Mötley Crüe and Netflix are finally ready to spill The Dirt.

The streamer released a first look at rock-n-roll excess on Tuesday for the film adaptation of The Dirt: Confessions Of The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band, the best-selling book that chronicles in lurid detail the assorted rises and falls of one of the biggest bands of the ’80s: Motley Crüe.

The two-and-a-half minute trailer reflects the Crüe’s aim to conquer the rock world by jamming an outlandish stage show into the clubs: “The fans are dying for some anarchy,” says bassist Nicky Sixx, played by Douglas Booth, “so let’s give it to them.” From there, you will see hotels rooms laid to waste, Vince Neil get into the drunken car accident that claimed the life of Hanoi Rocks drummer Razzle, Sixx survive a heroin overdose, Tommy Lee (Machine Gun Kelly) weather a turbulent marriage to Heather Locklear, and Mick Mars (Iwan Rheon) suffer from a debilitating bone disease. Plus, Pete Davidson as record exec Tom Zutaut and Breaking Bad’s David Costabile as manager Doc McGhee!

The Dirt has been in and out of development for more than a decade, with Jeff Tremaine (Jackass) signing on five years ago to direct. Check out the trailer above to see if this film might be worth the wait, which ends Mar. 22, when The Dirt starts streaming.
