According to Ultimate Classic, the Motley Crue drummer, known for his amazingly wild and creative drum solos, apparently wants Sea World to stop using his band’s songs in one of their San Diego park’s attractions.

Lee joined forces with the animal rights group PETA, to stop the “Shamu Rocks” attraction. “Shamu Rocks” features white orcas performing tricks as extremely loud music blares out of the public adddress system.

In a letter to John T. Reilly, the president of SeaWorld San Diego, Lee requested that his own music not be involved in the act.

“I’m writing to ask you not to play any Mötley Crüe songs at any of SeaWorld’s parks during this sad show,” he wrote. “Although we like to torture the human fans who willingly come to our shows, we don’t want to be a part of making innocent animals’ lives hellish…Whales are not head-bangers, so stop cranking the music and take one small step toward improving their welfare.”

A video of the show can be seen below:
