Listen To Mötley Crüe’s Cover Of Like A Virgin
Mötley Crüe have released their cover of Madonna’s Like A Virgin, taken from the upcoming soundtrack to The Dirt.
This is the second track to be released from the forthcoming biopic, and is one of four pieces of new music recorded by Mötley Crüe specifically for the film.
Like A Virgin follows last month’s new track The Dirt (Est. 1981), featuring Machine Gun Kelly on guest vocals.
“During the filming of our movie we got excited and inspired to write new music,” said Nikki Sixx about The Dirt (Est. 1981). “Getting back in the studio with Bob Rock just fuelled the creative fires for us. To me, the music sounds like classic Mötley. The lyrics were written for the movie and are a reflection of our life.”
We recently spoke to Nikki Sixx about his beef with Kiss stealing Mötley Crüe’s schtick for their recent live shows.
“I just think it’s uncool,” Nikki told Kerrang! last month. “I think it’s uncool of the company to make the same thing again for them. I don’t know, it just bothers me. It was our last tour on Earth, and something that people have posters of on their walls is now being repeated by KISS. Sure, we all use pyro and stuff, but with this we re-invented an idea. And this was our idea.”
Crüe’s biopic The Dirt will be released on Netflix on March 22 and is sure to be as controversial as the band themselves.
