Motley Crue took the world by storm just as MTV was cutting its teeth. By providing the band with a platform to reach out to metal fans across the country, the network helped propel Motley Crue to superstardom.
Crue’s videos also played a big role in forming the image of ’80s hair metal. Somehow, they made spandex and audacious makeup look masculine. Well, kind of. Some videos, like ‘Looks That Kill,’ featured crazy settings, while others, like ‘Live Wire,’ contained occultish imagery that helped fuel the Satan-worshipping scare of the ’80s. Noisecreep brings you this collection of 10 Best Motley Crue Videos throughout the years.
'Looks That Kill'
'Looks That Kill' has it all: leather pants, big hair, spandex, pentagrams, pointy guitars and scantily-clad women -- lots of scantily-clad women. The band brings these women, who are some form of chain-wearing barbarians, the gift of fire and heavy metal. The story climaxes with a battle inside a spike-filled room, where the band eventually defeats their female nemesis.
