Mötley Crüesdays: “Don’t Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)”

Released in September of 1989, Dr. Feelgood would become Mötley Crüe’s signature album, thanks in part to their massive popularity and the ubiquity of the album’s five singles. “Don’t Go Away Mad (Just Go Away),” the fourth single, peaked at number 19 on the Billboard Hot 100, and is fairly typical in terms of 80s Crüe, musically and lyrically. Also, it’s one of the best tracks, with an exuberant and undeniably catchy energy.
