Welcome to the 21st century where rock stars aren’t bellowing over a crappy sound system–instead they have pre-recorded backing vocals like some of the laziest pop stars.

At least Motley Crue is down to own up to their usage of backing vocals. Mick Mars hates it, however, and likens the band to Britney Spears.

When asked in an interview with Blabbermouth about the backing tapes, Mars said: “That’s a whole another story – that could get me in a lot of trouble. Let me put it this way: I’ll just say two words and you’ll know. Britney Spears.”

“I don’t like it. I have to say 60s and 70s bands were my favorites because they were real,” Mars elaborated. “They just got up there and kicked it up. Made a mistake – so what? Sounded a little bit empty here or there – so what? It’s the bigness and rawness and the people that wrote the songs and presented them.”

“I could put on a Motley CD and play with it all day long. I don’t want to do that.”

The boys will embark on their farewell tour soon.
