Def Leppard's classic single Stand Up (Kick Love Into Motion) reached the Number One spot on the Billboard Rock Singles chart 23 years ago today.

The single was the fourth to be released from the 'Adrenalize' album in the USA and hit number one on this day in 1993.

It reached number 34 on the main Billboard Top 100 singles chart spending 15 weeks on there in total.

Stand Up - Australian CD Single Sleeve Quote

"Our fourth single, Stand Up cleverly combines motorcycle speak with your typical Def Lepp love tune. Check out our two managers acting in the vid. You figure out which characters they're playing."

"Additional tracks for the single include an old Elliott tune "She's Too Tough" as well as a version of "Elected" with Steve Clark on it from Tilburg, Holland (vintage mid '87). "Let's Get Rocked" comes from a club date we played in Bonn, Germany in May of '92."
