Mötley Crüe’s The Dirt: First Teaser Released
Update, 10:14 a.m.: Here’s the full trailer! Enjoy.
In case there was any doubt that Mötley Crüe’s accusations of thievery against Kiss this past weekend were a publicity ploy, the band has now released a teaser for the long-anticipated Netflix adaptation of their collective memoir, The Dirt. A full trailer will arrive later today (and we’ll update this post when it does, natch). The teaser doesn’t tell us much, but hey, it’s the first time we’ve seen any footage from this thing, so you’re probably gonna wanna watch it:

In related news, the band’s new single will debut this Thursday, February 21. There’s a contest being held to sit in a Los Angeles radio studio while Sixx debuts the song, if seeing one of your heroes through plate glass is the kind of thing that interests you. The track will reportedly feature rapper Machine Gun Kelly, who plays Tommy Lee in The Dirt.
