Girls, Girls, Girls is the fourth studio album by American heavy metal band Mötley Crüe, released on May 15, 1987.

The album contains a more blused riffed style than their previous albums. The record contains the hits "Wild Side" and "Girls, Girls, Girls". The record also reflects the band's hard-living lifestyle, and pays homage to their love of riding Harley Motorcycles, drinking whiskey, drug use, life on the Sunset Strip, and spending nights at strip clubs. However, there are darker sides to the album as well, notably "Dancing on Glass" and "Wild Side". The power ballad "You're All I Need" tells the story of the death of a lover, and the song "Nona" is a tribute to Nikki Sixx' grandmother, who died during the recording of the album.

Girls, Girls, Girls received a positive review from Allmusic's Steve Huey, who gave the album a rating of four stars and states: "Girls, Girls, Girls continued Mötley Crüe's commercial hot streak, eventually going quadruple platinum as its predecessor, Theatre of Pain, had; meanwhile, the title track brought them their second Top 20 single, and 'Wild Side' became a popular MTV item."[1]

The album peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard charts.[6] On the week it might have reached No. 1, Whitney Houston's second album, Whitney, debuted at the top of the charts.[7] Eventually, the group's 1989 album Dr. Feelgood would go on to claim the top Billboard spot.[8] The album was also the band's third straight album to go quadruple platinum, after Shout at the Devil and Theatre of Pain.[9]
