Motley Crue fans were hyped when rocker Tommy Lee revealed that the band's Netflix-backed biopic The Dirt has started pre-production. To keep the buzz going about the forthcoming flick, the group released the title track for the film titled "The Dirt (1981)," featuring Machine Gun Kelly. It's been revealed that the rapper, real name Richard Colson Baker, will also play Tommy Lee in the biopic. This isn't MGK's first time in front of the camera as he was also featured in Nerve alongside Dave Franco and Emma Roberts, as well as Punk's Dead: SLC Punk 2 and Viral.
"The Dirt (1981)" is a high-energy single with breakdowns, catchy beats, and '80s style rock 'n' roll that is squarely Motley Crue. MGK adds his flavor to the mix without taking away from the iconic rock group's signature sound. Fans can expect more new music from Motley Crue with the release of The Dirt's soundtrack which includes a cover of Madonna's "Like a Virgin."
