Watch Kids React After Hearing Motley Crue’s ‘Dr. Feelgood’ for the First Time
Mötley Crüe have never been known for their subtle lyrics, but you can still listen to their 1989 hit "Dr. Feelgood" without picking up on the song's real subject matter — especially if you're a kid hearing it for the first time.
Loudwire rounded up just such a pint-sized panel for the latest edition of their Kids That Rock series, playing a portion of the song for a handful of impressionable youth and asking them to take their best guesses at figuring out the deeper meaning of lines like "He’s the one they call Dr. Feelgood / He’s the one that makes ya feel all right / He’s the one they call Dr. Feelgood / He’s gonna be your Frankenstein / I’ve got one thing you’ll understand / He’s not what you’d call a glamorous man / Got one thing that’s easily understood / He’s the one they call Dr. Feelgood."
To help guide the kids on their journey of understanding, Loudwire posed a handful of questions to the panel, asking these adorable Crüe rookies to weigh in on who Dr. Feelgood might be, what he looks like, why people would want to see him and — most importantly — whether they think whales have doctors. As always, plenty of the answers are pretty funny, but some of them might surprise you too — and you can watch the whole thing right here by hitting "play" on the video at the top of this post.
