Motley Crue’s ‘The Dirt’ Soundtrack Debuts in Top Ten of Billboard 200
Motley Crue and its catalog are still riding high after the release of their biopic, The Dirt, on Netflix.
Per Billboard, the film’s soundtrack album, which features four new songs along with some of the Crue’s biggest hits, will debut on the Billboard 200 album at number ten with 30,000 total units. Of that figure, 15,000 were from physical album sales.
This marks the first time Motley Crue have appeared in the Billboard 200 top ten since the release of their 2008 studio album Saints of Los Angeles, which debuted at number four.
The Crue chart news follows the report from Deadline last week about the band’s incredible streaming and downloading gains. Spotify streams went up 570%, while their streams on Apple Music saw an increase of 900%. Apple iTunes downloads also went up a whopping 2,027%. Deezer users provided for a streaming increase of 669%.
