"Over my dead body," said the bassist on the Godsmack joint touring possibility.

New comments from Nikki Sixx have revealed that a long rumored feud between Motley Crue and Godsmack runs far deeper than previously suspected, Loudwire reports. As Sixx revealed on his radio show, his band's dislike for Godsmack is such that they have had them kicked off the bill of 15 festivals that Motley Crue was headlining:

"Yesterday somebody came into the studio and they said, 'Hey, Godsmack would really like to be on this show.' And I said, 'Over my dead [expletive] body.' And they said, 'Well, you know, they wanna be on the show because their record's coming out.' And I go, 'Did you forget the fact that they wrote a song about me called 'Cryin' Like a B-tch' and that there's probably 15 festivals that Motley Crue is headlining and that we said if Godsmack's on 'em, we're not doing them?"

Sixx continues, "And that was just the beginning of my revenge. And that I take every opportunity to slander them and be very immature? And then they wanna be on the show? Dude, have some credibility. I mean, Jesus Christ! I'm so embarrassed for you. At least you can go, 'We've got a new record and we don't wanna be on that [expletive]'s radio show. Well, we actually need some help now.' Have you ever burnt a bridge and looked back and went, 'I can use a lifeline right now?'"

The feud started on the Crue Fest 2 tour of 2009. The Godsmack song "Cryin' Like a B-tch," which was written soon after, was reported to be about Sixx.

    My guess is that Godsmack asked to appear on the show because they considered their feud to be water under the bridge. However, they forgot that Nikki Sixx, being the childish bellend he is, was still needlessly bitter about it and he decided to be immature about it, therefore reminding the band why they wrote that song about him in the first place. I don't listen to or follow Godsmack though so do correct me if I'm wrong.
    Nikki Sixx is a little bitch! Respect for Motley Crue but this guy is embarassing... and Godsmack aren't much better, but at least they just do what they do and don't whine on about everything!
    He's cryin' like a bitch about being on the bill with a band that insulted him. Just work it out. Go there, have a fistfight, shake hands.
    Nikki is a vengeful person, he has a personal issue with Godsmack and didn't want them on the tour. If you people define that as "crying" then I guess you can go ahead and say Godsmack is "begging" to be on the tour. Let Motley Crue take who they want on their last tour.
    nikki sixx is still crying like a bitch. if he was a man which he isnt he would go face to face with sully and hash it out but he does what he does best look and act like a girl
    Both bands are just terrible, Motley Crue are just New York Dolls wannabe's who were made to look even shittier when Guns N Roses came out and Godsmack are just Alice In Chains wannabe's.
    Ugh. Godsmack is literally the lamest band ever, but come on Nikki... Shouldn't be ending your career on a feud.
    I read this elsewhere like a week or so ago. Keep up, UG. Or your readers are going to start, you know...cryin' like bitches.
    Who cares if its a few days late here. They're just reporting. If your pissed about UG being a couple days behind other site then dont follow. Stop being a whiner dewd.
    Knobcheese Sixx , trying very hard to be relevant and newsworthy , **** , I got bored of that shit years ago . Yawn . Next .
    over a full career, Crue has a double albums worth of good material (could've been much more if it wasn't for booze and h)… godsmack are just terrible. Sixx has more talent in his toilet than sullen edna ever had.
    Nikki get over it, maybe you and sully should have the fight that axl and vince never had.
