Song Of The Week #94 Def Leppard – Hysteria
It’s hard to find a piece of time to write something, but happily the weekend is coming, 🙂
How about one of most legendary hard rock & glam metal bands, :)?
De facto, Hysteria comes from Def Leppard’s fourth studio album called this same name – ‘Hysteria‘ released in 1987. Surprisingly, despite the fact that it seems that band focused on this song, another track from this album become not only most popular track from it but also one of Def Leppard most famous track – of course I’ve already described this song on this blog. It’s the ‘Pour Some Sugar On Me‘.
Who? (Hysteria album)
- Joe Elliott – vocals
- Steve Clark – guitar
- Phil Collen – guitar
- Rick Savage – bass guitar
- Rick Allen – drums
Just to save your time and don’t repeat, success of this song was average comparing to ‘Pour Some Sugar On Me‘. On the other hand, this song is perfect example of glam metal movement. I love its melody, and it’s perfect aligned to song’s words – check it out!
I’m certain that this track marked a pattern for another bands. What’s the most important, ‘Hysteria‘ single peaked #10 on Billboard 200.1
