Episode 16: Motley Crue (Part 1)

There are certain bands I will feature on Sunday Night Videos that will require more than one episode to do them justice. Motley Crue is one of those bands. Crue is one of a handful of bands that pretty much owned the 1980s from start to finish. From 1981 on, they released an album every other year, for total of five albums over the course of the decade. Their first album (Too Fast for Love) of the '80s went platinum, and their last (Dr. Feelgood) did as well--six times.

In this first episode dedicated to Motley Crue, we're looking back at five videos that feature songs from Crue's first two albums--Too Fast for Love and Shout at the Devil.

Live Wire

On With the Show (Live--2005

Looks That Kill

Knock 'Em Dead Kid (Live--1983)

Too Young to Fall In Love

BONUS: Here's an interview clip from way back in 1983 where the band is talking about their influences.

Tune in next Sunday night at 8PM EST on Twitter ( for another episode of Sunday Night Videos, and right here on the blog for the episode notes, which will go up shortly after 9PM EST. You can tweet me recommendations or get in on the discussion every Sunday night by using the hashtag #SundayNightVideos. Rock on!
