Motley Crue offshoot SixxAM release X-Mas In Hell lyric video

Motley Crue offshoot SixxAM have released a lyric video for “X-Mas In Hell”, a tune from their 20017 soundtrack to “The Heroin Diaries.”

When bassist Nikki Sixx’s memoir was published in 2007, it was the first book to be accompanied by a soundtrack; recorded by SixxAM, the 13 tracks on the record each correspond to one month of Sixx's diary, which he kept from 1986 to 1987 and formed the basis for the autobiography.

“X-Mas In Hell” is based on Sixx’s 1986 Christmas Day diary entry: “There is something about spending Christmas alone, naked, sitting by the Christmas tree gripping a shotgun, that lets you know your life is spinning dangerously outta control.”

Sixx’s 1987 overdose was re-enacted in Motley Crue’s 2019 Netflix biopic, “The Dirt.”

"I am trying to take things that happened in my life and turning them into positives,” explains the rocker. “Opioid Addiction usually ends in death and that is something we would like to turn around."

This past fall, SixxAM issued a new song, “Talk To Me”, in support of a campaign by the National Opioid Action Coalition to overcome the stigma plaguing the opioid use disorder.

Sixx and Motley Crue have reunited for a 2020 stadium tour with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts that will open in San Antonio, TX on June 21.
