American heavy metal band Mötley Crüe’s ‘Home Sweet Home’ was featured on the newest episode of the Showtime series Billions this week — Billions, Season 5, Episode 4, “Opportunity Zone”, which aired on Sunday, May 24th, 2020.
The power ballad was heard at the end of the episode as Axe finishes his phone call. It continues to play as the end credits begin to roll.
Mötley Crüe’s ‘Home Sweet Home’ was first released by the Los Angeles based band in 1985 for their third studio album Theatre of Pain.
The track was notable for being a departure from the band’s usual harder sound, as well as for having its official music video be one of the most requested videos ever on MTV, as it stayed high on that network’s daily request list for over three months.
So long was the song being requested by fans, MTV finally instituted a new rule that a video was kicked off the list after 30 days.
‘Home Sweet Home‘ was re-released as ‘Home Sweet Home 91‘ for a 1991 compilation album, Decade of Decadence 81-91. It has seen its biggest success on YouTube, however, where it currently has more than 14.1 million views.
In the last few years, the track has also been used on the soundtracks of extremely popular TV shows including Stranger Things, American Horror Story, The Goldbergs, One Tree Hill and Dead of Summer.
