The band Motley Crue has sold their full catalog for $150 million to BMG.

Insiders told Variety on Tuesday that the deal was in the $150 million range, while separate sources told the outlet that the sum was 'significantly lower.'

The outlet reported that 'there was a wide discrepancy' in the totals being reported, with speculation that the band was being paid in installments, with a chunk to arrive after it finishes its North American stadium tour, which is slated for next June.
