35 Years Ago DEF LEPPARD's WOMEN Single At #80 In The US Billboard Chart

Women 1987. Women 1987

Def Leppard's classic Women single peaked at Number 80 on this day in 1987 in the USA.

The first single to be released from the 'Hysteria' album in North America.

It was released on 11th August 1987 reaching Number 80 and spent only five weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The main Hysteria album had been issued there (as in the rest of the world) on 3rd August.

It entered the Hot 100 chart on 22nd August at Number 94 and would only spend five weeks on the chart.

In week two it would go up to Number 86 before hitting its peak of 80 on 5th September 1987.

It would then drop to Number 85 the following week before ending its run on 19th September at Number 92.

The following six singles would go on to give the band six Top 20 hits including a Number One, two and three with 'Love Bites', 'PSSOM' and Armageddon It.

The follow up single 'Animal' cracked the Top 40 with third single 'Hysteria' entering the Top Ten in March 1988.

The song was chosen to be the lead single in the USA because they wanted to let the hardcore fan base from the 'High 'n' Dry' and 'Pyromania' days know they were back after the four year gap.

The single let the band's hardcore fan base know they were back but did not set the charts alight.
