Mötley Crüe – ”New Tattoo” 19 år.

New Tattoo is the eighth studio album by the American heavy metal band Mötley Crüe released in 2000. Artistically, New Tattoo shows the band returning to the earlier musical style that gave them commercial success in the 1980s and early 1990s. This is the only album by the band not to feature drummer Tommy Lee, who left the band a year before, and was replaced by former Ozzy Osbourne drummer Randy Castillo on the album. The songs ”Hell on High Heels”, which charted at number 13 on the Mainstream rock charts, ”New Tattoo” and ”Treat Me Like the Dog I Am” were released as singles for the album. The album artwork was inspired by the cover of Bruce Dickinson’s album Tattooed Millionaire, whose title track is said to be about Dickinson’s wife cheating on him with bassist Nikki Sixx, as revealed in Mötley Crüe’s biography The Dirt.
