Mötley Crüe take an animated ride through their debauched 1980s heyday of wine and wine and wine and exotic dancers in the new video for “Ride With the Devil.” The gritty clip for the newly recorded song from the soundtrack to the Netflix Crüe biopic The Dirt was directed by former Heavy Metal magazine editor and writer Rantz Hoseley.
The lyric visual perfectly captures the big hair and little worries vibe of the band’s salad years by taking classic photos of the group and giving them a retro, hand-drawn feel while sprinkling in flashing lightning and images of actual devils and other assorted demons blazing across the screen.
After announcing the end of their touring days in Dec. 2015, the band went back into the studio in 2018 with producer Bob Rock to work on four new songs for the The Dirt soundtrack, which also included “The Dirt (Est. 1981),” “Crash and Burn” and a cover of Madonna’s “Like a Virgin.” A 30th anniversary special edition of the band’s 1989 Dr. Feelgood album is due out on Nov. 29.
