Various bundles will include, colored vinyl, cassette tape, commemorative poster/lithograph, vintage t-shirt, vinyl test pressings, a limited-edition, numbered drum head, a flexi single of Wild Side, Girls, Girls, Girls” patch, and more. The band recently celebrated the thirtieth anniversary on the album’s actual release date – May 15th β€” with the announcement of the August 25th reissue.

Motley Crue paved the way for rock bands to push the envelope since the band’s inception and their music, as well as their antics, provided them a successful thirty-six-year career as a leading force in rock around the world. 1987’s Girls, Girls, Girls included three smash hits, Wild Side, You’re All I Need and the title track, which became a global success, despite the original uncensored video being banned from MTV at the time.

Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx says, “It’s hard to believe Girls, Girls, Girls already turned thirty this year. We went against the grain with this album when it first came out in 1987. The music and lyrics reflect what was going on in the streets of Los Angeles at that time.

A big thank you to all the fans who have made the album stand the test of time. It’s really cool to now see a new generation of fans exploring and digging Girls, Girls, Girls‘ three decades later.”

A new trailer for the Girls Girls Girls special deluxe edition can be seen below.

A product of the ’80s Hollywood Sunset Strip, Motley Crue was the quintessential L.A. hair metal band. Their string of hit albums and crossover songs on radio and MTV was only matched by their over-the-top live show, mounting legal bills, and alarming drug use. By 1987, the band was dancing on a fine line between real life or death. Sixx told the “In The Studio” show what he remembered about the Billboard No. 2-charting album. “We were a mess,” he said. “I know we didn’t go overseas, because the management said, ‘You guys go, and somebody’s not coming back. Or if they do, they’re coming back in a body bag… We were operating like a punk band! We were completely out of control.”

Motley Crue’s last studio album was 2008’s Saints Of Los Angeles, which was followed by a 2009 Greatest Hits compilation.

    What? No 8-track? LOL!
    Say what you want about Motley, but other than KISS (of course) nobody put on a live show like the Crue. Cheers! πŸ™‚

      Nobody? Alice Cooper….who blew Motley Crue off the stage during their last tour.

      I agree with you, Doug. I thought Crue put on a great show production. Crue actually had more fire and explosions than KI$$. I know Crue got alot of flack, at times, cuz of Vince’s singing. But in totality, I thought Crue was great live. My favorite Crue album is Too Fast For Love, the Leathur mix, containing the song Stick To Your Guns.

      Alice is the king of shock rock, always has been and always will be. Alice does his thing better than anyone, and Motley does theirs, IMO. Big picture, production wise, pyro, the showstopper – Tommy’s over-the-top drum solos since the 80’s, as far as bang for the buck, Crue & Kiss are at the top of the list. Motley probably should’ve called it quits after the Carnival Of Sins/reunion tour, musically they really haven’t been that good since, although there were some good moments here & there, but they still put on a hell of a show! Musically, Motley is as good as Motley can be, which isn’t bad, not great, but not bad either, but they more than make up for it visually! Of course there are others with great big productions as well – Rob Zombie, Iron Maiden, etc., but again, as far as bang for your buck, the Crue blows it up! Just my opinion. Now, I’m going back to sleep, have a nice day πŸ™‚

      Sh-t! I can’t believe I forgot to mention AC/DC, AC/DC! Love those cannons! Talk about BANG for the buck! πŸ˜‰

      Exactly, Rattle, even on those nights that Vince’s voice was really off, and Nikki & Tommy weren’t 100%, Mick was always on, even with all his health issues. And as far as the show goes, you’re right, they always gave Kiss a run for their money, especially on the Carnival Of Sins tour, holy sh-t! I still think production wise that tour left everybody in awe, even Kiss!

      I’ve seen Crue once, that was the Theater of Pain tour with Autograph as the opener, and didn’t think much of them really…not much heart, just some guys…I mean when your drummer is clearly the best musician that doesn’t bode well if you ask me… I mean, I’d seen Van Halen, Priest twice, Maiden…Motley was stupefyingly mediocre, even though they have some good songs. Unlike Twisted Sister, who I’ve never seen, but don’t have any good rock songs (if you ask me).

    • DR Is Live on

      I was really expecting a ‘Dancing on Glass’ or ‘Wildside’ pun-reference from you regarding this subject matter Doug.

    • Doug R. on

      Sorry to disappoint you, bro, maybe next time. πŸ˜‰

  • Donald Pudas on

    Wow. Vince got fat in the face.

    • Munkgetter on

      Vince’s face isn’t the only thing that got FAT !!!!

  • Jason Falkinham on

    Saw their last show in LA and it was embarrassing!

  • Keith G on

    I agree that the Crue always had one hell of a live show! Tommy’s drum solos were always epic! I think that they were on the top of their game during the DR. FEELGOOD tour. The band was clean, and they were just firing on all cylinders. Musically, they are what they are! Tommy is a great drummer, and Mick is a very underrated guitar player. Nicki never claimed to be a great bass player, but writes good tunes. Vince’s voice is distinctive, and fits what they do, although it has definitely seen it’s better days. They probably could have called it quits 5 years earlier than they did, and have left a better legacy. I saw video of their last tour, and Vince’s voice really sucked! You could tell they just weren’t into it.

    I’ve seen Motley 10 times and they were so hit or miss. The Feelgood shows were good, the Swine show was terrible, the Carnival of Sins shows were fantastic, and it was pretty much over after that. They just got lazy and it showed. The entire Final Tour was pretty subpar. Gn’R have played anywhere between 2 hrs 40 mins and 3 hrs 30 mins on this tour with a perfect mix of songs. I know Mick is in tough shape, but that’s what Motley should have done on that last tour. The stage show is fine, but in the end, it all comes down to music, and 16 songs played is an embarrassment for a final tour/show…not to mention only 3 songs played from the first two albums!
