Wednesday, 16th March 2016

Let's Get Rocked 1992.

Def Leppard released their classic Let's Get Rocked single 24 years ago on this day in 1992 in the UK.

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

It was released on 16th March 1992 reaching Number 2 and spending seven weeks on the UK chart. Three inside the Top 10.

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. It was in week 7 of its 8 week run at Number 1.

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.

Def Leppard Let's Get Rocked - 7" Single Sleeve Quote

"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!."
