I have been listening to the music of Motley Crue since the early '80s when they were abusing substances and trashing hotels and staging publicity stunts to get their name in the news. Over the years they've released nine studio albums, a couple of live albums, 30 singles, three box sets and more.

Today is lead singer Vince Neil's birthday; he turns 55 years old. He's put on a few pounds over the years, but he proved he could still belt them out with the best them as they wrapped up their Farewell Tour on December 31, 2015, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. If you don't believe me, you can check it out for yourself by picking up their DVD Motley Crue: The End Live in Los Angeles.

To help celebrate his birthday I decided to pick through some of their past releases and try to highlight some of their lesser-known singles. So kick back, relax, crank up your tiny computer speakers and enjoy.

    I have always liked this single for its feeling of raw power. I always crank this one up when I hear it. It peaked at No. 63 on the Hot 100.
