The only thing louder than Mötley Crüe's music was the band's partying.
Who partied harder than Mötley Crüe in the '80s? No one. Just ask them. Much of the debauchery of Tommy Lee, Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, and Mick Mars-the trashed hotel rooms, the even more trashed celebrity friends (Ozzy Osborne, most memorably), the truckloads of drugs-was recounted in one of the most notorious rock n' roll tell-alls ever: The Dirt. Written by all of the band members and journalist Neil Strauss and released in 2001, it's an ode to being obliterated that exists almost without precedent. With the release of Netflix's adaptation of the same name, we take a look back at the group.
