Sleeze Beez are a glam metal band formed in 1987[1] in The Netherlands.

They released four studio albums and one live album over a nine-year career before disbanding in 1996. Their 1990 album Screwed Blued & Tattooed peaked at number 115 on the Billboard 200 album chart.[2] The song "Stranger Than Paradise" was a big hit on MTV and was taken from the "Screwed Blued & Tattooed" album. In 1992 after a long tour they released the album "Powertool" by Atlantic Records, which contains the ballad "I Don't Want to Live Without You" and was a minor hit.

They reformed in 2010.[3] The band supported Aerosmith alongside Stone Temple Pilots on June 23, 2010 at the GelreDome in Arnhem[4] and have announced a headlining appearance on February 4, 2011 at the Paradiso in Amsterdam[5]
