Nikki Sixx, the co-founder and the bassist of Mötley Crüe, has posted an exceptional photo from 1982 in which he writes out a Mötley Crüe setlist, but, the year he said confused the minds of his fans.
Sixx has shared a throwback picture of himself that he stated as taken in 1982 when he was contemplating and working on a setlist for the show. He asked his fans if they see any rare gems on there and which song he wrote was a cover song that Mötley Crüe never recorded.
However, Sixx’s latest post caused confusion for some careful fans. Nikki Sixx said about the year the photo taken that it was 1982, yet, the list that appears consists of the song ‘Looks That Kill‘, which was released in 1983 on the band’s second album ‘Shout at the Devil.’
The fans of Sixx argued in the comments about the date Nikki wrote and asked if the song came later or not. Although some of them agreed that Nikki Sixx might have stated the year wrong, a few ones said that Mötley Crüe already had the song then.
After it was released within the album ‘Shout at the Devil’, ‘Looks That Kill‘, written by Sixx, spent 10 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States, peaking at the numbers 54 and 12 on the ‘Mainstream Rock Tracks.’ The band played the song live for the first time on October 31, 1982, at the Concord Pavilion in Concord, CA.
Here is what Nikki Sixx said in his latest post that led argument:
“Writing out a Mötley Crüe setlist in 1982. See any rare gems on there? And which song was a cover song that we never recorded? Photo by Don Adkins 🤘🏽”
Here is what a fan, whose name is Tommy, said in his comment:
“‘Looks That Kill’ in 81. Wow. I thought it came later.”
Another fan replied the comment above and said:
“He might have for the year wrong. The left side of the pic says 1982. Still early though.”
A fan, whose name is Matt, reacted against them and said:
“They already had ‘Looks That Kill’ then.”
