MÖTLEY CRÜE Was One Of GOOGLE's Top U.S. Trending Search Terms Of 2019 In 'Musicians And Bands' Category

December 12, 2019

On Wednesday, Google released its "Year In Search" list, revealing some of the top trending searches in a number of topics. Specifically, Google looked at the biggest trends — meaning, search terms that saw the largest spikes in traffic over a sustained period in 2019 compared to 2018.

In the U.S., MÖTLEY CRÜE was the No. 6 biggest search trend of 2019 in the "Musicians And Bands" category. Rappers R. Kelly and 21 Savage were at the top of the list, followed by singer Billie Eilish. Also making the Top 10 were rapper Lil Nas X and singer Lizzo.

Google's top U.S. trending searches of 2019 in "Musicians And Bands" category:

01. R. Kelly
02. 21 Savage
03. Billie Eilish
04. Lil Nas X
05. A$AP Rocky
07. Lizzo
08. Gladys Knight
09. Tekashi 69
10. Joy Villa

It should be noted that the above musicians/artists were the top trending search terms of 2019, not the "most searched" or "top searches" overall — just what searches were trending the most in the United States over the last year.

With the success of CRÜE's biopic "The Dirt" on Netflix and its soundtrack, the band landed another No. 1 album on iTunes and Top 10 worldwide with 22 chart-topping singles and seven albums on the charts. Its massive global success saw CRÜE's popularity rush to new highs, catapulting the band's music back to the top of the worldwide charts with the younger 18-44 demographic now representing 64% of the band's fanbase. Moreover, in the six months following the release of "The Dirt", MÖTLEY CRÜE has celebrated a meteoric rise of almost 350% increase in streams of their music across all streaming platforms. In addition, MÖTLEY CRÜE's music is frequently licensed by major household brands such as KIA Motors, Dodge, Coldwell Banker, NASCAR, Carl's Jr. and many more.

Earlier this month, the four members of MÖTLEY CRÜE scrapped their supposed contractual agreement to never tour again just four years after the band's farewell trek and announced a stadium tour with DEF LEPPARD, POISON and Joan Jett. The 22-date "The Stadium Tour", as it's being called, kicks off July 7, 2020 at Miami, Florida's Hard Rock Stadium and wraps up on September 5 at Los Angeles's SoFi Stadium. Tickets go on sale on December 13 at 10:00 a.m.
