Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx has revealed in a new interview with Classic Rock that the band's upcoming Netflix biopic The Dirt does not attempt in any way to present a censored version of the band's often raunchy past.
Sixx explained, "Netflix said, ‘Make the movie that reflects the book — and Jeff (Tremaine, director) is, like, ‘I'm into punk rock and heavy metal and I want to make this movie of that book.’ Everybody right out of the box was just, ‘Go for it!’
The bassist added, “It was really important for us not to whitewash anything over. We know that there were scenes in NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton that were deleted because they just didn't want to be portrayed that way — and I don’t know if they sugar-coated anything in the Queen movie. With us, you've got four outrageous characters and it was important we didn’t pull any punches."
The Dirt will premiere on Netflix on March 22nd. The soundtrack will arrive the same day and features a string of Crue classics, as well as three new songs and a cover of Madonna's "Like A Virgin." The first of the new tunes, "The Dirt (Est. 1981)," was released last week.
