Mötley Crüe's iconic Girls, Girls, Girls features hits "Wild Side", "You're All I Need" and the title track "Girls Girls Girls", which became a global success, despite the original uncensored video being banned by MTV. Though the band members barely remember recording it, Girls, Girls, Girls was another smashing success for the band, reaching No. 2 on the Billboard charts and selling over four million copies.
"Girls, Girls, Girls where we were at the time, as a young bunch of men that were extremely successful and didn’t necessarily have all the tools to deal with it. The lyrics are very raw. “Wild Side,” “Girls, Girls, Girls” and “Five Years Dead” are great examples where I feel like I really nailed it. And “You’re All I Need” is a great storytelling song that isn’t as glossy and pretty as some of the other bands were trying to come off as. Of course, you don’t know this until you step back." Nikki Sixx told Rolling Stone in 2017.
"I think Mötley Crüe was always gritty, and that’s what I love about the band." said Sixx. "It wasn’t so worked out. It wasn’t choreographed or overthought. We were winging it musically, with our production, our shows and how we would present ourselves. It was running parallel to our lifestyle. We were honest. Whether you like it or hate it, Mötley Crüe wasn’t trying to be another band; we were just being Mötley Crüe."
The Girls Girls Girls commemorative poster was a real thrill to take on because I knew I'd have no shortage of provocative imagery to play with. My goal was to create a visual that captured the wild aesthetic of the Mötley Crüe of that era. I'd envisioned setting the mood with neon light reflections and a color palette that referenced the album cover and the notorious music video of the title track. Once I settled on a composition, I focused on adding lots of LA atmosphere. Lots of attitude. And more than just a little skin.- Ryan Richardson Pratt
