Listen to Motley Crue cover ‘Like A Virgin’ by Madonna for the soundtrack of their upcoming band biopic film.
If you dare, take a listen to the Madonna cover below ahead of the Motley Crue film’s official release on Netflix.
The song is one of four new tracks Motley Crue recorded for the film. Speaking to Billboard about the ‘Like A Virgin’ cover, band member Nikki Sixx said at first he thought it was “a really horrible idea.”
The film is directed toward bringing the debaucherous behavior recounted in the Crue’s memoirs to life.
Cast Of Characters: Machine Gun Kelly as Tommy Lee, Iwan Rheon as Mick Mars, Douglas Booth as Nikki Sixx and Daniel Webber as Vince Neil
Outside of the main cast members, you can expect to see Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson playing record label executive Tom Zutaut and some less familiar faces playing big stars. Christian Gehring, whose filmography so far is mostly made up of tiny parts on US TV shows, will play David Lee Roth, while Ozzy Osbourne will be depicted by Tony Cavalero, who appeared in the School Of Rock TV series.

“I’ve managed The Scorpions, Bon Jovi, Skid Row, Kiss… but I have never been through what Motley Crue put me through,” says Motley Crue manager Doc McGhee ( played by David Costabile) as the carnage unfolds.
“Given the band’s reputation, it was weird to hear Vince Neil singing ‘like a virgin’”. -- Nikki Sixx
When asked whether Madonna knew about Motley Crüe’s cover, Nikki said, “I don’t know. She will soon, I imagine. Maybe we can get her in the video.”

During the promotion of the film, Nikki Sixx apologized for a rape story that was published in the band’s memoirs of the same name, on which the film is based.
“I have no clue why it’s in there other than I was outta my head and it’s possibly greatly embellished or I made it up,” -- “Those words were irresponsible on my part. I am sorry.”
