"Girls, Girls, Girls" is a single by the American heavy metal band Mötley Crüe. It is the first single from the album of the same name, and was released on May 11, 1987.

Meaning[edit]

The song references several strip clubs, including The Tropicana, The Body Shop, Seventh Veil (all located on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles), the Marble Arch (Vancouver, BC),[1] The Dollhouse (Ft. Lauderdale), the famous Crazy Horse in Paris, and Tattletales in Atlanta, GA.

Music video[edit]

Filmed on the night of April 13, 1987 Mötley shoots their video for Girls, Girls, Girls with director Wayne Isham. With a strip club theme planned for the video, they originally want to use The Body Shop but since that venue is all-nude and doesn’t serve alcohol, they end up shooting it at The Seventh Veil on the Sunset Strip. By the time they finish at the club, none of the band members are functioning properly. They leave the club in a few cars to go to Wayne’s studio nearby to film inserts, stopping off at a Mexican restaurant for shooters on the way.

Charts[edit]

The single peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 at #12, and at #20 on the Mainstream rock charts.[2]
