Motley Crue have released two brand new shirts to coincide with the 33rd anniversary of their fourth studio record “Girls Girls Girls”.  Both shirts are black: the short sleeved one features pink graphics; the long sleeved one features green graphics.

Originally released on May 15, 1987, Motley Crue’s “Girls Girls Girls” debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 and went 4X Platinum in the USA.   Featuring “Wild Side” and the controversial “You’re All I Need”, Girls Girls Girls was a strong record for the band.  Motley’s previous record “Theater of Pain” delivered only one solid hit (“Home Sweet Home”); Girls Girls Girls saw Motley return to their rock n roll roots.
