The biopic they thought would never get made is confounding all critics as Mötley Crüe finds a new audience who are rating the film higher than all other films on the streaming service.

Reacting to the news Tommy Lee commented, “We knew the Mötley Crüe fans, who had made The Dirt book a New York Times Bestseller, would be keen to see the movie after hearing it was coming for the past 15 years, but we weren’t expecting the new younger audience reaction to the movie and the music.”

Tommy Lee’s observations from the fan reactions on social media are reflected in the streaming data. The age demo for fans streaming Mötley Crüe’s music includes a much younger demographic. In fact, over the last 28 day, 64% of Spotify streamers were between 18 and 34 years.

Recently, Netflix reported its biggest ever subscriber growth.  In the first quarter of 2019 Netflix gained a record number of new subscribers and now has nearly 149,000,000 members worldwide.

Like Netflix, Mötley Crüe has also experienced rapid growth with google search increasing 4300% and sales up 2000%, with albums including The Dirt Soundtrack, Dr Feelgood, Too Fast For Love, and Greatest Hits charting on iTunes since the release of the film.

Allen Kovac CEO of Eleven Seven Music and Manager of Mötley Crüe commented, “We are seeing a reaction nearly identical to Spotify streaming demographic numbers with our partners at Apple, Deezer and Amazon. The movie is bringing Mötley’s music into the homes, universities dorms and handheld devices of the streaming generation, some of which only knew Mötley Crüe as a cool t-shirt. With Pete Davidson, Machine Gun Kelly and Iwan Rheon from Game of Thrones staring in the film, people are discovering Motley and then going on to buy the vinyl or stream their music. We are already on a new reprint of The Dirt Soundtrack vinyl, as we sold out across Europe.”

The Rotten Tomatoes 95% audience rating demonstrates that this cautionary tale of excess and the world’s most notorious rock band is compelling and engaging.

Nikki Sixx added, “In the movie we re-tell the time Mötley Crüe ignored the advice that Ozzy Osbourne gave us about too much excess driving you crazy. We motored-on at 100 miles an hour, to self-destruction which ultimately lead to me being declared medically dead and the band splitting up. I find it hard to watch myself being resuscitated in the ambulance with a double shot of adrenaline to the heart. It’s like an out of body experience all over again. If we can persuade one person not to take hard drugs this film will be worth it just for that.”

With tremendous success from the film’s soundtrack, the lead track, “The Dirt (Est. 1981) (feat. Machine Gun Kelly)”  has helped introduce the band from a VH1 audience to a younger MTV and YouTube audience, having been added to MTV channels around the world.

As fans watch the biopic, they are SHAZAM-ing and (re)discovering the entire Mötley catalog. One of the most talked about scenes from the film is Billy Squier’s song, “My Kinda Lover” that Vince performs with his band Rock Candi.  And because of the renewed interest in the song, Eleven Seven Music will be releasing a new version soon.

“During the filming of our movie we got excited and inspired to write new music. Getting back in the studio with Bob Rock just fueled 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.” - Nikki Sixx
