Listen: Mötley Crüe Fondle Our Ears With ‘Sex’

Glam metal gods Mötley Crüe have abandoned all attempts at subtlety, releasing their new single ‘Sex’, or as I like to call it ‘SEX’. The song is a passionate anthem, chronicling the plight of the modern day working class against the might of the ubiquitous oppression about sex, the need for sex, and how humanity does indeed “need no lovin”, “no respect”, cause it’s all about, you guessed it, “the sex”.

The single is the first new music the band has released since 2008′s Saints of Los Angeles, and drummer Tommy Lee insists that it “sounds like 2012 and that makes me really happy”, because 2012 is apparently 100% sex, a name I hope the band will give to a new album.


The band will be touring with KISS in the US this summer, increasing the glam metal factor of the country by several orders of magnitude, and quadrupling the demand for eyeliner and hairspray.
