Subscribe to The Basin’s Real Rock 99.9 K-Bat on

Here’s a classic band that has just about done and seen it all. It’s about time we take a look at the raucous bad boys Motley Crue for our You Think You Know Metal? series.

And while the band has made their fair share of headlines over the years, there may still be a few things you don’t know about Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee and Mick Mars. And that’s what the You Think You Know Metal? series is all about.

So dig into their history and find out which member actually suggested the band’s name and what their moniker almost was. Learn what pre-Motley band featured Nikki Sixx and W.A.S.P.’s Blackie Lawless. Discover who it is that’s actually providing the theatrical narration on “In the Beginning” from Shout at the Devil. And learn which journalistic icon actually inspired the title of one of Motley Crue’s albums.

Find out those little nuggets of trivia along with all sorts of other Motley Crue-related facts by checking out the episode of You Think You Know Metal? above! And take a look at other You Think You Know Metal? episodes at this location.

Script by Ed Rivadavia and Graham ‘Gruhamed’ Hartmann; Narration by Tony LaBrie; Video Editing by Paul Brasil.
