Mötley Records is the current record label for the heavy metal band Mötley Crüe. Albums the company has made with Mötley Crüe include Saints of Los Angeles, Red, White & Crüe, and New Tattoo as well as all original albums that was made before New Tattoo, remade. The record company is the band's third. It was originally distributed by Beyond Records, which in turn was distributed by BMG. Beyond Records folded shortly afterwards. Now the label is currently distributed by Hip-O Records and Universal Music Group, though since 2008 this has been limited to non-US distribution, as the label is now distributed by Eleven Seven Music and Warner Music Group in North America. It technically serves as a successor to Leathür Records, which was the record label for the debut album, a imprint of Greenworld Distribution, owned by the band and original manager Allan Coffman. Leathür was soon closed when Mötley Crüe signed a deal with Elektra which lasted until 1997.
