Mötley Crüe release Too Fast for Love
Too Fast For Love is the debut record of American heavy metal band Mötley Crüe; 900 copies were released in November 1981 on the band's Leathür Records label.
Elektra Records signed the band the following year, at which point the album was remixed and partially re-recorded. This re-release, with a different track listing and slightly different artwork (e.g., red lettering on the cover and a different interior photgraph of the band), has become the standard version from which all later reissues derive. The original mix of the album remained unreleased on CD until 2003, when they were included in the Music to Crash Your Car to: Vol. 1 compilation.
While the album only reached number 77 on the Billboard 200 album chart in the US, it would ultimately reach platinum status. Musically, the album mixes elements of punk rock, glam rock, and heavy metal. The album is the 12th greatest Glam Metal album according to DigitalDreamDoor.
The song "Live Wire" was released as a single for the album.
The album cover is a parody of The Rolling Stones' album Sticky Fingers.
