Dem Vinyl Boyz EP 20 - Girls, Girls, Girls


The Vinyl crew is here to listen to Motley Crue’s fourth studio album ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’. This 80s record reached No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200, sold over 4 million copies and received overwhelmingly positive reviews. Though the band put nearly no energy into making it, Mötley Crüe achieved its most substantial commercial success to date with “Theatre of Pain” (1985). That probably wasn’t the best motivation to work harder on the follow-up, 1987’s “Girls, Girls, Girls.” It doesn’t mean the band was complacent. The opener, “Wild Side,” is an ominous, deep track illustrating an urban nightmare of drugs and violence, a clear indicator that the glossy, pop-metal sheen of “Theatre of Pain” is a thing of the past. It’s followed by “Girls, Girls, Girls,” the ultimate exercise in self-indulgence and maybe the greatest strip club anthem ever written. No pair of songs in the Mötley catalog describes the band better than this one. Girls, Girls, Girls continued Mötley Crüe’s super stardom while becoming the band’s third straight album to go quadruple platinum. Overall, it’s an astute journal from a band that was having the time of their lives and just enjoying the ride—while simultaneously making great music.
