Kickstart My Heart by Mötley Crüe (1989)

Kickstart My Heart by Motley Crue (1989)
"Kickstart My Heart" is a song by American heavy metal band Mötley Crüe, originally released on their 1989 album, Dr. Feelgood. The track has been used in various media, and was also included on the soundtrack album to the 2019 biographical film The Dirt.




Released as the album's second single in 1989, "Kickstart My Heart" reached #27 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States in early 1990. The introduction is a classic example of a Floyd Rose bridge trick, in which Mick Mars drops three consecutive strings resulting in sound similar to a motorcycle shifting gears, borrowed from the similar-sounding intro to Montrose's "Bad Motor Scooter". Other elements of the song are “borrowed” from “Hell Raiser” by The Sweet. The song's ending features a prominent example of talkbox effects.
