"Looks That Kill" is a song by the heavy metal band Mötley Crüe. It was released in 1983, on the group's second album Shout at the Devil.


Written by bassist Nikki Sixx, the track was released as a single on January 4, 1984. It spent 10 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States, peaking at #54 and #12 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks.[1]

Released as a video, the song garnered Mötley Crüe its first true exposure on MTV. Its riffs are regarded as some of lead guitarist Mick Mars' best work. A fan favorite, the tune is still a key part of the group's live set.[citation needed]

Motley Crue played Looks That Kill live for the first time on October 31, 1982 at the Concord Pavilion in Concord, CA.
