One-time Motley Crue frontman John Corabi is hoping to play the band’s biggest flop in its entirety to mark the album’s 20th anniversary this summer.

Corabi joined the band as fired Vince Neil’s replacement in 1992, and recorded the “MC 94” with the group.

The critically-acclaimed album was a commercial failure and the singer’s time with Motley Crue ended when Neil returned in 1997. He went on to form Union with with ex-KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick.

Speaking of his plans to revive the forgotten Crue album, Corabi said, “I may go do that (perform the album) this summer… with a full band.

“At this point, it would be all the songs from the record. I don’t know if I can do (them all)… There’s one song on the record that I don’t know if I can do, but there’s other stuff that we recorded that was never released. There’s a song called ‘Hypnotized,’ and ‘10,000 Miles,’ and ‘Living In The Know,’ and ‘Kiss The Sky,’ and ‘Let Us Pray’… So there’s a bunch of other songs that I can replace that one song with.”
