This year saw Netflix's The Dirt biopic result in a huge surge in sales for the band.

According to a press release in March this year, the 80s hair metal icons now witnessed their record sales increase by 200%, while streams for Mötley Crüe music's has increased by 700%.

The rockers saw their two albums in the iTunes Chart, with Mötley Crüe - Greatest Hits and Mötley Crüe - The Dirt Soundtrack both sitting in the top 10.

To cap off the band's success, the warts-and-all memoir, which was first released in 2001, returned to the top of the Amazon book charts.

Speaking about the biopic, Sixx said: “In the film we show painful examples of domestic violence, DUI, manslaughter, drug overdose and the loss of a child. We couldn’t possibly have crammed everything from a 430-page book into an hour and 50-minute movie, but we felt we achieved our objective of showing the downside of sex drugs and rock and roll”.
