Def Leppard 1983. Rock Of Ages 1983

Def Leppard's classic single Rock Of Ages reached Number 41 on the UK Top 100 Singles chart today in 1983.

The single was the second to be released from the 'Pyromania' album.

It reached Number 41 on the Top 100 singles chart spending 4 weeks on there in total.

It had entered at Number 45 on 27th August and rose to its peak of 41 the week after.

The single almost became their first UK Top 40 single entry. Had it done so they may have received exposure on Top Of The Pops.

Top 40 and Top 10 success would come later with 'Animal' in August 1987 when it reached Number 6.

The closest the band had been to the Top 40 before this was 'Hello America' getting to Number 45 in March 1980.

In the same week UB40 were at Number One and fellow UK rockers Whitesnake were just below them at Number 42 with 'Guilty Of Love'.
