Def Leppard's classic Pyromania album was certified six times platinum in the USA on this day in 1984.

The band's third studio album had been released on 20th January 1983 in North America.

It reached Number Two on the Billboard Top 200 chart in May 1983 spending two weeks there.

It was certified six times Platinum on 12th October 1984. Just over one year since the North American leg of the 1983 tour had ended.

The album sold over 7 million copies in the USA by late 1988 and by 2004 had sold over 10 million and earned the band its second Diamond award.

It unexpectedly re-entered the Billboard chart in September 2014 for another six weeks. This brought its total weeks on the Billboard Top 200 chart to 122.
