Sunday, time for a classic.
Saw the new movie "The Dirt", the 2019 American biographical drama film directed by Jeff Tremaine from a screenplay by Rich Wilkes, about glam metal band MÖTLEY CRÜE. The film stars Douglas Booth, Colson Baker, Daniel Webber, and Iwan Rheon.
Talks of a MÖTLEY CRÜE biopic began as early as 2006, when Paramount Pictures and MTV Films purchased the rights to the book The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band by Neil Strauss. However, the project then languished in development hell for over a decade, going through numerous directors and cast members before Netflix purchased the rights in March 2017. Filming began around New Orleans in February 2018.
The Dirt was released digitally on Netflix on March 22, 2019. It received mixed reviews from critics, who said the film would please fans but that it hesitated "in handling the more troubling aspects of the band's history.
After I saw the movie I got a little CRÜE flash, played a few albums thru and decided to play one of the tunes as a classic. The movie was okay, even if some of the things that were read in the book wasn't told. But in the whole, I guess a pretty decent story of the lads.
"Primal Scream" is a song by the American heavy metal band MÖTLEY CRÜE. The single was released on their 1991 album "Decade of Decadence" 81-91, which was the band's first of many greatest hits compilations. The song charted at number 63 on The Billboard 100 and number 21 on the Mainstream rock charts. The album "Decade of Decadence" was released on October 19, 1991 and "Primal Scream" was one of three newly recorded songs for the album, the other two being "Angela" and "Anarchy in the U.K."
"Primal Scream" features a music video. The uncensored version of the music video (see it below) contained full-frontal nudity of a female dancing at the end, but that scene was edited for heavy rotation when aired on worldwide television.
The song was said by Nikki Sixx himself via an AskSixx session on Twitter in October 2015, to be written about Arthur Janov's 1970 book "The Primal Scream. Primal Therapy: A Cure For Neurosis." As well as his own childhood.
"Decade of Decadence" also featured another single, The remix version of "Home Sweet Home" which was the band's 8th and final Top 40 hit in 1991, reaching #37 on the Billboard Hot 100. The original 1985 version only reached #89 on the same chart.
