Wow, 25 years already for Hysteria. Where did time go?
All I can really remember is buying the cassette,
keychain & listening to the songs quite alot. What
memories. So, Happy Birthday Hysteria. Forever a
Def Leppard fan, Christine - NYS

I still remember my high school best friend and I being driven to the mall (we were only 15 at the time) in the early evening to pick up the "hysteris" CD on its release date, Tuesday August 3rd, 1987. I ended up listening to the whole album through that night at my friends house. Most people that know me know how important that day would become. I even saved the original blister pack & "longbox" insert. I still have yet to mee the band. You guys are hard to get ahold of. lol

I remember driving to the mall with my best friend on the evening of Tuesday, August 3rd, 1987 to pick up my copy of "Hysteria" on CD. I had been waiting 3 1/2 years for that day. I was already a Def Leppard fan but my interest was taken to a whole new level after that day. Anyone in high school that knew me immediately associates me with the band. I even kept the blister pack with the "longbox" insert. I have yet to meet the bad. You guys are hard to get ahold of. lol

Not to hog up all the bandwidth myself, but, I adore YEAH! and wanted to suggest that the guys do an all American album in the same thought; and I have some suggestions! Listen to these and see if you can't hear them doing it even better than the originals!

Those songs are never to far out of ear shot. I love all the songs on Hysteria that it is not easy to narrow it down to one. I could listen to it all day and not get tired of the songs. An awesome album!!!! :D
