Best Motley Crue Albums

The Top Ten
1 Shout at the Devil

I just found this album at a local used record store and had to buy it, as it took me back to 1983 all over again. When I first got this album at age 14, my parents were shocked by its pentagram and the inner pictures of the band, but to me, it was great. This is the album I think of as the definitive Crüe album.

It launched their career for sure and, in my opinion, is their best work. After this album, the band was torn apart by drug use and infighting, but for that brief time in the early eighties, they rocked it.

Crue at their best! This was the time when they really were a heavy metal band, no messing around and just pure metal. With classics like the title track, "Looks That Kill," "Too Young to Fall in Love," "Ten Seconds to Love," etc., you know you're in for a treat.

2 Dr. Feelgood

Most people don't like changes. Is AC/DC not AC/DC without Bon Scott? Is Deep Purple not Deep Purple without Ian Gillan and replacing him with Coverdale/Hughes? Don't be fooled. John Corabi is a much better singer, guitarist, and composer than Neil!

Every song on this album is effing great! Yes, I love "Kickstart My Heart" and "Dr. Feelgood," but "She Goes Down" has got to be my favorite. Although, every song on that album could be a hit single!

This is definitely their best album. The Self Titled Album Motley Crue is definitely their worst album. It's not Motley Crue without Vince Neil.

3 Too Fast for Love

In my book, this is the first and most creative work from Crue, totally different from everything around in those days. It sounds like Cheap Trick meets Sweet meets early NWOBHM, really impressive.

Granted I love every album on this list except for the self-titled one, of course, but Too Fast for Love was extremely edgy.

Great songs from a young and hungry Crue. This album really shows where Nikki's influences lie, and the music is top notch. My favorite Crue album.

4 Girls Girls Girls
5 Theatre of Pain

This album has the best Motley song on it, Louder Than Hell.

Theatre of Pain, a glam hard rock album, best from Crue.

My second favorite Motley Crue album, my favorite is Dr. Feelgood.

6 Saints of Los Angeles

It's not the best, but it's definitely better than the Corabi Album, New Tattoo, and Generation Swine. So basically, it's the best album they've had since Dr. Feelgood. My personal opinion: 1. Feelgood, 2. Shout, 3. Girls, 4. Theater of Pain, 5. Too Fast For Love, 6. Saints, 7. Supersonic (if considered a studio album), 8. New Tat, 9. Swine, 10. Corabi Album.

The title track is pretty good. I don't think any other kickass band has released a song as good as this years after their heyday.

7 Mötley Crüe

This is an amazing album from start to finish. Dr Feelgood had more commercial appeal, but musically, this album is just better. I get why nobody bought it, given the time period and the fact that Vince wasn't on it, but after hearing John sing the old Motley stuff, it makes me cringe to hear Vince try to sing those old songs these days.

The hardest and heaviest Crue album, period. Love Crue (with Vince), my all-time most favorite band, but Crue (with John) is much harder. Love it.

This is one of the most underrated hard rock albums of all time. The only reason it didn't hit big was because Vince Neil wasn't in the band at the time.

8 Generation Swine
9 New Tattoo

This is my third favorite. 1. Too Fast 2. Shout, and then there is this classic. It definitely didn't get the respect it deserves, but the guitar sound is crunchy, Vince sounds great, and Nikki has delivered the best Crüe sleaze since the '80s.
