30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITIONFEATURING NEW CD AND VINYL PACKAGING AND DELUXE EDITION INCLUDING COLORED VINYL, THREE 7” PICTURE DISCS AND MUCH MORE
Mötley Crüe is celebrating the 30th anniversary of their landmark album “Dr. Feelgood” – watch a teaser. With charting hit singles including “Dr. Feelgood”, “Kickstart My Heart” , “Without You” , “Don’t Go Away Mad (Just Go Away) ” and “Same Ol’ Situation (S.O.S.)” , “Dr. Feelgood” has been the band’s biggest album to date.
The record has sold more than six million copies in the U.S. alone going 6x platinum, is certified 3x platinum in Canada, Gold in the UK and in Switzerland and spent 109 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart, peaking at #1. The band also earned Grammy nominations for “Dr. Feelgood” (1990) and “Kickstart My Heart” (1991) in the Best Rock Performance category and won Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal album for the record at the American Music Awards (1991).
In addition to being the biggest album of the band’s career, “Dr. Feelgood” has had a tremendous effect on pop culture. Inspired by Nikki Sixx’ near-death overdose, the autobiographical “Kickstart My Heart” dives into the band’s sobriety. Over the last 30 years, Sixx has used his platform to be a part of the drug awareness and recovery conversation, an issue which continues to be relevant today more than ever.
Says Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx:
“After feeling robbed of a #1 album with ‘Girls Girls Girls’, the band was hell bent on topping ourselves on every level. Bringing in Bob Rock to produce and push us musically and lyrically was just what the doctor ordered…..The band was clean, lean and sober and this album has some of our proudest work.”
The big “Dr. Feelgood” anniversary comes on the heels of the band’s big comeback announcement #MotleyCrueIsBack. Spurred on by the hugely successful Netflix biopic “The Dirt” which tells the cautionary tale of the world’s most notorious rock band, the comeback is for the new generation of fans created by the biopic. The movie they thought would never get made is confounding all of the critics, as Mötley Crüe finds a new audience, who have given “The Dirt” a 95% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Dr. Feelgood is aviailable on all digital platforms AT THIS LOCATION.
