Childhood Ruined

Digging through The Dirt

April 16, 2019

Your hosts consume The Dirt by Mötley Crüe and talk about the thoughts and emotions that arise when listening their music, which was created by guys who tormented, injured, murdered and raped (according to Nikki in the book version) people. We talk about our first exposure to Mötley Crüe in the 1980s, and how their image was cultivated for maximum shock value. We try to figure out the best way to approach artists that have complicated and troubled behaviors, and wonder if you can - or even should - separate the art from the artist.
