The buzz has been building around Mötley Crüe biopic The Dirt, which stars Machine Gun Kelly as drummer Tommy Lee. Last month, MGK and Mötley Crüe dropped their collab track, “The Dirt (Est. 1981)” on Sex Pistols’ guitarist Steve Jones show “Jonesy’s Jukebox”. Now, it looks like we won’t have to wait too much longer for another new track from the band!
Nikki Sixx took to Twitter to reveal to fans that they could expect some new music this Friday.
“The band has a new song for you next Friday.”

The Mötley Crüe Twitter ended up retweeting Sixx’s post, adding a sunglasses emoji.

But the big question is, what song will it be?
The band released “All Bad Things” in 2015, marking their final single ahead of their last tour. Sixx continues on to explain he had about eight tracks he had been working on that weren’t necessarily meant for the band, including some with John 5.
“I had these ideas, and Tommy said he had a bunch of ideas and Mick Mars had some ideas, and we kind of just started putting them together. We ended up with nine songs all called ‘The Dirt.’”
They eventually narrowed it down to three songs, and they chose “The Dirt (Est. 1981)” one as the first single where “the lyrics explain it all.” Sixx revealed there will be three other new tracks coming out at a later date, which, according to the soundtrack announcement, will include “Ride With The Devil,” “Crash And Burn” and “Like A Virgin.”
Mötley Crüe teased their “Like A Virgin” Madonna cover late last month, stating that it would pay homage to Metallica. Maybe we’ll finally get to hear that nod to Metallica this Friday? Or maybe the band will drop “Crash And Burn” or “Ride With The Devil” instead?
The Dirt hits Netflix March 22, and you can check out the trailer below.
