Motley Crue release video for title track to the Netflix biopic The Dirt

Motley Crue have released a video for their new single, “The Dirt (Est.1981)” featuring Machine Gun Kelly, from their upcoming Netflix biopic of the same name.

The clip mixes footage of the legendary band alongside snippets from the film, which was directed by Jeff Tremaine and features Kelly as drummer Tommy Lee, Daniel Webber as singer Vince Neil, Douglas Booth as bassist Nikki Sixx and Iwan Rheon as guitarist Mick Mars.

“During the filming of our movie we got excited and inspired to write new music,” says Sixx. “Getting back in the studio with Bob Rock just fueled the creative fires for us. To me, the music sounds like classic Motley. The lyrics were written for the movie and are a reflection of our life.”

Set to premiere March 22 on Netflix, the project also delivers a companion soundtrack – released the same day – that features 14 classic tracks and four new recordings from sessions last fall with producer Bob Rock: “The Dirt (Est. 1981)”, “Ride With The Devil”, “Crash And Burn” and a cover of Madonna’s “Like A Virgin.”

With nine studio albums to their credit, Motley Crue have sold more than 100 million records worldwide, including 25 million in the US alone.

The band delivered their final performance in Los Angeles on December 31, 2015 as part of an 18-month farewell tour.
