During a conversation with Bill Maher’s Club Random Podcast, drummer Tommy Lee talked about how Motley Crue escaped the cancel culture.
Bill Maher said:
“As you get older, you must be like… People just get more tolerant and more like, ‘Oh, whatever we were fighting about, I don’t give a f*ck.’ Is that where you are with the band?”
Tommy Lee replied:
“Yeah, we just tend to like the kind of take a pi**. We actually just recorded a song called ‘Canceled’ because we were just inspired by the rest of the world, things, and places like anybody else. There was this article.”
Regarding the article, Lee added:
“It was like, ‘How did Motley Crue ever not get canceled?’ ‘How?’ That was the headline, and we were like, ‘F*ck, we got to write a song about that’ because we didn’t ever get it.
”We snuck in under whatever threshold, wherever that was where we got away with f*cking murder.”
