About this deal

Still Managed to Stay at Number One on the Billboard Charts for 6 Weeks in 1992 and Sell Over 8 Million Copies Worldwide. Rolling Stone astutely described Adrenalize as “a seemingly unending string of energetic, hook-heavy songs about girls”, and after “Let’s Get Rocked” powered up to No.

The album featured its fair shares of lascivious rockers (“Make Love Like A Man,” “Personal Property,” “Tear It Down”), but they were tempered with soaring, radio-friendly anthems such as “Heaven Is” and the glorious widescreen ballad “Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad. Adrenalize is the fifth studio album by English rock band Def Leppard, released on 31 March 1992 through Mercury Records. From the first, this was a band that gloried in the power of heavy metal’s musical gestures — the towering majesty of a power riff, the momentary freedom of a guitar break, the exhilaration of a singer’s scream — and as the group has grown, its ability to manipulate that vocabulary has expanded to the point that its songs have become mini-masterpieces of aural impact. The album featured huge singles such as "Let’s Get Rocked" and "Make Love Like A Man" and debuted at No 1 in both the UK and USA (and went on to sell over 7 million copies).

Cumulatively, all this activity led to Adrenalize yielding further multi-platinum rewards for this seemingly invincible quintet blessed with an inherent knack for facing down the odds and coming up triumphant. The band included a re-recording of Hysteria B-Side 'Tear It Down' due to it's popularity after the 1989 MTV Awards. Indeed, the album would go on to sell more than seven million copies worldwide, remaining Def Leppard's last studio album to achieve major mainstream success. Although the title pretty much sums up the idea behind the tune, the band is wise enough to recognize that when it comes to love songs, what gets said matters far less than how it gets said.

No mean feat for a hard rock/metal album released while grunge superstars such as Nirvana and Pearl Jam were at the height of their fame. I was sitting there with him [Clark] when he played along to the original parts,” he later told Classic Rock’s Geoff Barton. This was also the band's first album since 1980's On Through the Night not to be produced by Robert John "Mutt" Lange. in the UK and cracked the Billboard Top 20, the album planted its flag at the summit of the UK and US album charts.Yet, after Allen courageously mastered a customized kit, Leppard played on, with Hysteria living up to its name, selling a whopping 25 million copies worldwide and spawning no less than seven hit singles. White Lightning" is dedicated to the memory of Clark, [7] who has writing credits on six of the album's ten tracks.

Accordingly, Collen felt Clark’s loss especially deeply when he shouldered the burden of playing all the guitars on Adrenalize. Adrenalize, Def Leppards fifth studio album from 1992, followed the enormous Hysteria (released in 1987) and cemented the band as the dominant arena rock band.

And there are hooks of every sort on Adrenalize, from broad strokes like the gloriously harmonized chorus of “Heaven Is” to ear-catching details like the little yodel Elliott slips into “Personal Property. With the album’s lead cut, the ridiculously infectious “Let’s Get Rocked,” setting the tone, Adrenalize again delivered in spades.

Naturally, his bandmates were devastated, but thanks to their close-knit friendship, the group continued, in some cases working on multi-track demos Clark and fellow guitarist Phil Collen had prepared for Leppard’s next album. Type Def Leppard in the box under the ARTISTA column heading and Adrenalize in the box under the TÍTULO column heading. Spawning seven singles, four of them – " Let's Get Rocked", " Make Love Like a Man", " Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad", and " Stand Up (Kick Love into Motion)" – were major hits. Def Leppard remain one of only five rock groups who can claim two separate original 10 million plus selling albums in the US, the others are The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Van Halen. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.In fairness, the band’s tardiness isn’t entirely the product of foot dragging, as the death of guitarist Steve Clark undoubtedly slowed this album (and doubled fellow guitarist Phil Collen’s workload) even more than the loss of drummer Rick Allen’s arm complicated the completion of Hysteria. There’s no overriding concept to the album, no sense of the group’s confronting its demons or wrestling with the problems of the world; instead, what we get is a seemingly unending string of energetic, hook-heavy, gosh-we-luv-’em songs about girls. Adrenalize is so relentlessly catchy that it almost seems as if the band is about to abandon its heavy-metal roots for the greener fields of hard pop. Fans would have been forgiven for worrying whether Def Leppard could survive Steve Clark’s loss, yet when Adrenalize was released, on March 31, 1992, they could breathe a collective sigh of relief. Adrenalize simply makes that connection more explicit, proving in the process that Def Leppard is one of the catchiest bands in rock.
