Motley Crue notched a top-10 debut on the Billboard 200 chart with their soundtrack for “The Dirt”

Congratulations are in order for the ’80s metal guys of Motley Crue. The band has notched their ninth Top-10 album with the soundtrack for their just-released biopic, “The Dirt.”

The soundtrack has entered the Billboard 200 chart at No 10 with a grand total of 30,000 equivalent album units, with 15,000 of those traditional album sales. The soundtrack is the band’s ninth top-10 album and their first top-10 showing in more than a decade.

“The Dirt” soundtrack features three new, original songs:  “Ride with the Devil,” “Crash and Burn” and “The Dirt (Est. 1981)” featuring rapper Machine Gun Kelly, who portrays drummer Tommy Lee in the movie. The set also include a collection of Crue chart-toppers, such as “Kickstart My Heart,” “Dr. Feelgood,” and “Home Sweet Home.”

“The Dirt” is available for streaming now via Netflix.

On a separate Crue topic, last weekend, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony took place, an honor the Crue has yet to experience. Bass player Nikki Sixx recently told Kerrang! that the guys of Motley Crue, at one point, were “told by the Hall of Fame that we would never get in, because of how we’ve acted.” After watching the band’s wild antics depicted in “The Dirt,” fans likely know what he means.
