Motley Crue premiered a brand new song named ‘All Bad Things’ during the opening show of their highly anticipated farewell tour, and you can watch video of their 4th of July performance of the track right here.
Obviously, this isn’t a band endorsed, audiophile-quality recording, but even in such rough form there’s enough to make us very curious to hear the studio version of this track. ‘All Bad Things’ — the Crue’s first new music since 2012’s ‘Sex‘ single — features an extremely catchy, sing-along chorus: “All bad things must end / All bad things must die / Even the Devil’s gotta pay for his crimes / ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.”
It also boasts lyrics that once again reinforce just how serious the band are about their plans to retire from touring. For example, “It’s been one hell of a ride / it’s been one hell of a night / It’s been a damn good life / This ain’t farewell it’s goodbye.” Or to be even more blunt, “Let’s pull the plug on this before it starts to rot.”
Motley Crue have made it quite clear that the recording of ‘All Bad Things’ doesn’t mean they have any plans to record a brand new studio album. “We’ve written some songs,” bassist Nikki Sixx explained earlier this year. “…[But] if you’re this kind of band at this stage of your career, you can’t be played on Active Rock; if you’ve been around for more than fifteen years, you’re classic rock, but classic rock radio doesn’t play new music. You just think, ‘f—, man, this sucks.’”
