Based on Mötley Crüe's 2001 best-selling autobiography, THE DIRT is an unflinching story about sex, drugs, rock 'n roll, fame, and the high price of excess. Director Jeff Tremaine shows us just how Nikki Sixx (Douglas Booth), Mick Mars (Iwan Rheon), Tommy Lee (Colson Baker), and Vince Neil (Daniel Webber) took Mötley Crüe from the Sunset Strip to the world stage, and what it meant to become the world's most notorious rock band.

When Mötley Crüe play their first gig at the Forum in Inglewood, CA, the exterior color of the arena (behind the white columns) is painted blue. The Fabulous Forum was actually painted "California sunset red" at that time and was repainted blue only after Wayne Gretzky was traded to the Los Angeles Kings in the late 80's to early 90's. Furthermore, the band did not perform at the Forum until 1985. See more
The 1980s, the worst fucking decade in human history. Preppies and keyboards, stupid haircuts, Jazzercise, and "Just Say No". It all fucking sucked! So what do you do when you're born in the wrong time? You make it yours. And that's what we did to the Sunset Strip.
