Motley Crue memoir The Dirt returns to New York Times Best Sellers List

Motley Crue’s 2001 memoir has returned to the New York Times Best Sellers List following the successful launch of the band’s Netflix biopic, “The Dirt.”

Written by Neil Strauss and published by HarperCollins, "The Dirt: Confessions Of The World's Most Notorious Rock Band" returns to the prestigious US charts, where it landed at No. 6 on Nonfiction Print Paperback and No. 8 on the Nonfiction Combined Print & E-Book Best Sellers list.

“#Crüeheads Rule!” posted the group alongside the news.

"'The Dirt' by Neil Strauss and Motley Crue is a rock masterpiece,” says Lynn Grady, senior VP and publisher of HarperCollins's William Morrow imprint Dey Street Books. “It's been so great to see how both the book and the movie have worked together to inspire so much interest in the band's music and their singular and remarkable story. And once again, the fans have spoken.”

"The book, the music, and the movie, all at the top of the charts!,” adds band manager Allen Kovac. “HarperCollins, The Eleven Seven Label Group, the film, and Tenth Street Entertainment, taking Motley Crue to the top once again."

Directed by Jeff Tremaine, “The Dirt” follows Motley Crue’s rise from the Los Angeles club scene to headline-making international stardom and stars Machine Gun Kelly as drummer Tommy Lee, Daniel Webber as singer Vince Neil, Douglas Booth as bassist Nikki Sixx and Iwan Rheon as guitarist Mick Mars.

The companion soundtrack album of the same name delivered the band their first appearance in the US Top 10 in a decade, when the project debuted on the Billboard 200 at No. 10.
