Mötley Crüe’s co-founder and bassist, Nikki Sixx, recently posted a tweet on his Twitter account and congratulated AC/DC‘s increasing success while praising the everlasting importance of rock culture and adding that ‘The Dirt’ has also achieved critical acclaim.
As you probably know, the 17th album of the legendary AC/DC named ‘PWR/UP‘ was released approximately ten days ago and it had become the Number 1 Best-Seller on Amazon just in a couple of days.
Now, it has increased its success even more and has become the Number 1 ranking album on Billboard charts. Their new album has been highly successful and it has already reached 117,000 sales in the United States.
Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx wanted to refer to this success and appreciate the fact that rock and metal music never ceases to impress people. He mentioned that ‘every-time the trend chasers count rock music out it comes back with a sucker punch.’
In order to further support his argument, he stated that ‘The Dirt,’ the American biographical comedy-drama film about Mötley Crüe which was released in 2019, also achieved critical acclaim and that 70 million people enjoyed their movie.
It seems like AC/DC’s current success has encouraged Nikki Sixx to consider the future of rock and metal music, and there’s no doubt that the success ‘The Dirt’ reached represents people’s undying love and interest in rock and metal music.
Here’s what Nikki Sixx said in his tweet:
“AC/DC goes number 1 on the Billboard charts. Every-time the trend chasers count rock music out it comes back with a sucker punch.🥊 Congratulations 70 million people also saw ‘The Dirt.'”
