Def Leppard - Hysteria

"Hysteria" is a love song by the English glam metal band Def Leppard. It is the tenth track on their 1987 album of the same name and was released as the third single from that album in November 1987.

On VH1 Storytellers: Def Leppard, lead singer Joe Elliott revealed that the song title came from drummer Rick Allen. The song peaked at number ten on the Billboard Hot 100, but did not crack the year-end, despite the fact that some of the band's songs that did not crack the top 10 have made appearances in the year-end.
