Motley Crue is the latest to sell off their catalog for a reportedly hefty price tag.

In a press release from BMG, the music company announced they have acquired the entire Crue recorded catalog. It’s also the “largest single catalog acquisition since the company was founded in 2008.”

Motley Crue said in a statement on the deal, “It feels amazing to be collaborating with our new partners at BMG. Their extensive track record of success in Rock made them the perfect home to continue preserving and growing our musical legacy, ensuring we always stay at The Top.”

While BMG did not disclose the exact price of the deal, Billboard reports, “…One music industry source put the figure between two numbers that other outlets have reported, at higher than $90 million but not $150 million.”
