Motley Crue sparked a subgenre of music in the '80s with their radio-friendly hair metal, but they're just as well known today for their unabashedly hedonistic lifestyle. Despite some ups and downs over the years -- singer Vince Neil was involved in a fatal car accident while intoxicated, bassist Nikki Sixx was temporarily declared dead after overdosing on heroin -- they sobered up for their biggest album ever, 1989's 'Dr. Feelgood,' and managed to survive through the grunge-focused '90s with a couple of albums. The Crue's original lineup -- Neil, Sixx, drummer Tommy Lee and guitarist Mick Mars -- has pretty much remained intact for most of their career (Neil and Lee temporarily bowed out of the group for brief periods). In 2014, the band embarked on a farewell tour that it swears will really be final. We'll see.
