Motley Crue’s farewell song to be included in new greatest hits package

Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee has revealed that the band’s farewell song, “All Bad Things Must Come To An End”, will be released as part of a new greatest hits package that will surface in sync with the group’s final tour.

Lee tells Billboard that he "just finished the drums" on the track.

"We're just mixing (the song) and getting it together," he says. "It's pretty heavy, but it's really melodic. It's definitely about this time right now with the band and what the feeling is and kind of all that wrapped into a song. I hate to say it's like a goodbye, but it definitely references our time here."

The forthcoming hits collection will be the band’s sixth such compilation, following 1991’s “Decade Of Decadence”, 1998’s “Greatest Hits”, 2003’s “The Millenium Collection: The Best Of Motley Crue”, 2005’s “Red, White And Crue” and 2009’s “Greatest Hits.”

Motley Crue last released new music in 2012, when they issued the single “Sex” to promote the band’s summer tour with KISS. The group’s last full album was 2008’s “Saints Of Los Angeles.”

After more than three decades together, Motley Crue’s “The Final Tour” will kick off July 2 in Grand Rapids, Michigan with guest Alice Cooper.
