"Dr. Feelgood" is a Metal song by Mötley Crüe which is about a drug dealer who gave him his fix every now and again in Los Angeles. (thanks, Rachael - Hamilton, Ontario, Canada)

The band reached its peak popularity in 1989, with the release of Dr. Feelgood, which was their fifth album. It became their only #1 album and stayed on the charts for 109 weeks after its release. (thanks, Jason - North Caldwell, NJ)

Guitarist Mick Mars came up with the main guitar part and melody line for the chorus, which Sixx put words over. (thanks, justin - fredericton, Canada)

Vocalist Vince Neil looked back at this song to Rolling Stone in 2009: "I knew it was a classic from the time I heard that very first 'bomp bomp bomp bomp' — that intro just kind of grabs you. This song has been popular for 20 years. It was funny because I was watching VH1 and they had the Greatest Hard Rock Songs and 'Feelgood' was 15 or something. I was like, 'Wow, of all time.' Then you have Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith and AC/DC and 'Feelgood.' I was like, 'Wow, that's cool.' It's our signature song in some ways."

Bassist Nikki Sixx recalled to Rolling Stone: "I remember it had a whole other set of lyrics. I had sort of forgotten that and I found them in a box recently. I was like, 'oh, wow.' It had a whole different theme to it. It was called 'Dr. Feelgood,' but a whole different thing lyrically. In the end it was inspired by drug dealers. Is there ever just one? A good drug addict always has more than one dealer."
