22 Years Ago DEF LEPPARD's PROMISES Hits Number One On UK Rock Chart

Def Leppard 1999. Promises 1999

Def Leppard's classic single Promises/Back In Your Face was at Number 1 on the rock chart and 41 on the main UK singles chart on this day in 1999.

The first single to be released from the Euphoria album.

The single had been released on 12th July but came almost six weeks after their live TV appearance on TFI Friday which didn't help its chart position.

It entered the Top 100 chart on this day at its peak position of 41.

In total it spent only two weeks inside the Top 100 and fell to Number 88 in week two.

The first ever Double A-Side single to be released in the UK alongside 'Back In Your Face' which took top billing on the second of two CD singles.

Unlike 'Promises' no promo video was made for 'Back In Your Face' although it was taped for Top Of The Pops (alongside Promises and Goodbye). All three songs were never aired due to the low chart position.
