In Case You Ever Wanted To Write On Vince Neil's Face

Props to my girl Heather for giving me the tip on this one.

When Heather reordered checks recently, she came across an advertisement for Motley Crue checks. Seriously.

I get being a superfan... but wow. Imagine paying an important bill with a check featuring Nikki Sixx or Mick Mars... it all seems a bit insane to me. I mean, do bank tellers laugh at these checks as they go through their hands? I'm pretty sure I've seen KISS checks before and that is equally bad, but for some reason, I find it more hilarious a proposition to write on Vince Neil's face than, say, the mug of Gene Simmons.

These branded checks -- along with their crappy marketing copy -- both make me laugh and cringe. The marketing copy reads as thus:

Motley Crue are an extremely popular rock band, creating hits from the 80's onward. You can get Motley Crue Personal Checks and other office accessories adorned with the images inspired from their 9th studio album Saints of Los Angeles. Keep Rock'n'Roll alive with Motley Crue Personal Checks in your briefcase.

Banging your head to Motley's hard rocking hits is one thing. But what does that have to do with paying the mortgage and power bill? It seems that just like Gene Simmons, if Nikki Sixx sees a way to make a buck off the Motley brand, he'll do it -- no matter how un-metal the product.

Oh and in case you are wondering... Heather did not select the Motley checks. And remember kids: nothing says rock n' roll more than a briefcase and checkbook.

All credibility was lost when they were listed with Fergie checks.

I think it's a cool idea and would be eve cooler if it was just a "watermark" of their logo.

There's your idea, kidz --

Choose your favorite band logo for your checks...


Aerosmith's logo on checks, Zeppelin's Four Symbols on checks, The Stones' "Jagger Lips" on checks... Poison, Leppard, Scorps, Accept, Dokken, Cinderella and Nickleback logo checks. What th*?%#! Strike that last one. REAL Rock'n'Roll Bands only!!!

I do, but only on the storage unit housing my White 1976 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible that needs to be restored for the third time since I bought it twenty years ago. BTW, I have played AC/DC, Aerosmith, Queen, Cheap Trick, Zeppelin, Motorhead, Priest and Crüe (Too Fast For Love) 8 Tracks playin' in this car. 500 Cubes of Fuel Injected Glory just waitin' for that big check to come in. I still got the 8 Tracks, too!
