The discography of Mötley Crüe, a heavy metal band from Los Angeles, California, consists of nine studio albums, two live albums, three EPs, six compilation albums, three box sets, nine DVD, 30 singles, and 31 music videos.

Mötley Crüe was an American heavy metal band formed in Los Angeles, California in 1981. The band was founded by bass guitarist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee, who were later joined by lead guitarist Mick Mars and lead singer Vince Neil. Mötley Crüe has sold more than 100 million copies worldwide,[1] including 25 million in the US.[2]

The band members have often been noted for their hard-living lifestyles; all members have had numerous brushes with the law, have spent time in jail, have suffered long addictions to alcohol and drugs, have had countless escapades with women, and are heavily tattooed. Their ninth studio album entitled Saints of Los Angeles was released on June 24, 2008. In 2013, the band announced a retirement and a farewell tour.[3]
