Def Leppard 1987. Def Leppard Hysteria

Def Leppard released their classic Hysteria single 34 years ago on this day in 1987 in the UK.

The third single to be released from the Hysteria album in the UK.

It was released on 16th November 1987 reaching Number 26 on the singles chart.

Previous UK single discographies (including one in the 'Action' booklet from 1994) had the release date listed as 23rd November. This has since been corrected to the 16th via magazine new stories, press releases and UK chart entry information.

The 23rd was the release date of the special edition 12" collectors edition pack. Many other UK singles were released in the same way over two different weeks.

The follow up to 'Animal' which had reached Number Six in August and 'Pour Some Sugar On Me' which reached Number 18 in October.

The first week of release saw the single released on regular 7", 12" and cassette featuring new B Side song 'Ride Into The Sun'.
