    After a lengthy tour in support of the breakthrough SHOUT AT THE DEVIL, Motley Crue almost called it quits. In December of 1984, singer Vince Neil was involved in a D.W.I. car crash that killed his friend Razzle (drummer for the promising Hanoi Rocks) and injured two passengers. The other Crue members drowned their sorrows in drink and drugs but somehow managed to write and record 1985's highly anticipated third album, THEATRE OF PAIN. Whereas SHOUT was a heavy metal album, THEATRE returned to the glam stylings of the debut TOO FAST FOR LOVE but was musically more experimental.
    THEATRE may not have been as strong as SHOUT, but the album proved another platinum-plus smash, spawning two immensely popular MTV videos-a rollicking cover of The Brownsville Station's "Smoking in the Boys Room" and the tender, piano-based ballad "Home Sweet Home." THEATRE solidified Motley Crue's standing as one of the world's top metal bands. While the album contains more filler than usual, tracks such as "City Boy Blues," "Louder Than Hell," and "Raise Your Hands to Rock" are up to par with earlier Crue anthems.
