The tales of Mötley Crüe’s groupie encounters are legendary and oftentimes outrageous. Once, Tommy Lee and Nikki Sixx made a bet to see who could last the longest without showering and still hook up with a groupie. Their bet ended a staggering two months later with a combination of vomit and spaghetti.

A young fan was making out with Sixx when she got sick and threw up on the rocker. She had recently eaten pasta, and the result was definitely memorable. The incident wound up the title of the Guns N’ Roses album The Spaghetti Incident.
