Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx posted a picture of himself while signing a guitar on his Instagram account and impressed his fans by sharing the lyrics of an old Crüe song, ‘Poison Apples,’ which he wrote by himself.

The legendary heavy metal band Mötley Crüe formed in 1981 by bassist Nikki Sixx, drummer Tommy Lee, lead guitarist Mick Mars and lead singer Vince Neil. Throughout their successful yet challenging career, the band achieved seven platinum or multi-platinum certification.

Back in 1992, Mötley Crüe members started working on their sixth album, however, during the recordings band’s iconic frontman Vince Neil had some conflicts with the rest of the band members which led to his departure from Mötley Crüe. Later, Nikki Sixx invited the Scream’s lead singer John Corabi to replace Neil for the self-titled album that they had been working on.

‘Mötley Crüe’ album, which was known as the band’s only album featuring John Corabi, was released on March 15, 1994. All the lyrics in the album was written by Corabi and Nikki Sixx, who is known for his fascinating skills for songwriting.

Recently on Instagram, Sixx posted a picture of himself in which he was signing a guitar, possibly to donate for an auction. In the caption of his post, Nikki wrote ‘some old Crüe lyrics’ which belong to the song titled ‘Poison Apples’ from the self-titled album of Mötley Crüe.

As you may know, the lyrics of ‘Poison Apples’ were about the decadent Rock ‘N Roll lifestyle that Mötley Crüe was famous for living. In the comment section of his post, Sixx’s fans also paid respect to the iconic musician by mentioning what a great songwriter he is. Most of the fans stated that the ‘Mötley Crüe’ album was actually their favorite among the other albums of the band and appreciated the songwriting skills of Nikki.

Here is what Nikki Sixx wrote in the caption of his post:

Some old CRÜE lyrics

Took a Greyhound bus down to Heart Attack and Vine
With a fistful of dreams and dimes
So far out I didn’t know that I was in
Had a taste for a life of slime
When push came to shove
Music was the drug
And the band always got to play
Sex smack rock roll mainline overdose
Man we lived it night and day
We love our mott the Hoople
It kept us all so enraged
And you loved us and you loved us and you hated us because
We’re so fucking beautiful
Pretty little poison apples
See the scars tattooed on our face
It’s our disgrace
Pretty little poison apples
Mama said now don’t ya walk this way
Just find some faith
Tabloid sleaze just maggots on their knees
Diggin’ in the dirt for slag
Moonshine, strychnine, speedball, shootin’ lines
Anything to push their rags
Still we love our mott the Hoople
It keeps us so enraged
And you love us, then you hate us, then you love us
We’re so fucking beautiful
Pretty little poison apples
See the scars tattooed on our face
It’s your disgrace
Pretty little poison apples
Mama said now don’t you walk this way
Just find some faith
Blueprints for disaster
Better not push me cause I’ll bring you to your knees
Blueprints for disaster
Better not love me cause I’ll bring you to your knees
Pretty little poison apples”
