Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx: Satanic Jesus on Tour with KISS in 2012

Nikki Sixx was resurrected – there’s no question about it.

On December 23, 1987, the Mötley Crüe bassist overdosed on heroin and was declared dead for two minutes. Sixx said he had an out-of-body experience during the time when the paramedics were scrambling to save him. He said that he saw a white light and a view of the ambulance from above. After receiving two shots of adrenaline to his heart, Sixx said that he awoke in the hospital. He got a ride home from two female fans, who were shocked to see him alive; he then took more heroin, passed out, and only then decided to enter rehab.

A deep web search revealed no evidence of Jesus Christ ever using heroin, but it seems peculiar that Sixx was resurrected so close to Jesus’ December 25 birthday. Perhaps Sixx was spared so that he could continue to lead the Crüe, one of the last remaining rock bands. The band is set to begin a tour with KISS this July, and the trek is expected to make a lot of money.

But it didn’t always look like Sixx would become an idol to millions. Always an outcast, Sixx was pushed aside by his hard-partying mother. He was a latch-key kid to the nth degree; he bounced around, lived with his grandparents, but never really found a home – until he moved to Hollywood, that is.

There, Sixx found three long-haired apostles to run with. His salvation came in the form of drummer Tommy Lee, guitarist Mick Mars, and singer Vince Neil. Together they became Mötley Crüe, and they successfully converted the entire Sunset Strip to their religion of playing rock music, doing drugs, and having sex with groupies (to the uninitiated: the Sunset Strip is a mile-and-a-half stretch in West Hollywood that is home to rock clubs such as the Whisky a Go Go and Roxy; it was a magnet for all sorts of bad behavior).

Sixx became an idol to many, worshipped by fans as a Johnny Thunders-like character. But Thunders, the New York Dolls guitarist who himself had an appetite for drugs, never broke through to the mainstream like Sixx. The critically-acclaimed Thunders never sold many records with the Dolls; Sixx and Mötley Crüe, however, became drug-addled superheroes.

The Crüe’s debut album, Too Fast for Love (1981), put them on the map. But it was the follow-up album, Shout at the Devil (1983), that commanded attention…from Satan. While recording the record, Sixx had begun reading books on the occult, and some very strange events began to happen. In the Crüe’s 2001 autobiography The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band, which they wrote with Neil Strauss, the band’s A&R representative recalls being at Sixx’s apartment and witnessing knives flying across the room and sticking into the wall. Sixx was also involved in a single-car accident that left him with a dislocated shoulder.

Upon the album’s completion, the plan was to call it “Shout with the Devil.” But the band’s management, however, convinced Sixx to change the name, for his own safety. Sixx obliged, and the album was released as Shout at the Devil.

Shout at the Devil:

Rabid fans brought Sixx fame and fortune. By the mid-1980s, Mötley Crüe could put out any recording and it would sell. Theatre of Pain (1985), for example, contained the hit “Home Sweet Home”; however, Sixx has stated that he barely remembers writing the album, which ended up going multi-platinum.

“Home Sweet Home”:

After the Girls, Girls, Girls (1987) tour and Nikki’s near-death experience, the band cleaned up. Dr. Feelgood was released in 1989, becoming the band’s most successful album to date; Sixx even wrote a song about his overdose, “Kickstart My Heart” and became a television evangelist (note: only one of those things is true).

“Kickstart My Heart”:

The Mayan calendar predicts that the world will end on December 21, 2012, but we here at Cultural Transmogrifier Magazine believe the end of days will happen sometime this summer, during the KISS/Mötley Crüe tour. Get out there and enjoy one of the last remaining spectacles of rock music. And happy Easter.

  1. Omgosh I will never listen to their music again as a Christian I fell like it is not good for me to .. I will pray for them ..

  2. I will agree with you in prayer they have an encounter with Jesus Christ, the one who holds all breath in His hand.
    People play with witchcraft and marvel when they see or feel something but the power of this illegitimate copycat satan is nothing compared to Jesus Christ,
    There is no greater power than love and no greater love than to give your life to save another, that is what Jesus did willingly to restore fallen and separated mankind back to relationship with Him.
    satanism is about pride and hate, using and controlling others, it is weak and cowardly, in comparison Jesus Christ is the complete opposite, full of the greatest power, love.
    Return unto me and I will return unto you.
    There is only one name given among men whereby we can be saved, restored, renewed, healed, delivered, empowered, and reconciled, and that powerful name is Jesus Christ.
    People today are seeking peace, love, security, and purpose and don’t realize what they are missing is God in their lives.
    God didn’t create man to be alone, He didn’t create us to be separated from Him but that is exactly what our son has done.
    Jesus took the punishment, the end result of our sin so that you can be one again reconciled to God but God is not going to kick your door down, He stands at the door and k Ickes but you have to let Him in.
    If you have done all you can do and still feel alone, unfulfilled, or depressed, know that God did not create you to feel this way.
    There is a deep whole in the heart of every human that only He can fill.
    Man tries to fill that void with money, drugs, sex, materials, addictions, but He is the only one who can fill that void.
    You are born into this world with that void, born separated from God but He has made a way for you to get back to Him.
    His name is Jesus, can you hear Him calling you? Can you hear Him knocking on the door of your heart?
    If you hear Him, say this prayer.
    Father, I need you, my life is incomplete, I have tried to fill the void but it is still there.
    I know I have failed in my life, that I have sinned against you, I ask that you forgive me of my sin through the substitutions sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
    I understand that Jesus willingly took the penalty for my sin and that all that come to you through Him will be forgiven and restored back to you.
    I receive Jesus Christ as both my Lord and Saviour and will from this day seek you through your word, the Bible.
    I will also seek you everyday in prayer.
    I surrender my life to you Lord and ask that you heal it.
    In the mighty name of Jesus I make this prayer and confession to you.
    Amen.
    If you have said this prayer, congratulations! Your sins have been forgiven and you can know begin to develop a personal and powerful relationship with God.
    Now God is Spirit, and those that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in Truth.
    What is Spirit? It is who you are on the inside, you are a spirit housed in a body of flesh and bone.
    Seek God not with your outer man but with the inner man, the heart.
    We also seek Him with Truth.
    What is truth? His Word is Truth.
    Get a bible and begin to read it allowing His Spirit to take you on the most fascinating journey you have ever been on!
    Start with Matthew, mark, Luke and John, when you are done reading this finish reading the whole New Testament.
    Congratulations, you have been forgiven and you have been restored and reconciled back to God now draw near unto Him and she will draw near unto you!

  3. (He) will draw near unto you
