There are few bands in history that can say they have experienced life like Mötley Crüe’s and lived to tell the tale. Between deadly car crashes, a sex tape, dealing with ankylosing spondylitis, and a bassist that has been declared dead not once but twice, the band have lived (and literally died) by their debaucherous reputation.
Their story has been widely publicised through their collaborative 2001 autobiography, The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band which became a New York Times Best Seller and feature-length Netflix movie in 2019. With utmost success from the biopic and its soundtrack, the band landed another #1 album on iTunes and Top 10 worldwide with 22 chart-topping singles and 7 albums on the charts.
They’ve also released several solo works including Nikki Sixx’s Heroin Diaries, Tommy Lee’s Tommyland and Vince Neil’s Tattoos and Tequila to name a few and have lived through the evolution of the modern music industry from vinyl and tapes to CDs and now streaming.
In fact, in the six months following the release of the movie, The Dirt, Mötley Crüe celebrated a meteoric rise of almost 350% increase in streams of their music across all streaming platforms showing the band have now been embraced by a new generation of rock fans.
After signing a contract to cease touring in 2015, then promptly tearing it up five years later booking a global headlining tour (which was cancelled due to the pandemic and has just been rescheduled again to 2022), the glam rock superstars are still finding a way to keep their name in the spotlight with a special series of music re-releases and fan activations, revisiting their globally acclaimed catalogue.
The first release will be a digital remastering of their 1987 album Girls, Girls, Girls which is aptly timed to celebrate the band’s 40th Anniversary The iconic album features hits Wild Side, You’re All I Need, and the title track Girls Girls Girls, and became a global success, despite the original uncensored video being banned by MTV and being named, “one of the most NSFW (not safe for work) videos of all time” by Rolling Stone in 2011.
Fans can now pre-order this special remastered digital edition of Girls, Girls, Girls the album ahead of its release on Friday, 11 June, 2021. Further releases to be announced soon.
