80s Song of the Day: Home Sweet Home by Motley Crue

You know I’m a dreamer
But my heart’s of gold
I had to run away high
So I wouldn’t come home low


Home Sweet Home by Motley Crue was released September 30, 1985, with Red Hot as the B side. It was a single from the band’s third studio album Theatre of Pain.

The song reached No. 89 on the Billboard Hot 100. Upon it’s re-release in 1991 for the Decade of Decadence 81-91 compilation album, it reached No. 37.

Watch the song’s music video, notable for its long stay on top of the MTV daily request chart, lasting over three months until MTV invoked the unwritten “Crue Rule” – dropping videos from eligibility on their request line after 30 days.
