, and implies that you mailed it in, half-assed your performance, and pretty much sucked that night.

The rest of the band isn't any better. Mick Mars is at least a competent player, but you can tell that he doesn't actually like the music he's playing and lacks the integrity to do his own thing for less money.

Posted by Ralph on Tuesday, 03.16.10 @ 10:50am


It is true that Vince is pretty much going through the motions these days, and collecting his retirement funds. Whenever I see clips of him these days he misses a bunch of lyrics, or is unable to sing all of them ("Rat tail Jimmy...Second hand hood...Hollywood.") Nikki isn't much of a bassist, he'd probably admit that himself. However, I think Tommy and Mick are good players. Mick did do his own thing beforehand, as he's much older than the rest of them and busted his ass playing in small bands for nearly a decade before he met Nikki and Tommy. If he doesn't like what he's playing he's done a damn good job of hiding it (he said in '98 that in '81 they were disgusted by the pop scene around them, and his ambition became to "grow my hair down to my ass and play the loudest, rudest music I can." 2 for 2.) What you described, Ralph, sounds to me like Neal Schon with Journey. In what I've heard from Journey he seems like a good guitarist and that he does like what he's doing (though he was at first resistant to Perry joining the band), but for less money he could be playing stuff where he could have the chance to really shine. It doesn't seem like Journey gives him a chance to shine. But back to the Crue. They're in a similar spot as Def Leppard (though the latter has a much better chance of getting in.) They both in the 80's were not only really popular, but were ruling MTV, both got hard rock going on the network, and had a massive influence on the sound of the decade, and there is a case to be made for that. However, it doesn't look like either band has had much influence since the 80's ended (thanks Liam for pointing that out) and neither were that innovative. I'd say they both could deserve in, but only after ALL, and I mean all, of the bands that paved the way for them and got them to where they are get in, and even after that there's some more deserving acts that are (or will be) eligible. That's a long wait. Both are more deserving than GNR or Bon Jovi, though (I like some of both, by the way.)

Posted by Sam on Tuesday, 03.16.10 @ 19:51pm


"There aint much point debating whether Motley crue is better than sabbath, deep purple, and...god forbid, somebody said U2???" There is no debate. The Edge is far more creative a guitarist than Mars. Technically better? No, but definitely more creative. Adam Clayton is definitely a better bassist than Nikki, and Bono vs. Vince? Ha. Bono's voice still holds up live after nearly 25 years of playing stadiums and 35 years of performing. Deep Purple and Sabbath can outplay them anyday. Besides, I believe the Crue were influenced by Sabbath, and Vince has called Purple an influence on him.

"Cheesecrop, I saw the Nikki Sixx rant - what a worldclass a-hole he is and sorry, but Motley Crue give hole new meaning to the word sucks." Did you see what those Disney fan morons were saying on Rolling Stone?! Some of them were putting the Jonas Brothers on the same level as The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.

Posted by Sam on Monday, 03.29.10 @ 17:09pm


Surely Motley Crue should be in the Hall.. Great songwriting from Nikki Sixx, CLASSIC Riffs! And this band is just the essense of bad boy metal / cock rock. They were never hair og glam, like these cheesy posers in Poison or Warrant or whatever. This band inspired real bands and artists like Pantera and Marylin Manson. Crüe was always heavier than the pop-metal acts of L.A, and they were very unique both in sound, style and image. (ok, they did ONE glam'ish album in 1985).

Twisted Sister should be up before The Crüe though, because that band is just what Heavy Metal is/was all about. Again, TS was like MC a very misunderstood band by the masses, who only new them by shortlived image. Their music and lyrics just had SO much more, than these so called critics ever recognized.

I also think Dave Mustaine or Megadeth should be in there.

But really...The Hall of Fame has been a joke for ages, and nobody really takes it seriously anymore.

Posted by RatDog on Wednesday, 04.28.10 @ 17:52pm


"Surely Motley Crue should be in the Hall.. Great songwriting from Nikki Sixx, CLASSIC Riffs!" True, a case could be made for them, and they are a great band.

"They were never hair og glam, like these cheesy posers in Poison or Warrant or whatever." Ah... but they were indeed glam. Glam has just as much to do with looks as it does sound, and they were influenced by glam bands.

"This band inspired real bands and artists like Pantera and Marylin Manson." Marilyn Manson is industrial/shock rock. He may have been influenced by the Crue, but I haven't heard him say it and I certainly can't detect it. Pantera? Perhaps when they were a hair band (though Dime was a big KISS fan from way back...) but certainly not 90's Pantera.
"Crüe was always heavier than the pop-metal acts of L.A," Absolutely.
"and they were very unique both in sound, style and image. (ok, they did ONE glam'ish album in 1985)." Unique among the LA bands, yes.

"Twisted Sister should be up before The Crüe though, because that band is just what Heavy Metal is/was all about. Again, TS was like MC a very misunderstood band by the masses, who only new them by shortlived image. Their music and lyrics just had SO much more, than these so called critics ever recognized." Dee Snider does say TS were the original hair formers (OHF.) You could say that they were to the East Coast what the Crue and Van Halen were to the West Coast; they actually were around since the mid 70's, and recorded their first album in 1978, though they didn't break into the mainstream until 1984. Good band.

"I also think Dave Mustaine or Megadeth should be in there." Megadeth certainly should be there.

"But really...The Hall of Fame has been a joke for ages, and nobody really takes it seriously anymore." Perfect (except Gene Simmons does.) You and I could become very good friends.



Posted by Sam on Wednesday, 04.28.10 @ 18:26pm


"Whether you liked metal or not we can all agree that these were all highly influential/successful bands who deserve a spot in the Hall, bottom line!!"

GNR weren't influential, but yes they were great. I'm not sure about the Crue either, but the rest should absolutely be inducted.

Posted by Sam on Saturday, 05.29.10 @ 13:41pm


Everyone on here is insane if they think Motley Crue shoudln't be in Rock's HOF. They started an era, took sex, drugs, and rock n roll to a whole new level, and they tore up the world. Just like with Ozzy and Sabbath that started so many metel bands to come, Crue did the same thing with hair bands and also were the reason for GNR's starting fame when they did AFD on the Girls tour. So yeah they def. deserve a spot.

I grew up with mötley crüe in the 80's. after all the sex drugs and problems in the 80's they became legends. maybe stones did it to but we're talking about a band where the songwriter died 2 times in the 80's and is still alive. where vince got to jail for killing hanoi rocks drummer in a car crash. a drummer who always were in jail. but they stil made the music sound good.
love motley for ever.

The only thing i can say since im not a big fan of Motley Crue is that i meet Tommy Lee in in like 06 at the Las Vegas International airport and my Mom took a picture with him.

The hall of fame of rock and roll is a joke itself, and should not be taken seriously. To me rock and roll it's all about the music, life style and the influence of a band in the people. Leave the HOF stuff to the NFL and baseball.

When will this happen? I mean come on they should have been in a long time ago. They have kicked ass around the world 100 times over and then some and yet they still are not inducted. its bull and they should be in there..

Posted by HollywoodVampirella on Monday, 09.27.10 @ 21:26pm


If it happens it won't be for a long time. You'll need some new people on the Commitee, people who have more of an appreciation for the 80's.

"The Rock n Roll hall of fame needs Motley Crue!"

Hardly.

Posted by Chalkie on Friday, 11.26.10 @ 11:35am


"The American version of the Sex Pistols."

Nah... more like a Californian version of Aerosmith or the New York Dolls. Or a cross between the Dolls, Aerosmith and KISS (Kip Winger described their look as a cross between KISS and the New York Dolls). Some people have compared the Sex Pistols to the Dolls, I believe, so...

"The best of the last."

What does that mean?

"They stand for Rock N Roll in every way."

I like the Crue, but I'm still confused as to what you mean by that.

"The Rock n Roll hall of fame needs Motley Crue!"

More than they need Bon Jovi or J. Geils, I'll give you that.

They started the hair bands, made memorable songs, influenced bands today, got a star on the Hollywood walk of fame, come from the streets and slums of LA, and did something most people do not know got metallic their first gig at the whiskey ya go go eventhough afterwards metallica talked bad about them but still go the same producer on the black album as motley crue got on dr feelgood cause they liked the album. Motley crue deserves it just as metallica, kiss, deep purple, and guns n roses deserve it. All hail the crue!!!

Posted by Vikkivoodoo on Thursday, 06.16.11 @ 17:11pm


Motley Crue deserves to be in the hall of fame. but if snotty critics are going to keep them out for this long then i say foget them. true rock and roll is about making music not making it into a hall.
the spirit of motley crue is to not care about anything, and theyve been influencing people for generations now. Nikki Sixx has done loads of stuff and so has everyone else. also gonna throw out that J. Geils should deffinitly get in there too.

Posted by Andy on Friday, 06.17.11 @ 11:33am


YES! Motley Crue deserves to be in the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame more than anyone else. They have created a lot of great music. They've all been through so much in their lives. They have been eligable since 2006 and they are still not in!?! They were one of the greatest bands of the 80's, just as good as Guns N' Roses were. They're still going strong, with all of the original members, and they are still kicking ass today. They need put in soon.

Posted by kayla on Wednesday, 07.20.11 @ 18:01pm


Influence: They were the head of the glam metal scene, the exact reason they shouldn't be in. Still, influence is influence so that's a yes.
Innovation:... no not really. Drum solos and live technical stuff had been done before and better (think the drummer floating above the audience is impressive? try spinning a grand piano around with the guy STILL playing!)
Commercial: They were pretty damn big back in the day: Yes
Critical Opinion: They hate these guys, still do. NO

so that's halfway.

Posted by GFW on Friday, 08.12.11 @ 16:10pm


Motley Crue Should absolutely be inducted into the Rock n roll hall of fame. They highly influenced many MANY bands (Guns n roses especially). There music is classic and they are literally walking works of art (their clothes in themselves are artistic). This band always gets a load of flack for some reason, despite the fact that they were the most influential band of the 80's. When people look back they will say: 50's = Elvis, 60's = Beatles, 70's = Led Zeppelin, 80's = Motley Crue, 90's = Nirvana. The Crue NEEDS to be inducted.

Posted by Bret on Wednesday, 09.28.11 @ 01:56am


Motley Crue more influential than New Order or The Cure?
Hahahahaha.

Posted by GFW on Wednesday, 09.28.11 @ 12:45pm


That's one hell of a sense of humour you have there. I don't mind Motley; if forced to pick I'd say they have a place in the Hall eventually. However, expanding on what GFW said: If I ranked the most influential bands of the 80's they'd struggle to crack the top 20, maybe even 30.

Posted by Sam on Wednesday, 10.19.11 @ 08:10am


Anybody who thinks Motley Crue are more influential than New Order or the Cure needs a reality check.

Posted by Cokey on Friday, 11.25.11 @ 10:58am


i am a 30 crue fan who saw them open for ozzy thru headlining at cruefest.they deserve to be in the hall as much as any rock bad out there hands down. but before we give them their due we must recognize bands like Y&T and Ozzy that paved the way for the crues success. these kids were in the crowd at the whiskey or the stone in S.F. watching Meniketti and Rhodes wail on guitars and wishing they could take it to the next level.

Posted by hawkfan on Wednesday, 12.7.11 @ 11:31am


Motley deserves Hall status. Hugely influential band loaded with raw power and energy. Great songs, plenty of edge and attitude. When 80s ended, it was Aerosmith and Dr. Feelgood left standing when all those less talented and depressing bands got popular.

New Order or The Cure? We are talking rock here, not geeky yuppie pop. Motley will definitely get in. They are as legendary as they were sucessful. Raw power, slick lyrics and some sleeze. A great American rock band.

"New Order or The Cure? We are talking rock here, not geeky yuppie pop. Motley will definitely get in. They are as legendary as they were sucessful. Raw power, slick lyrics and some sleeze. A great American rock band." - Eddie Dobzanski

Yuppie pop? If you're going to resort to insults you could at least try to say something offensive. Besides, you selectively ignored the opportunity to refute my argument. Prove to me that there are more bands that cite Motley Crue as an influence than there are bands that cite New Order or the Cure as an influence, then I'll start taking your commentary seriously.

Also, your comments are a cavalcade of personal descriptions that hold no credibility, for instance:

"They are as legendary as they are successful"
Who says they're legendary other than you? Come up with citations not libations.

"Raw power"
What does this mean? You could have easily confirmed all stereotypes by incorporating other nugatory expressions like "pure sound," "sexy grinding rawk" or "corporate rock" into your commentary.

"slick lyrics"
Yeah, because song titles like "Mother F*cker of the Year," "New Tattoo," "Hammered," "Piece of Your Action" and "Slice of Your Pie" sound really sophisticated don't they? You must be proud.

"A great American rock band"
Let's how many people'll agree with this statement in 40 years, then we can start measuring how important Motley Crue really are (was).

When you can go on a world wide tour 25years after you first started and sell out all those arenas, thats legendary. You guys dont strike me as football fans, but this weekend turn a playoff game on. To light 50,000 fans up with energy and intensity, theyll be playing ac/dc, Guns and Roses, and Motley Crue. You wont hear any 90s crap and the only place The Cure will be heard is in the last stall by the gay guys.

I'm a football fan - In my section of the world, we've been living w/the Eagles collapsing in the NFC Title game for many a year now. It doesn't matter who you get to pump up the crowd, we end up falling flat at the end :)

On to your references to who pumps people up - amidst the "pump up" music you reference, you'll also often hear alleged 90's crap like Bush's "Machinehead" being pumped through the speakers, so I guess you haven't been to many games recently.

As for the rock end of the equation -

AC/DC - Yes, excellent legitimate rock band, deserving of all the accolades

GNR - See above post

Motley Crue - Fashion models who made nice pop that sounded rock enough to fool die-hards. Further confirmation of this can be found on the Journey site.

Posted by Cheesecrop on Friday, 01.13.12 @ 09:45am


I've said what I need to say about Motley Crue in the past so I'm not going to defend them again, but I have to ask...

Why exactly does AC/DC always get widespread acclaim as being a fantastic artist? They have made the same song 300 times over the past 30 years. They have never changed anything about their sound, never gotten past writing the exact same lyrics about girls, drinking and being rowdy and have overall never evolved as an artist. They are one of the few bands that I have gotten so sick of over the years that I will usually change the radio station if they come on, and this is coming from a hard rock fan.

Why exactly do they get a pass, but similar "formulaic" bands like Motley Crue and Nickelback get universally panned? At least those bands sometimes sing about girls, drinking and being rowdy in ballads. :)

Is it because AC/DC was the 1st to do it?

Posted by BSLO on Friday, 01.13.12 @ 10:54am


first off:

Bronson: you're an idiot please die.
@BSLO: Amen. They had some good songs but come on, they are not legends. That's liek calling Chuck berry one of the best guitarists ever.

Posted by GFW on Friday, 01.13.12 @ 13:18pm


What I don't get is what these Motley Crue fans (well, only Eddie and Bronson so far) have against the Cure. First I hear they're "geeky yuppie pop," then only "gay" people listen to them. What else do you need to get off your conscience Crue Crew? Dr. Tahvo is here to listen and analyze this apparent "Cure Trauma" you all seem to be suffering from.

Does it have anything to do with "Cure" being a close spelling to "Crue?" (Just shift the r in "Cure" one spot to the left and they're one and the same.) Perhaps Bronson and Eddie were drunkenly on YouTube one night and in the usual incoherence of excessive inebriation accidentally typed "Cure" into the search bar when they meant "Crue" and thus had to endure to listen to "Friday I'm in Love" when they really just wanted to bob their heads to "Hammered?"

Fill me in, please.

I grew up listening to motley crue an absolutely loved them however I've recently started listening to nicki six on the radio in the e evenings. I have lost all respect for the crue thru this. It is baffling to me ppl actually continue listening. I'm sure he's the reason they've never been nominated into the rock&roll hall of fame. Someone should stop his ignorance from polluting the airways.

I think they probably will get inducted eventually, their influence is just too great and they sold gazillions of records. But, it probably won't be until they are, quite literally, 75 years old or so before it happens. 'Shout at the Devil' is a great rock n'roll record by any measure, and 'Home Sweet Home' is an immortal ballad.

Mötley Crüe in a nutshell for just the 80's

Heart, Soul, Enpowerment, Persitant!

Motley released an album toured and went right back every two years in the 80s keep fresh material out for their many fans selling over 80 million worldwide records to date a very impressive band from the music to personal life if nothing else the two needles that killed Nikki sixx the two times he died and Tommy's penis need inducted but these guys made amazing music!

Home sweet home is an anthem, anyone that hears that songs loves it and the fact that these guys are atill making new material and still selling out stadiums is pretty impressive. Mötley crue keeps popping up on influence lists for upcoming bands and teenagers in this era still jam money crue what more can you ask from a 33 year old band? Awesome music, memorable lifestyles, kick ass live performers and selling out venues for 33 years?! They need to go in the hall of game in 2014! They needed to go in for the 2006 induction but they have waited long enough at least all the members will show up and put on a hell of a show unlike guns n roses

Posted by Brandon Greene on Monday, 10.28.13 @ 14:14pm


Motley Crue will definitely be elected to the RRHOF. They arrived on the LA scene in the early 80's & exploded with The Shout At The Devil album. I remember as a young kid watching the Looks That Kill song & video.

They had great commercial success in the 80's with the Theatre of Pain & Girls,Girls,Girls CD's. Home Sweet Home is sometimes mentioned as the first power ballad which would be innovation.

Motley Crue reminds me of the Beatles many of the fans had a favorite member. Obviously, girls were attracted to Nikki,Vince,& Tommy. Mick was a little bit older than the rest (f to) of the band.

The poster made a great comparison with Kiss & Motley Crue. Both were better musicians & songwriters than they were given credit for. Motley Crue is Rock n Roll.Pure & Simple.You can't tell the history of Rock without Motley Crue.That will be the final reason for their induction. KING

Posted by KING on Wednesday, 01.29.14 @ 03:09am


Mötley Crüe should really be in by next year before they break up. Let them get inducted along with Deep Purple, Twisted Sister, Yes, Motörhead, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and Boston.
Of course I don't think anyone from Motley really cares but Jann Wenner has some beef with the band for some reason. However he can't deny how influential the 80s were of metal and rock. It's a shame that Madonna got in before Mötley Crüe (and she should have never been inducted in the first place).

Posted by DioFan on Saturday, 02.1.14 @ 19:19pm


Went to see the Crue this week, they have been playing to packed crowds with very loyal followers for the past 30 years. B80s bands come and go but Mötley Crüe has and will stand the test of time. I just visited the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Historically speaking, if the Hall represents a timeline of music history, then why does the Hall end the LA music scene in 1980- this is void of what actually happened and the birth of the 80's metal bands. Instead the Hall skips ahead to the Seatle music scene, stating that it started in 1979. All I can say is ...WHAT? This leaves out a Huge influence of 80's metal rock. This board is made of scholars and historians- examine history, consider influence, this should be reconsidered.
