Top 11 Metal Albums of the 1980s (11 music items)
"Before the hairspray, eye liner and pop metal took an even bigger vice grip hold of Vince, Tommy, Nikki and Mick, Motley Crue had serious snarl, which the four-piece established with 'Shout at the Devil.' The album is rife with nasty songs like 'Looks That Kill' and the title track. This album was the band at its most pissed off and least affected by things like fame and strippers. They were on the precipice of hedonism, but this was their last vestige of slightly unfettered rock."
