Mötley Crüe‘s iconic second album, “Shout at the Devil”, turns 40 this year, and the band is celebrating with a multi-configuration release of the album, including a limited-edition super deluxe box set. The box set features the newly remastered album on LP, CD, and cassette, as well as a variety of other goodies, including a pentagram séance board, devil board with metal planchette, metal 7″ adapter, album art lithographs, tarot cards, and devil candle holder.

In addition to the box set release, Mötley Crüe is also celebrating the album with a window display at the Hard Rock Hotel in London. The display features a life-sized replica of the “Shout at the Devil” album cover, as well as a variety of other items from the band’s history, including stage costumes, instruments, and set pieces.

“Shout at the Devil” was released in 1983 at the height of the Satanic Panic, and it quickly became one of the most controversial albums of the era. The album’s title track, as well as songs like “Looks That Kill” and “Public Enemy No. 1,” all dealt with themes of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll, and they were often criticized by religious groups and conservative politicians.

Despite the controversy, “Shout at the Devil” was a commercial success, selling over four million copies in the United States alone. The album also helped to make Mötley Crüe one of the biggest rock bands in the world.
