Same Ol' Situation (S.O.S)

Album: Dr. Feelgood (1989)
Charted: 78

Songfacts®:

  • Bassist Nikki Sixx explained to Rolling Stone: "That's about chicks leaving you for chicks. It happens. It definitely happens. It's worse than a chick leaving you for a guy because there's nothing you can do about it."
    Vocalist Vince Neil added: "That was about a guy leaving a guy for a girl. The subject plagues men worldwide. I love it because when Elektra heard it they were like, 'Oh, this is perfect for a single.' In a Mötley fashion, we were like, 'Wonderful. We'll tell you later that it's about lesbians.'"
  • Former Night Ranger bassist and co-vocalist Jack Blades contributed backing vocals to this track.
