50 Years, 50 Albums 1989: Mötley Crüe ‘Dr. Feelgood’

The Crüe hit the scene in 1981 Los Angeles and really kicked off the Heavy Hair Metal genre with their first four albums. It wasn’t until 1989’s Dr. Feelgood that launched them into the stratosphere. At this point the band was getting sober which certainly made legendary producer Bob Rock’s job a lot easier. (Watch the Mötley Crüe film “The Dirt”). It was their biggest album to date with over 6 million copies sold and five videos made. The band attributes the success of this album due to their quest for sobriety. It worked!
