The Feelgood songs never go over well for a few reasons.
  1. The songs are harder to play, as they were actually sober when they wrote them.
  2. They overdubbed the heck out of the album so, they can't possibly play all the parts.
  3. Bob Rock, as usual, totally over-produced the album so it's impossible to recreate the sound live.
  4. They got away from the glam-punk, 3-chord rocking selves, which began on the Girls, Girls, Girls album.

Motley, like a lot of the 8-'s bands started with 2 albums where every song was great, then TOP had about 7, Girls had 3-4, and DRF had 3-4.
