Mötley Crüe have premiered their cover of Madonna’s 1984 international smash ‘Like A Virgin’.
Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars, Vince Neil and Tommy Lee recorded their version of ‘Like A Virgin’ late last year for the soundtrack to their upcoming movie The Dirt, which is available to watch on Netflix from Friday 22nd March.
Alongside the cover, Mötley Crüe recorded three original songs for the film - ‘Ride With The Devil’, ‘Crash & Burn’ and ‘The Dirt (Est. 1981)’, which features rapper Machine Gun Kelly (real name Richard Colson Baker) who plays Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee in The Dirt.

Nikki Sixx says of The Dirt soundtrack: “During the filming of our movie we got excited and inspired to write new music. Getting back in the studio with Bob Rock just fuelled 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 collection was mastered by Grammy Award winner Dave Donnelly and fan favourites that feature include ‘Dr. Feelgood’, ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’, ‘Kickstart My Heart’, ‘Same ‘Ol Situation (S.O.S.)’, ‘Shout At The Devil’ and the ballad, ‘Home Sweet Home’.
Based on Mötley Crüe’s infamous 2001 collaborative autobiography The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band, the first trailer for The Dirt premiered in February.
Clocking in at over two-and-a-half minutes, the trailer follows the band from their embryonic days through to their subsequent success and notorious debauchery. Watch it right here:
