Musical Interlude: Too Young to Fall in Love (1983-4)

This is what put Motley Crue on the map back in the day.

Call it metal with a conscience. "Too Young to Fall in Love", from the 1983 CD, "Shout at the Devil", spins the tale of what appears to be an illicit relationship involving an underage girl. Closer examination reveals a completely different story. The absurdity of it all is a short fight scene in which the band beat up some ninjas.

Unfortunately, the song failed to crack the Hot 100, peaking at #90. Whodathunk?
