#10 – Mötley Crüe – “Kickstart My Heart” – (1989)

What’s with the umlauts in the names of 80s rock bands? This song is about bassist Nikki Sixx’s overdose in 1987 when he was declared clinically dead. Then someone went Tarantino and stabbed two shots of adrenaline into his heart and… well, kickstarted his heart. I’m not a huge Mötley Crüe fan but I do quite like this song. I can’t believe I got through an entire post about Mötley Crüe without mentioning Tommy Lee… oh, crap.
