  • Mike Pellegrini from BiloxiSixx really lets you know how things were back in the world of the early Crue! Great lyrics and so true!
  • Jason from Aurora, CoI like how they spell it W-H-I-S-K-Y like scotch whisky. That's because Motley Crue has good taste in booze.
  • Jim from Long Beach, CaI use to see the Crue at the Whisky many times before they broke huge, those were the days!!..
  • Dustin from Arcadia,its a (really) good song highly recommended
  • Jessica from Las Vegas, Nvthe 'Whisky A Go Go' was the bands first place to have a gig ((small indoor show)). I havent heard this song before but i am pretty sure that that is what the band is reffering to.
