Nikki Sixx Confirms Mötley Crüe Track With Machine Gun Kelly For 'The Dirt' Soundtrack Is Coming
The upcoming Mötley Crüe Netflix biopic, The Dirt, will bring the band back to life thanks to four new Bob Rock-produced songs, but that's not all. Bassist Nikki Sixx revealed in a Twitter Q&A with fans on Wednesday (Feb. 6) that among those fresh tracks from the metal group that retired from the road in 2015 is a collaboration with rapper Machine Gun Kelly, who plays Crüe drummer Tommy Lee in the film.
When a fan asked if there would be a collaboration with MGK, since he "makes his living in music too," Sixx replied, "Yes. New song with MGK is coming really soon. We wrote the song for #TheDirtMovie."
Sixx did not reveal the name of the song that will accompany the film, due out on March 22 on Netflix, with Daniel Webber (The Punisher) slipping into singer Vince Neil's spandex, Douglas Booth (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) as Sixx and Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones) as guitarist Mick Mars. The film was directed by Jackass director/producer Jeff Tremaine.
Asked to describe the new songs, Sixx responded, "Heavy Crüe."
He also confirmed that all the new songs will feature the "original" Crüe members, with MGK appearing on the first single alongside Neil. "and us..... THEY FUCKING CRUSH TOO."
