Motley Crue vs. The Cult – Classic Cage Match
Motley Crue are now one win away from the Classic Cage Match Hall of Fame with their high-energy rocker ‘Wild Side.’ The 1987 classic just bested Poison’s ‘Talk Dirty to Me’ to earn its fourth victory in a row. But do they have what it takes to complete the run? Another challenger from 1987 will have a say so in that.
In 1987, The Cult were beginning to emerge as a hard rock presence with their third album, ‘Electric.’ And the song that really took off that year was ‘Love Removal Machine,’ a track featuring the distinctive powerhouse vocals of Ian Astbury and signature guitar licks from Billy Duffy. In the year’s since, it’s become one of the band’s most beloved tracks and has been a staple at rock radio.
So will you vote for Motley Crue’s ‘Wild Side’ or have The Cult’s ‘Love Removal Machine’ start a Classic Cage Match streak of their own? Crank it up and listen to both songs in the players below. Then vote for your favorite in the poll.
