Mötley Crüe was one of the first and most influential hair metal bands of the '80s. After signing to Elektra Records, the band released Shout at the Devil in 1983. Their 1985 album Theatre of Pain made them stars; the first hit power ballad to be aired on MTV, "Home Sweet Home" became the channel's most-requested music video for four months straight. Following a stint in rehab, the band returned in 1989 with the chart-topping Dr. Feelgood, which spawned numerous hits. Mötley Crüe's career took a downturn thereafter, but they continued to court controversy with a series of well-publicized mishaps. ~ Barry Weber, Rovi
