Tommy Lee’s Methods Of Mayhem on Tonight Show

Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee has resurrected his Methods Of Mayhem project, 11 years after the band’s debut was released.

MOM’s new album, “A Public Disservice Announcement,” is out this week, and Tommy and the guys are making the media rounds to spread the word.

Lee actually relaunched things last year, when he wrote and recorded songs for the new record, and then made the individual ‘parts’ available for download via to anyone who wanted to add their own parts or remix the existing pieces…to create new soundscapes entirely.

In a way, Lee was offering to collaborate on the record with the whole world.

Between October 5, 2009 and the end of the ‘submission’ period this past February, Tommy received more than 10,000 submissions and more than 1 million page views. Lee reviewed everything, selected the best works, and integrated the tracks into the final album.

According to Tommy, about 50 submissions made the final cut, and everyone whose parts were used received credit and thanks on the disc.

There are special “guest” apparances on “Disservice,” as well: Nickelback's Chad Kroeger sings on "Fight Song," Deftones' Chino Moreno appears on "Only One," and Sum 41's Deryck Whibley is part of the opening track, "Drunk Uncle Pete."

To launch the record, MOM played The Tonight Show last night, performing the first single, “Time Bomb.”
