"Def Leppard" are an English Rock music/rock band formed in 1977 in Sheffield as part of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement. Since 1992, the band has consisted of Rick Savage, Joe Elliott (lead vocals), Rick Allen (drummer)/Rick Allen (drums, backing vocals), Phil Collen (guitar, backing vocals), and Vivian Campbell (guitar, backing vocals). This is the band's longest-standing line-up.

The band's strongest commercial success came between the early 1980s and the early 1990s. Their 1981 studio album/album High 'n' Dry was produced by Robert Lange/Robert John "Mutt" Lange, who helped them begin to define their style, and the album's stand out track "Bringin' On the Heartbreak" became one of the first rock videos played on MTV in 1982. The band's next studio album Pyromania (album)/Pyromania in 1983, with

"Photograph (Def Leppard song)/Photograph" as the lead single, turned Def Leppard into a household name. In 2003, the album ranked number 384 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

It's a mantle we don't deserve. That's not what we're about. We do big pop songs with bombast -- and it's the bombast and the production thing that allude to being metal more than it really is.
