35 Years Ago Today – Def Leppard Releases 20 Million Copy Seller ‘Hysteria’ LP

35 years ago today (8/3/87), Def Leppard released their fourth studio album Hysteria which became their best-selling album to date, selling over 20 million copies worldwide. The album churned out single after single (seven total) of polished hard rock that featured many a song with big multiple vocal harmonies that gave songs like “Women,” “Rocket, “Animal” and “Armageddon It” a big dose of sonic glam. Of course, the common strip club anthem “Pour Some Sugar On Me,” made the Hysteria cut too. Check out the album. Excuse the 80s lyrical content, but check out the official video for the ringer “Women”
