Formed in Sheffield, England in 1977, Def Leppard spearheaded the new wave of British metal with their hard rock sound. They had their American breakthrough in the early 80s with the album, “Pyromania,” and continued to make music despite the loss of band members and numerous tragedies. In fact, in 1987, they found even more success with the “Hysteria” record. Though their popularity waned during the grunge movement, they gained new found fame in the new century thanks to VH1 and interest from contemporary artists.
