The world premiere of ‘The Dirt’ was held in L.A. on Monday, March 18th.

The 18-song soundtrack features a collection of Mötley Crüe classics mastered by Grammy winner, Dave Donnelly that underscore significant moments that shape the film.

The album includes 14 chart-topping fan-favourites including “Dr. Feelgood,” (#6 on Billboard’s Hot 100)and the anthemic “Girls, Girls, Girls,” (#2 on Billboard’s Top 200) amongst others. Additional hits featured are “Kickstart My Heart,” “Same ‘Ol Situation (S.O.S.),” “Shout At The Devil” and the iconic ballad, “Home Sweet Home” that landed the band mainstream recognition (and as most recently heard on the Stranger Things 3 trailer here.)

Exclusive to the film and soundtrack, Mötley Crüe recorded four new songs with iconic Producer, Bob Rock featuring the single, “The Dirt (Est. 1981) (feat. Machine Gun Kelly),” that reached #14 on the US and Canadian radio charts this week. Additional tracks include, “Ride With The Devil,” “Crash And Burn” and the band’s own spin on Madonna’s “Like A Virgin.”

“During the filming of our movie we got excited and inspired to write new music. 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.”   – Nikki Sixx
