Nikki Sixx Reacts To Bad Reviews About Mötley Crüe

Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx recently let his followers know what he and his bandmates thought about the bad reviews they have received over the years as he reacted to an old newspaper review on Twitter.

Being commercially successful in the rock industry might mean fame and wealth; however, without a doubt, it also has its disadvantages. Sixx and Mötley Crüe also couldn’t escape from harsh criticism. So, when a user shared an old newspaper review made in the early ’80s, the bassist decided to say a few words about it.

The review, written by Teresa Mazzitelli of Edmonton Journal, stated that Mötley Crüe lacked authentic and original music as the critic expected the band to fail and become a long-forgotten band, lost in music history. Sixx reacted to the review, saying that he and his bandmates had been laughing over these reviews over the four decades since the band debuted.

They didn’t bother them, as the rocker stated that Mötley loved bad reviews and hoped they would always be around. For Sixx, this harsh criticism only proved that the band was right where it wished to be. So, reading negative reviews about the band’s music or the band members’ professional lives was no bother.

Sixx’s tweet regarding the negative reviews Mötley Crüe received over the years:

“We’ve actually sat around and laughed out loud reading reviews over the last 42 years. We love them. We hope bad reviews never go away. It just proves again that we’re right on target.”

So, it’s evident that the rocker has no bad feelings about any negative review the act might receive, and it is safe to say that his Mötley Crüe bandmates are also on the same page. Sixx pointed out that harsh criticism always reminded them that they were on the right path, so he hoped they would always be there for him to read.
