Mötley Crüe ‘Shout at the Devil’ – Released on This Day in History
Mötley Crüe: Awesome day in history for the band. Slight back story. Those of you who remember the original vinyl version was sold in all black with a glossy pentagram on the front. The photos were all inside and that’s how we designed it. Later the record label changed it to put the photos inside on the cover for the cassette and later the CD. It was not what we wanted, and I remember being pretty bummed. We wanted what our original vision was for the artwork. That was the beginning of many years of fighting with our label…..none the less. We were and are proud of this album. It was a natural step for us after Too Fast For Love.
… and on this day in 1983, our 2nd album “Shout At The Devil” was released… 🏴☠️👺
“But in the seasons of wither, We’ll stand and deliver
Be strong and laugh and Shout, Shout, Shout…”
Me and my friend John took a chance and went to see Motley in Chicago at the Aragon Ballroom for one of their first Shout tours. They jammed do hard, with great effects, like Tommy’s drum set built on a mountain from hell. We were hooked on the Crue from that day on! What a great experience!
