MÖTLEY CRÜE Releases Music Video For 'Same Ol' Situation (S.O.S.)' Featuring Footage From 'The Dirt'
October 7, 2019
MÖTLEY CRÜE has released a 2019 music video for the "Dr. Feelgood" album song "Same Ol' Situation (S.O.S.)", with additional footage from the band's biopic "The Dirt". Check it out below.
"The Dirt", based on CRÜE's 2001 New York Times bestselling autobiography, debuted in March on Netflix. The film's stars, Douglas Booth (Nikki Sixx),"Game Of Thrones"' Iwan Rheon (Mick Mars),Colson Baker (a.k.a. Machine Gun Kelly) (Tommy Lee),Daniel Webber (Vince Neil),David Costabile (Doc McGhee) and Pete Davidson (Tom Zutaut) have all gotten critical kudos. "They possess similar abilities to navigate between charm and repulsion, all working together to create such a chummy group that their power as an ensemble elevates the material. Just like their real-life counterparts," wrote The Guardian.
MÖTLEY CRÜE's Nikki Sixx said: "In the film, we show painful examples of domestic violence, DUI, manslaughter, drug overdose and the loss of a child. We couldn't possibly have crammed everything from a 430-page book into an-hour-and-50-minute movie, but we felt we achieved our objective of showing the downside of sex drugs and rock and roll."
"The Dirt Soundtrack" features four new songs, including the first single, "The Dirt (Est. 1981) (feat. Machine Gun Kelly)", and CRÜE's unlikely cover of Madonna's "Like A Virgin".
MÖTLEY CRÜE's last studio album was 2008's "Saints Of Los Angeles", which was followed by a 2009 "Greatest Hits" compilation.
In 2015, MÖTLEY CRÜE completed "The Final Tour", closing the book on the band's iconic career after performing a total of 164 shows in 72 markets, grossing over $100 million.
To cement the sense of finality, the four members of MÖTLEY CRÜE in 2014 publicly signed a "cessation of touring" contract that prevents any of them from performing under the CRÜE name in the future.
A tour film about MÖTLEY CRÜE's final shows, "The End", came out in 2016.
