"Too Young to Fall in Love" is a song by American heavy metal band Mötley Crüe. It was originally released on their 1983 album Shout at the Devil .
Written by bass guitarist Nikki Sixx, "Too Young to Fall in Love" was released as a single in 1984 and reached #90 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #26 on the Mainstream Rock tracks.
The tune later appeared in the 2002 video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City on the fictional in-game radio station "V-Rock".
Even though the song was a hit, it has been left off some of Mötley Crüe's compilation albums such as Decade of Decadence and Greatest Hits , though it would be included on the reissue of the latter.
An accompanying music video was released with the single. The video concerns the members of the band coming together to rescue a young Asian woman from the clutches of what appears to be an Emperor-like figure. Interspersed with footage of the band performing the song, the video also contains a fight scene where the band members fight the ninja/samurai guards of the Emperor. However, it is then revealed that the young woman has willingly submitted to being a servant to the Emperor, prompting the band members to leave, shaking their heads in disbelief and disgust.
Before Tommy Lee leaves, he tries to sample some of the Asian cuisine in the Emperor's kitchen. The Emperor's chief guard attempts to kill Tommy, but Tommy knocks him out using a heavy sack of grain. Tommy then picks up a bit of the food and begins to eat it. He then grimaces and spits the food out, walking from the kitchen in disgust.
