Listen to Mötley Crüe’s ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ from Young Sheldon, Season 5, Ep. 5

American heavy metal band Mötley Crüe’s ‘Girls, Girls, Girls‘ was licensed for play on last night’s Young Sheldon, and it was pretty damned cool — Young Sheldon, Season 5, Episode 5, “Stuffed Animals and a Sweet Southern Syzygy“.

The blues rock song was played in that fabulous scene where Georgie is thinking about the type of girls he might see at the laundromat.

Mötley Crüe’s ‘Girls, Girls, Girls‘ is the title track from the heavy metal band’s fourth studio album, which came out in 1987.

The album itself was ridiculously successful, selling more than four million units, hitting the #2 spot on the Billboard 200 chart and eventually being certified Platinum x 4.

Mötley Crüe’s ‘Girls, Girls, Girls‘ was the lead single from the album, and became a smash hit for the band, gaining the #2 spot on the U.S. Mainstream Rock chart — the band’s highest ever placing.

Girls, Girls, Girls‘ also came out with an official music video the band shot in a strip joint. They initially tried to get it aired on TV with various topless girls strutting about in it, but had to send a ‘cleaner’ version before stations like MTV would oblige. Whoops!

Listen to Mötley Crüe’s ‘Girls, Girls, Girls‘ as heard on last night’s Young Sheldon in that video (the clean version!), and on the band’s fourth studio album.

Mötley Crüe itself was founded in 1981 and, yes, 40 years later, and after a hiatus from touring, the band is still together and going strong.
