Mötley Crüe - Saints of Los Angeles (Official Music Video)


Motley Crue released this through the video game Rock Band simultaneously with its single release. They were the first band to release a brand new single through a music video game.

The track features backing vocals from Josh Todd (Buckcherry), Jacoby Shaddix (Papa Roach), James Michael (Sixx:A.M) and Chris Brown (Trapt).

The album follows the story of the band's best-selling 2001 autobiography The Dirt. Bassist Nikki Sixx explained:

"Mick Mars and I started writing about four months ago. I had done a record with James Michael and DJ Ash for my side project, and we had such an amazing chemistry together that me and Mick and James and DJ were just on a songwriting mission from hell. It was amazing. We brought in another friend called Marty Frederickson. Doing the whole Heroin Diaries project (2007 Sixx:A.M album) really helped me to focus on a specific issue. Like, instead of writing a love song, make it about a moment. Make it about the kiss. So for this, what we really wanted to do is tke the concept of the autobiography, The Dirt, and make it into songs. I was really trying lyrically to do that, and to work so closely with Mick and really develop the phenomenal songs working with James and Marty and DJ Ash."

The track features backing vocals from Josh Todd (Buckcherry), Jacoby Shaddix (Papa Roach), James Michael (Sixx:A.M) and Chris Brown (Trapt).

Lyrics

Tonight... There's gonna be a fight So if you need a place to go Got a two room slum A mattress and a gun And the cops don't never show So come right in Cause everybody sins Welcome to the scene of the crime You want it? Believe it We got it if you need it The devil is a friend of mine If you think it's crazy You ain't seen a thing Just wait until we're going down in flames [Chorus:] We are...we are the saints We signed our life away Doesn't matter what you think We're gonna do it anyway We are...we are the saints One day you will confess And Pray to the saints of Los Angeles. Redline...trippin' on a land mine Sippin' at the Troubadour Girl's passed out naked in the back lounge Everybody's gonna score She's all jacked up She's down on her luck You want it, you need it The devil's gonna feed it Don't you say it's crazy You don't' know a thing Just wait until we're going down in flames [Chorus] [Solo] Give it up give it up Give it up give it up Give it up give it up Give it up give it up Give it up give it up
