Great album! Really set the tone for 80's rock.

I LOVE this album it is my F-F-FAVORITE. I give it a 10/10. My Dad got me started on rock 'n' roll. The first band I listened to was Bad Company then Foreigner. My Dad got me hooked on the radio & the first songs I ever remember hearing were Foolin' by Def Leppard & We Are The Champions by Queen. That was it, I was immediately hooked on DEF LEPPARD. My Dad was lucky enough to own Pyromania on casette. Then I got it & still do. He won't EEEVVVEEERRR get it back!!! That was all I listened to. I forgot about all my other music. I was a PYROMANIAC & still AM. Now I have all the albums & they never let me down once. Yea some are different but you get a little of everything ROCK, RAP, COUNTRY, & POP. The whole package & you got to be good to be able to sing & play for anykind of music. AND YOU GUYS ARE!!!!! Guys U are "THE ROCK OF AGES"!!! Ya'll have been my favorite band sense I was 12 when I heard Foolin' & will be FOREVER. JOE, STEVE R.I.P., VIV, SAV (LOVE THE HAIR) & RICK The Best DRUMMER In The WORLD (:),-< LONG LIVE ROCK 'N' ROLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's a smashing album! The cover's so cool, but I still don't know what 'Pyromania' means. There's fire in the picture, so it must have something to do with fire.

I'm sorry people do not speak English, but want to say everything I feel for this band! It really is very good! I love albums like Pyromania (Foolin, Rock of Ages, Rock Rock - 'til you drop ...) High'n'Dry (Let It Go, Bringin' on the heartbreak) and Hysteria (Love Bites, Hysteria, Pour some sugar on me ...). My God, are so great! "No Matter What" runs a little style but I also love! I loved your comment DEF LEPPARD 1977-Forever! Since I wanted to have experienced real this time! I also love Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, Foreigner, Journey, Styx, Creedence Crearwater Revival, Aerosmith, Scorpions ... Wow there are so many! But that's it. At that time there were the real rock! Def Leppard I love you! You changed my life. Big kiss. I hope to go on some show her once!

Pyromania and Hysteria are two of my favorite albums of all time. It was the 80's I was in my 20's and and for some reason the women were calling my Randy, my name's Dan. I finished school quit my job and traveled around Europe for over a year. Pyromania and Hysteria were with me and the soundtrack to that experience. Now whenever I play or hear a song off them I think of the three Italian girls who I met in London that kicked off the biggest drinking /sex binge of my life. Good times, yep, real good times.

Be sure to go to www.hard100.vh1.com to vote for "Photograph" in VH1's Hard 100 countdown. Click the link for Day 2 and vote for our lads as many times as you can; they deserve much more recognition than many bands in this survey!

Caro 09/23/12 2012 02:50:57 AM

Hey kids it's time to vote again!! In addition to "Photograph" on Day 2 of VH1's Hard 100 countdown, VH1 has had the wisdom to add "Rock of Ages" to Day 7 of the voting. So go to www.hard100.vh1.com and support the lads.

Pyromania is an amazing album, I wish they would make a brand new album just as good as this one if not better, the world need more Def Leppard

Quite possibly the most unique and powerful band of all time. Def Leppard was for me a turing point in listening to great music. Poison and other groups had a particular sound, which to me was kind of drab. It sounded the same in most respects with riffs and certain vocal sets. But with Def Leppard it was different, the use of harmony and matched voices gave the songs more punch with each note. Elliot has a very three dimensional voice, which was so important to every song the band had to sing for the audience. Over time, they got even better as time went on, even now in the twenty first century. With their Las Vegas show it was again, a blast from the past, with strong guitars, drums, vocals, and lights, which sent the audience over the edge. No other group has come close to their brand of sound, vibrant singing, and of course the idealogly that once they entered the industry, other groups had a hard time trying to keep up to their energy. And for me, listening to Def Leppard is a treat for those school time memories, or driving on the road with Animal, Hysteria, or Pyromania. Fantastic group. Thank you all for giving us wondeful music.

I am only 14 and Love Def Leppard. These days everyone loves the new music but why when bands like Def Leppard exist! I first got hooked on Foreigner than Aerosmith than Def Leppoard. Pyromania is my favorite album and contains most of my favorite songs. Photograph and Too Late for love are my all time favorites. Its so sad to hear when someone asks you your favorite band and you say Def Leppard and they say who is that. It drives me crazy!
