Band Name Origins:

  • Guitarist, Mick Mars was standing in a room with some other people, when a man walked in and said, "Well you look like a motley crue!" Mick then decided that Motley Crue would be a good band name, and if he was to have another band he would call it Motley Crue. (I read this in the Motley Crue autobiography, 'The Dirt'.) Submitted by: Olivia
  • From a Vince interview on MTV. It was Vince's mom that saw the band members together and she said, "Well, aren't you a motley looking crew." I was not said by some friend or an old man. Submitted by: druidicfear

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Same Ol' Situation"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Introduced me to her lover
in a cellophane dress
Why They're Nonsensical:
1) Was it her or her lover that was wearing the cellophane dress? Since "lover" is closer to the modifier, one would assume that's who is wearing the dress...but it's "*her* lover", which would indicate the unspecified woman in this phrase. So it's still syntactically ambiguous. 2) I've never heard of a dress made of cellophane!
Submitted by: Danielle
"Dr. Feelgood"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Cops on the corner always ignore.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Not 'always'. Perhaps the cops *sometimes* ignore, not all the time.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Looks That Kill"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Now listen up
She’s razor sharp
If she don’t get her way
She’ll slice you apart
Now she’s cool, cool black
Moves like a cat
If you don’t get her game
You might not make it back
Why They're Misrhymed:
This is just an example. There's only one line in the entire song that actually rhymes.

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"All In The Name Of..."
The Dirty Lyrics:
She's only fifteen
She's the reason-
the reason that I can't sleep
You say illegal
I say legal's never been my scene
I try like hell but I'm out of control
All in the name of rock 'n' roll
For sex and sex I'd sell my soul
Why They're Dirty:
Vince Neil is saying she's only 15 - below the age of consent. She's too young! And he's admitting that's he's a pervert.

"Girls Girls Girls"
The Dirty Lyrics:

But they're the best when they're off their feet
Why They're Dirty:
Sweet to eat, and best when off her feet..
