Mötley Crüe release Theatre of Pain
Theatre of Pain is the third album by the heavy metal band Mötley Crüe, released on June 21, 1985.
Released in the aftermath of singer Vince Neil's arrest for manslaughter on a drunk driving charge, the album marked a step away from the traditional heavy metal sound of Shout at the Devil towards a more glam metal influenced record, in both sound and image.
Theatre of Pain contains the hits "Smokin' in the Boys Room" and the power ballad "Home Sweet Home". The album reached #6 in the US charts, and #36 in the UK. The album was certified quadruple platinum by the RIAA on June 5, 1995.
Theatre of Pain is dedicated to Hanoi Rocks former member Nicholas "Razzle" Dingley, who was killed in the car crash that resulted in Vince Neil's arrest.
Save Our Souls is featured in the italian horror film Demons which is produced by Dario Argento.
