Def Leppard are marking the 33rd anniversary of their 1987 classic, “Hysteria”, this week with a new facts video about the project.

Produced by Mutt Lange, the band’s fourth studio record reached No. 1 in their native UK and in the US, where it went on to achieve Diamond status for sales of more than 10 million while selling more than 30 million copies worldwide.

The set delivered seven singles, with “Love Bites” topping the US Billboard Hot 100 while “Pour Some Sugar On Me” hit No. 2, "Armageddon It" peaked at No. 3 and the title track reached No. 10 on the chart.
