“During the filming of our movie we got excited and inspired to write new music,” said Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx. “Getting back in the studio with Bob Rock just fueled 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.”,\
The 18-song soundtrack, mastered by Grammy-winner Dave Donnelly, features a collection of Mötley Crüe classics that underscore significant moments that shape the film. The album includes 14 fan favorites and chart-topping tracks, such as “Dr. Feelgood” and “Girls, Girls, Girls.” Additional hits featured are “Kickstart My Heart,” “Same ol’ Situation (S.O.S.),” “Shout at the Devil” and the iconic ballad “Home Sweet Home.”

The upcoming film “The Dirt” is an unflinching and uncensored story about sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll, fame and the high price of excess. Director Jeff Tremaine (“Jackass” co-creator) shows us how Nikki Sixx (Douglas Booth), Mick Mars (Iwan Rheon), Tommy Lee (Colson Baker ak. Machine Gun Kelly) and Vince Neil (Daniel Webber) took Mötley Crüe from the Sunset Strip to the world stage and what it meant to become the world’s most notorious rock band.
