24 Years Ago Def Leppard At Number 2 In The UK With Let's Get Rocked

Monday, 4th April 2016

Let's Get Rocked 1992.

Def Leppard's classic single Let's Get Rocked hit Number 2 in the UK singles chart 24 years ago on this day in 1992.

The first single to be released from the 'Adrenalize' album and their first UK release since 'Rocket' in January 1989.

It entered at Number 6 before rising to 2 and narrowly missed out on the Number 1 spot by just 146 copies.

The Shakespears Sister song 'Stay' beat it to the top spot in week 7 of its 8 week run at Number 1.

This was the band's biggest hit in the UK at the time only surpassed by 'When Love & Hate Collide' which also reached Number 2 in 1995.

The single was released on 16th March 1992 and spent a total of 7 weeks on the chart. Three inside the Top Ten.

It was the first of four Top 20 singles from the album in the UK.

The song was the first release after the death of guitarist Steve Clark. It was also the only single to be released as a four piece before the band announced their new guitar player Vivian Campbell.

It was first performed by the band as a four piece on BBC TV show Top Of The Pops in late March (the music was playback with Joe singing live).

The first 'live' performance was 15th April 1992 in Dublin, Ireland during Vivian's first show with the band.

"You hold in your hands the first single from our new album, ADRENALIZE. A simple little ditty, Let's Get Rocked just about sums up our feelings about life."

"Also, check out Only After Dark, a Mick Ronson song we've always liked. Mick's been ill and this track is our acknowledgement to his importance...It sure feels good to be back. Play it LOUD!."
