93 Motley Crue Motley Crue Mötley Crüe was an American metal band formed in Los Angeles, California on January 17, 1981. The group was founded by bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee, lead vocalist Vince Neil and lead guitarist Mick Mars.

If you are a child of the 80s, rock music is what MTV played. On that basis, this is the perfect rock band. Individually, only one of the players is truly elite (Lee). But their concerts were worth every penny, and their exploits were pure legend. The critics can hate all they like, but the Crue keeps laughing all the way to the bank.

This band is garbage. If you want good music listen to Breaking Benjamin.

Maybe not #1 but defiantly top 10. So how come down here at 99!

Motley crue should be at least in the top 50 best amnerican bands
