Def Leppard are a hard rock band from Sheffield, England, who formed in 1977 at the time of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. The band have sold over 70 million albums world-wide with the bulk of their sales coming from the albums Pyromania and Hysteria. Def Leppard were one of the top selling rock bands in the World during the 1980s.The music of Def Leppard is a mixture of hard rock, glam rock, AOR, and heavy metal elements. The band has occasionally been associated with the pop metal movement of the 1980s, although its sound is more accurately associated with the contemporary NWOBHM genre of the late 1970s. The band's songs generally feature simple guitar hooks and catchy, melodic choruses. The Def Leppard sound is also characterized by its combination of hard rock and polished melodic backing vocals.

By the release of the Hysteria record, it was apparent that the band had developed a distinctive, futuristic sound featuring heavily processed drums and effects-laden "space-age" guitar sounds, overlaid with a multi-layered wall of husky, harmonized vocals. Def Leppard is one of only five rock bands with two original albums selling over 10 million copies each in the U.S. The others are Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Eagles and Van Halen.

An excellent rock band. A band before their time with hardcore guitars, and solid drumming. Great vocals timeless melodies. Definately can rock out with Rock of Ages or kick back with Two Steps Behind. And who could sit still through Slang. Been listening to them for 20 years and will be listening from my wheelchair. Good music can make you feel young and Def Leppard does just that.
