Duncan Strauss in his review of "Girls, Girls, Girls" feels that the reason Motley Crue's album entered the Billboard charts at No. 5 is due to a "metal friendly" climate ("High-Tech Raunch 'n' Roll," June 7).

Who does he think helped start it in the first place? I agree, musically, I was expecting a little more (although there is still some great stuff on the album) but, lyrically, I have always considered Nikki Sixx's lyrics to be some of the most striking and realistic in the music world today.

Why is Springsteen considered so "talented" when he sings about women and fast cars, repeating lyrics endlessly, but Sixx is "lunkheaded" for writing about sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, never mind his songs about politics, discrimination and racism?
