Louder's Tracks Of The Week: new rock music from Motley Crue, Tom Petty and more


Welcome, music fans, to this week's round up of the best new rock music the world has to offer. This week, glam metal stars Mötley Crüe are back with new single The Dirt (Est. 1981), released in support of their upcoming biopic The Dirt – a hard-rocking statement of intent that confirms their attitudes towards sex, partying and women haven't moved on any since 1987. 

We also have a posthumous entry from Tom Petty, a clash of the alt-rock titans as ex-Pavement members Stephen Malkmus and Scott Kannberg (Spiral Stairs) go head-to-head, a gorgeous entry from TOTW newbie Ioanna Gika, the latest from the least embarrassing ex-Smiths member (Johnny Marr, in case you were wondering) and pretty much everything in-between. 

But for now, a look back at last week's winners. Congrats to the three below, especially to Ginger and co who scooped victory with a comeback single 10 years in the making.

3. Filthy Friends - Last Chance County
2. Jordan Rudess - Wired For Madness, Pt. 1.3 (Lost Control)
1. The Wildhearts - Dislocated
