Theatre of Pain is the album that transformed Motley Crue from Sunset Strip hair metal hooligans to classic rock contenders.
Similar to the way the Beatles' Rubber Soul signaled that Revolver and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band were imminent, Theatre of Pain signaled that, after successfully bombarding the world with the glam-punk-fueled mousse-metal warheads Too Fast for Love (1981) and Shout at the Devil (1983), the Crüe had deeper, richer, more fully rocking tricks up their... well, these guys have never been known to wear sleeves, so let's say the tricks were hidden in their hair-dos.
Theatre of Pain peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard album charts. In 1995, it was certified quadruple platinum, and has continued selling in a multitude of formats since then.
