We all have those photos. The ones that make us think of the good times, and maybe even laugh out loud at how things used to be.
As some of you may know, we recently wrapped up our #MotleyMemory Sweepstakes asking fans to submit their favorite Mötley Crüe memories and enter for a chance to win a trip to New York for one of the band’s final shows. Considering Tommy Lee and company have been around for more than three decades, you can only imagine how many big hair photos we received. It was so awesome that we couldn’t resist sharing a few of our favorite submissions. So let’s throw it back. Wayyyyy back!
“This was me in 1980-something. Man, how I wish I could go back in time. I would listen to Motley Crüe rock out. It’s all about rock n roll!” – Harris S.
“Tommy and I.” – Dawn G.
“Circa 1982 Rockin out to Mötley Crüe at the park!” – Deborah L.
“This picture was from 1986. I was in a typical 80’s band…as you can tell. I have the spandex to prove it.” – Richard T.
“When I went to Berlin to see Mötley Crüe, my parents were unaware of it. On the way there (by train from Italy) an 18 wheeler full of potatoes got [stuck on] the rails and lost most of the potatoes on the tracks. Me and my friend sprung to action and started picking up all the potatoes and throwing them back in the truck. We were stuck for 2 hrs waiting for someone to move that truck. When we got to Berlin the show was amazing!!!” – Veronica Z.
“Our teen pic before going to A Day on the Green concert in the Bay Area with Mötley Crüe!!!! We were big fans! Loved Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee!” – Genevieve B.
“This is a Christmas Eve sometime in the 80’s. I got concert tickets, and my little brother got some toy. It took him another few years to find his love of Mötley Crüe.” – Brandy L.
“Got the 80’s hair going, can’t really see the leather pants too well in the shot, getting ready to head out to a Mötley Crüe show #MötleyMemory.” – Cindy H.
“We were about to [go] to a Beer Fest in Heidelberg Germany in 83. We thought we were bad, & decided to design our clothes like The Crüe. We were 13…It was a blast!” – Brian K.
“Our big hair days!!! Before the kids…all the great partying! Would love to meet Mötley Crüe!! This would be a dream come true.” – John M.
See? Wasn’t that fun? Did it bring back memories of how you dressed in your past life? Thank YOU, fans, for letting us walk down memory lane with you. And congrats to our recent Mötley Crüe Photo Sweepstakes Flyaway winner Brian A. Below is a pic he took at a Mötley Crüe show a few years ago. He was six rows away from the front. Pretty sweet spot to stand in!
