Probably Def Leppard's best album, and certainly their most successful, Hysteria pretty much sums up 80s hard rock: catchy, tuneful, and fun. It's also one of the few albums from the period that doesn't sound dated now, and singles like "Pour Some Sugar On Me", "Armageddon It", and "Rocket" remain staples of rock radio. The rest of the album is equally entertaining; "Animal" and "Hysteria", while mid-tempo, have the same slick intensity, and "Love Bites" is one of the few pop-metal ballads that doesn't sound saccharine over a decade after its release. Def Leppard may be remembered more for their hair than their music these days, but that's more due to changing tastes than anything else. It's still good. --Genevieve Williams

Hysteria is an achievement for the band. In 1984 drummer Rick Allen lost an arm in a vehicle accident making the 3 years between Pyromania and Hysteria difficult ones for the band. The band could've went on with another drummer but they supported Rick and the young drummer developed a new technique with the help of electronic foot pedals that allowed him to reproduce sounds he would usually play with both arms. It's really incredible that Rick was determined enough to continue when he could have been devastated and quit.Read more ›
The number one song that Def Leppard is mainly remembered for is "Pour Some Sugar On Me." The provocative lyrics threw listeners for a loop. "Love is like a bomb baby come on get it on..." and "I'm hot, sticky sweet, from my head to my feet..." are just a few of the lyrics to the song. This is one of the most remembered songs from Hysteria because of this. Even after more than a decade teenagers are still dancing and singing along to the song. When listening, the tune isn't outdated even after many years and changes to the style of music. At concerts whenever the band breaks out into this song the women go crazy. The electric guitar and drums knocked fans out of their seats and on to their feet when the song was played. The song keeps its rhythm and speed throughout the entire number.
In all, Def Leppard created music on the Hysteria album that changed rock and roll forever. The rhythm and beats were the first of their time. The album was a favorite to most fans and sold millions of copies. Over half of tracks ended up as singles on the radio, proving that the members of Def Leppard had become bigger than they had ever dreamed. Hysteria will always be remembered as the record that shaped stardom for the band Def Leppard.

Was misled by the advertisement. I thought I was getting the full album of hysteria, not the single.Published 3 months ago by marcel leger
