Mötley Crüe has some history. Like, a lot of history. You may have heard the stories over the years, or maybe you read some of the books like The Dirt or The Heroin Diaries, or watched The Dirt on Netflix. So there’s a chance you know this story too, and it’s pretty interesting if you’re a fan. Mötley Crüe had originally planned on releasing an album called Personality #9, with singer John Corabi (who replaced Vince Neil in 1992).

But surprisingly the release didn’t go as planned, as things tend to fall apart with bands from time to time. You can read the full story here. Only two songs from the album can now be heard, which are “Let Us Prey” (later put on the Generation Swine album) and “Say Goodbye.”

Check out “Say Goodbye” below:
