Third studio album from Los Angeles' Mötley Crüe. Theatre Of Pain was originally recorded in 1985 in the wake of front man Vince Neil's arrest for manslaughter on a drunk driving charge. The crash in question resulted in the death of Hanoi Rocks drummer Nicholas "Razzle" Dingley. Mötley Crüe was notorious for its drug abuse, but Neil was able to skate through his conviction by spending 30 days in jail and paying a huge fine. Theatre Of Pain is dedicated to Razzle. Includes the songs: "Home Sweet Home" a power ballad that would go on to spawn many imitators, and a cover of Brownsville Station's "Smokin' in the Boys Room" which gave the band their first first Top 20 hit. Ten tracks in all. Released by Mötley Records on 180 gram white vinyl.
