Bassist rips Godsmack frontman and announces new Sixx:A.M. album.

Ultimate Guitar

Nikki Sixx recently took a quick jab at Godsmack frontman Sully Erna, continuing an ongoing feud. "RIP Sully Erna ... Oops I'm sorry, I meant your career," Nikki twitted, possibly in regards to Erna's latest role in "Army of the Damned" movie. The mentioned feud goes back a while, starting with Sully's critical comments about Crue and Nikki's treatment of Godsmack's during the Crue Fest. Erna has later admitted that the band's "Cryin' Like a B-tch" track was inspired by the event. As for the more music-related part, Sixx has confirmed wrapping up the writing process for the new Sixx:A.M. album, also announcing a 2014 release. "Good news," the bassist posted on Facebook. "All the songs on the new Sixx:A.M. are finally finished being written. I just played my last bass parts today and DJ [Ashba] is finishing guitars this weekend. We put every ounce of our souls into this album and we can't wait to share it with you in 2014." The latest Sixx:A.M. studio effort, "This Is Gonna Hurt," saw its release in May 2011 through Eleven Seven Music.

RIP @SullyErna ....Oops I'm sorry, I meant your career.

    Nikki Sixx has been dead since the 90's, so... yeah
    clearly you haven't heard their newer stuff. Better than Godsmack.
    clearly your wrong
    As much as I agree with your opinion, I don't agree with your grammar YOU'RE Dammit YOU'RE
    Oh, ouch. Changed my avatar just for this. On another note, I would expect Nikki's bass parts to be done very fast seeing as there is basically nothing to any of them.

    Nah… Sixx wrote some great songs and probably has forgotten more about music than any douchebag in Gobsmack has ever known. Sixx AM might be terrible, but Erna and crew are flat out dorks.
    But Nicki Sixx is in Sixx:A.M.
    he's in motley cure you ****ing dumbass
    To say he has probably forgot more about music than godsmack knows is pure ignorance. While godsmack members are not gods with their instruments, they have showed solid skill levels. Nikki sixx has played mediocre bass lines throughout his career, and is known more for his image and heroine use than actual skill. He is a decent songwriter but far from the talent level of the rest of his motley Crüe.
    He was their primary songwriter. Listening to Godsmack is pure ignorance. They're terrible.
    And how many of motley crues songs were well wrote? I'll say a few tops. I actually prefer his six a.m. writing. Shame the music is generic.
    OK, let's end this: Sixx - irrelevant, washed up ex-rockstar, who's a mediocre bassist at best and can't write a non-generic song to save his life. Godsmack - irrelevant Alice in Chains ripoff that only got attention at one point in time because of "I Stand Alone". Also mediocre musicians and songwriters. There we go, done!
    I was at the Detroit show for Cruefest 2, it was very enjoyable! Unfortunately Tommy did something to his hand and he did not play that night. I didn't know much about Godsmack until that night and I have to tell you this: they are a very talented bunch! The drum battle between the singer and the drummer was especially fun to listen to! There were many improvised guitar solos throughout their set, I felt good vibes the entire time. They're not my favourite band by any means but I have a lot of respect for them. I'm in a melodic death metal band that shreds that takes itself too seriously lol, so it was nice to rock out to some Godsmack and Crue. All in all a very feel good night.
    You know godsmacks music has been disappointing the last few albums, but for the most part I find it to be less generic than sixx a.m.
    I don't like Godsmack, but I give props to Erna for acting in the movie. What has Nikki Sixx ever done except write mediocre music? I rest my case....
    Vicryl 2.0
    He also wrote a book about how lots and lots of heroin he was taking.
    And then he wrote a soundtrack about how he did lots and lots of heroin to the book he wrote about doing lots and lots of heroin. He also nailed half the women who posed in Playboy in the '80s/'90s.
    Started a genre. Many people hate 80s music, but The Crue were the shit! They epitomized glam metal. Many will say that sucks, and they have the right to feel that way because it got old fast. But I must say that Shout at the Devil is one of the few in my top 10 that came out n the 80s
    Sixx AM is generic poop, Godsmack is generic Alice In Chains ripoffery. Neither are good.
    People on here don't like Godsmack??? have any of you listened to their stuff?
    Yeah quite a bit. Not a horrible song but to me sounded a lot like a poor chains rip off. Also they need to quit recycling and reusing riffs. Bad religion, the enemy, and crying like a bitch could all be the same track if you minus a few little guitar parts. They have how many albums? If you learn 5 songs you learned 3/4 of their catalog.
