Yeah, it's definitely one of the bands I'd put in that category....but there are more bands than Crüe where the fame doesn't reflect the quality of the music/songs.

I've had the exact same experience as you MG. I got both "Shout" and the debut as christmas presents from my mom....on the same Christmas. I played the hell out of those two albums and I simply loved everything about the band.

I was really disappointed in "Theatre" though, but I really tried to love it.

Now, looking back and playing all Crüe albums again, I can only agree with you that the quality in the playing and songwriting just isn't very impressive. I realized this about 10 years ago when I went back to them and I can still listen to those first two albums because it brings out great nostalgic feelings/memories....but the rest, I can easily live without for the rest of my life.

I've listened to so many bands now later on where the feelings have been the total opposite, where I can easily see why some bands were successful and stood out....and in some cases they don't get the credit they should. Mötley isn't one of those. If I heard those albums for the first time today, I'm certain I'd think they were crap. :-)
