One of only a few bands to have two albums sell at least 10 million copies each in the U.S. Hysteria and Pyromania are two of the greatest rock records ever, featuring such hits as "Photograph", "Rock of Ages", "Foolin'", "Too Late For Love", "Rock, Rock (Til You Drop)", "Women", "Animal", "Love Bites", "Pour Some Sugar on Me", "Armageddon It", "Rocket", and "Hysteria". Famous for ripped jeans, lead singer Joe Elliot's mullet, pioneers in the multi-neon-color fashion, innovators in in-the-round concert setups, British rock band stereotypes, their one armed drummer Rick Allen, electronic drum sets, the guitarists known as the "terror twins" Steve Clark and Phil Collen, and their eccentric bassist/keyboardist Rick Savage. The band was hit with more tragedy when Clark died of alcoholsim in 1991. They are still going strong and their fanbase now spans multiple generations.
Def Leppard is one of the few rock bands from the 1980s that people still care about.
