Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx recently invited his fans to a Q&A on his Twitter account during which he was asked to reveal the Mötley Crüe song he loves to play live the most. Unsurprisingly, he chose one of their fastest and high-tempo songs.
Mötley Crüe is very well known for their energetic stage performances that sometimes comes off to fans as ‘crazy.’ They tried everything on stage from using fire to spinning Tommy Lee in a glass cage above the crowd while playing the drums. The band reflected their preferred rock and roll lifestyle onstage and gave the audience the time of their lives at the shows.
However, the fans wonder which song is more fun to play for the band. While the audience shake their heads and admire the band looking up to them on stage, they wanted to know what the band think about their own music. What does the band love singing and performing the most? Hence, a fan asked this question recently to Nikki Sixx and the bassist revealed that his favorite song to play on stage is ‘Red Hot.’
‘Red Hot’ is a song from Crüe’s second album, ‘Shout at the Devil.’ This album harbored the band’s most known songs, ‘Shout at the Devil,’ ‘Looks That Kill,’ and ‘Too Young to Fall in Love.’ However, Nikki Sixx picked ‘Red Hot’ as his favorite one to play onstage. The song is one of Crüe’s classics which talks about teenage rebellion and standing up to authority to fight them. The sound especially grabs attention at the beginning of the song, where Tommy Lee rocks the drums fast and furious, which seems to put the band in a trance mood.
Here is what the fan asked:
“What’s your favorite song to play live?”
“I really love ‘Red Hot’ live.”
