Although bands like Bon Jovi and Def Leppard have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, heavier and metal bands have been overlooked at induction time, and Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx weighed in about it.
In a recent interview with Loudwire, Sixx suggested that their induction would likely never happen. He said, “I was actually doing an interview with Tommy Lee a couple of weeks ago, and we were asked if we would ever play together again. And Tommy said, ‘I don’t know. Maybe if we got into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame or something, we could dust off a couple of our old classics.’ I was, like, ‘Really?’ And he said, ‘Why not?’ But we don’t have any plans because we were told by the Hall of Fame that we would never get in, because of how we’ve acted, so that’s kind of it.”
As far as potentially playing a show together, Sixx says – there have been no conversations about that, not even a one-off show.
However, the band did record some new music to accompany The Dirt film release, which is out now via Netflix.
