One of Motley Crue’s biggest hits is Smoking In the Boys Room, but this song was originally made by a music group called Brownsville Station in the 1970s. Motley Crue’s version is heavier, but I think I like Brownsville Station’s version more. Motley Crue’s version is better remembered because Motley Crue was a more popular group than Brownsville Station. Motley Crue is not the only glam metal group from the 1980s to have a big hit with a cover song. Guns and Roses’ cover of Live and Let Die is almost as popular as the original by Wings. Also, Cum On Feel the Noize by Quiet Riot, one of their two biggest songs from the album Metal Health, their only album to be really popular, was originally done by a music group called Slade.
