Def Leppard albums and songs sales

Roaring into life in 1976, Def Leppard spent the rest of the decade honing their live skills and cultivating an ever growing fanbase, which would culminated in them being signed to the Phonogram/Vertigo label in 1979 and the release of their first album, On Through The Night, in March 1980. Deemed part of the early 1980s burgeoning NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) scene, along side the likes of Saxon, Iron Maiden and Diamond Head, they would go through various trials and tribulations, in career which would see them hitting some crazy highs but also some brutal lows.

Their Diamond certified 80s blockbusters, Pyromania and Hysteria, may be their best-known albums but what about the rest of their discography? Well, please now join us, as we take a look at Def Leppards career sales and find out.

Looking at the big picture: Def Leppard

The New wave of British heavy metal arrives

Following the explosion of the Beatles in the early 1960s, countless British youngsters began dreaming of rock stardom. In pursuing this dream, countless bands were formed throughout the UK, in the late 60s and 70s.

Inevitably, many failed to get noticed, while others went on to become global superstars like Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd. It was a time of great experimentation in music and many new genres and sub genres began to appear, with varying success and longevity.

Musically, in the mid 70s, the UK was awash with the Punk phenomenon and it’s most iconic act, the infamous and notorious, Sex Pistols. Replicating the band, the genre made big headlines and then vanished incredibly fast. The music scene never stays quiet for long though, especially when thousands of young hopefuls are sitting in their bedrooms, teaching themselves guitar, dreaming about being as successful as The Beatles, Led Zeppelin or The Rolling Stones.

Some of these young hopefuls would go on to create a plethora of new groups in 1979, many of which would be identified as being part of the aforementioned New Wave Of British Heavy Metal. Two of the front runners were Iron Maiden and Def Leppard, who both issued highly-hyped, self-produced EPs in 1979, before releasing their debut albums in 1980.

In 1976, a 15-year-old student and bass guitarist Rick Savage created his first band with some schoolmates, within a year, both Joe Elliott (on vocals) and Pete Willis (on guitar) had joined.

Guitarist and talented songwriter Steve Clark, joined next in 1978, with Rick Allen completing the line up on drums. The oldest of them, Joe Elliott, was barely 19 when their initial E.P. came out in January 1979, yet within 2 years they would go from playing dirty pubs and clubs in Northern England, to being played on major US FM stations and touring huge arenas in support of AC/DC and Ozzy Osbourne.

Promising start and Pyromania’s US shocker

Def Leppard issued their debut album On Through the Night in 1980 and both singles, Wasted (#61) and Hello America (#45) were moderate successes in their homeland and the album did well, hitting #15, on an 8-week chart stay. In the US the single Rock Brigade charted at #106 (#6 on Bubbling under chart), while the album charted for 21 weeks, hitting #51. Promising, but not earth shattering.

Their second album, High ‘n’ Dry from 1981, kind of saw them treading water. It’s performance was pretty similar to its predecessor. Amongst its singles, only Let It Go charted, at #76 in the UK and at #34 on US Rock charts. The album went to #26 in the UK and #38 in the US.

These results were even more disappointing, considering the album was produced by the legendary Robert “Mutt” Lange. The South African mastermind, who worked on Highway to Hell and Back in Black for AC/DC and 4 for Foreigner, was one of the most in-demand rock producers in the world. He would go on to create a terrific legacy, producing among others Def Leppard‘s blockbusters (more below), Bryan AdamsWaking Up the Neighbours and then-wife Shania Twain‘s Come on Over.

During the touring for High ‘n’ Dry and then the recording sessions for their upcoming third album, guitarist Pete Willis alcohol problems began to get so severe, that he was dismissed from the band and replaced by Girl guitarist Phil Collen.

In 1983, they returned with the album Pyromania and lead single Photograph. It was another moderate hit in the UK (#66), but it took the US Rock charts by storm, topping them and climbing to #12 in the Hot 100. This was a very surprising and unexpected result for a British heavy metal band.

Accordingly, the album began to get traction, further aided by Rock of Ages hitting #16 (Rock #1) and Foolin’ #28 (Rock #9). 3 more songs made it to the Rock charts, mostly thanks to airplay, and their videos began flooding the MTV channel. Pyromania climbed all the way to #2, blocked only by Michael Jackson‘s Thriller. Competing with Flashdance and The Police‘s Synchronicity too, the album spent 17 non consecutive (12 consecutive) weeks at #4.

When the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) introduced multi-platinum awards in 1984, Pyromania was one of the highest certified, having sold over 6m copies, by that point. Ironically, the album stalled at #18 and dropped out of the charts. After a mere 5 weeks in the UK. Which, while still upsetting to the band, they were somewhat consoled by their monstrous sales in North America.

Their departure from the more aggressive, fast paced sound, of the more traditional NWOBHM bands, to a more melodic, layered sound, made Def Leppard stand out from the crowd. Although the band were originally tagged as being part of the NWOBHM phenomenon in the UK, they would now became an integral act in Glam metals accent, to becoming the most popular genre in the US, for a short period of time in the late 80s.

Within no time, bands like Mötley Crüe and Quiet Riot were starting to have hit singles and albums and numerous other bands were being signed up, left, right and central.

The Hysteria apotheosis surrounded by tragedies

On the last day of 1984, drummer Rick Allen, still only 21, tragically lost his left arm after being involved in a car crash. While he thought his days as a drummer were over, the band refused to keep going without him. After designing a custom drum kit, Allen trained for months, started using his legs to do part of the job and managed to bring his skills back to a level where he was perfectly able to deliver both in the studio and live.

Just like Def Leppard had influenced many bands with Pyromania, they were themselves impacted by the ground breaking success of Jackson‘s Thriller. They recorded their new album, Hysteria, with the idea of creating the Thriller of rock music, an album where every song had the potential to be a single.

Hysterias timing could not have been any better, Glam Metal was ripping up the US charts, which was non better exemplified than by Bon Jovis, Slippery When Wet

At first, Hysteria peaked at a somewhat disappointing #4 position, with lead single Women peaking at #80. In the UK, Animal was released first and provided them with their first Top 40 single, hitting #6. In the US, it was their second single and got to respectable #19.

In the US, each subsequent song started to out do the previous one. Next up, Hysteria peaked at 10, 4th single Pour Some Sugar On Me hit #2, while 5th single Love Bites topped the Hot 100. In-between, the album climbed to the top a year after its release, leading for 6 weeks between July and September 1988. Armaggedon It (#3) and Rocket (#12) rounded up this perfect era.

They also made it big in the UK at last, with Hysteria opening at #1 and spending over 100 weeks on chart, to date.. While most of their sales were coming from the Anglosphere, the Hysteria tour was huge, with 231 dates in North America and Europe.

Just when everything was going so amazingly well for the band, tragedy struck, when songwriter and guitarist Steve Clark, who had been struggling with alcohol for years, died of an overdose. His alcohol problems had went from bad to worse and once drugs were added to the mix, hopes of recovery were reduced even further. Almost inevitably, he passed away on January 8 1991, aged 30. He was replaced by Vivian Campbell.

From top stars to top nostalgia act

Although a major blow, it was not an isolated incident in the glam metal scene, with many instances of misuse and death from drugs. By the end of the 80s, the image of the whole genre had started to deteriorate. Rawer and more stripped down bands like Nirvana started to emerge and thus, the grunge scene was born. Alternative rock, for long an underground genre, suddenly captured the airwaves with R.E.M. leading the way. Soon, the image of 80s glam metal and pop metal, felt somewhat ridiculous, leading many from the new generation to negatively refer to them as hair metal.

Given all this context, added to the the loss of Steve Clark and the departure of Robert Mutt Lange, their comeback wasn’t the sure fire success, that one could expect from a band with back to back monster albums.

Nevertheless, they forged ahead and released their fifth studio album Adrenalize in 1992. The album debuted at #1 in both the UK and the US, remaining there for 5 weeks in the latter and quickly sold millions of copies. It also became their biggest success by far in continental Europe, Latin America or Asia.

Still, its success was short lived and ultimately, was a major drop from their predecessors, both commercially and artistically speaking.

By the time the their sixth studio album was released in 1996, they were already seen as past it and has beens. TV channel and FM radio station exposure had also dried up, with programs dedicated to 80s pop metal music, now a thing of the past. Their albums continued to open with decent first week sales but disappeared from the charts as fast as they had entered.

Their hits never went away though and maybe more importantly, they represent an entire culture that impacted the US strongly during the 80s. It could be the reason why they can still effortlessly sell out stadiums, often pairing with other glam metal bands from the 80s like Mötley Crüe, Whitesnake or Poison. Even more impressively, they made Pollstar’s list of top 10 grossing tours of 2022.

From their early beginnings to their record-breaking albums, this article delves into the band’s incredible success and enduring legacy in the music industry, all of it in numbers, format by format, record by record.

ChartMasters’ method: the CSPC

As usual, I’ll be using the Commensurate Sales to Popularity Concept (CSPC) in order to relevantly gauge the act’s results. It will not only bring you sales information for all albums, physical and download singles, as well as audio and video streaming. In fact, it will really determine the act’s popularity.

If you are not yet familiar with the CSPC method, below is a nice and short video of explaining the concept. I recommend watching it before reading on and to the sales figures. You’ll get the idea in just two minutes.

And if you want to know the full method as well as formulas, you can read the full introduction article.

Now let’s get into the artist’s detailed sales figures!

Def Leppard Album Sales

CSPC Def Leppard album sales breakdowns

Updated Studio Album Sales & Comments

The first two albums were moderate successes upon release, but were reignited in North America, upon the success of their later 1980s albums, with both enjoying subsequent catalogue sales and chart again in the US. By the end of 1984, they combined for 174 weeks inside the Billboard 200.

This pushed American sales over 1.5 million and 2.8 million, respectively. Globally, On Through the Night is now over 2.5 million, while High ‘n’ Dry has around 4 million sales.

Pyromania was certified 6xPlatinum by the end of its US run, reaching Diamond status in 2004. It’s now up to over 10.7 million sales. Catalogue sales also brought it to nearly a million in Canada and nearly as much in Europe. The album now stands close to 13.5 million worldwide.

Hysteria did even better, topping that number with US sales alone. Certified at 12xPlatinum way back in 1998, with catalogue sales, club sales, track equivalent albums and streaming units, it will soon be eligible to 15xPlatinum.

The album has been a good seller everywhere, either with or without initial success. It’s well over a million in the UK and Canada, while closing in half a million units in Germany and not too far away from 20 million globally.

It’s worth noting that both albums continue to sell in pure units. For example, Pyromania has made 5 re-entries on US Top 100 sales charts over the last 3 years, while Hysteria charted in the UK Top 100 in 7 out of the last 9 years.

Adrenalize perfectly used the traction of its predecessors to amass over 6.7 million sales, 3.7 million stateside and 3 million abroad. It could be seen as a surprise for American readers, but even with catalogue sales favouring the 1983 effort, Adrenalize is still higher than Pyromania outside of the US.

From Slang, numbers get much lower and never go back up. Both Slang and Euphoria topped a million, X did half of that and follow ups half of X.

2022’s Diamond Star Halos isn’t that much lower than 2006’s Yeah!, which, considering the massive decline of pure sales, shows that they rely more on a solid fanbase, than general public interest.

Overall, that’s more than 50 million sales on the back of their 12 studio albums. This number would have been higher if it wasn’t for compilations, especially 1995’s Vault, taking away catalogue sales from the main albums. These releases will be added later on, inside the compilation section.

Def Leppard songs sales

Below, we list down results from the artist through physical sales, digital sales and streaming.

Please be aware that when the artist is regarded as the lead act, they are rewarded with 100% of these units. However, featured acts share a 50% piece of the total.

Physical Singles

As a reminder, the weighting is a 10 to 3 ratio between albums and physical singles.

While their early singles had all entered the top 100, in the UK, no single from their first two albums could be rated as a hit. In total, the 6 tracks combined for 220,000 sales globally.

The real breakthrough came with Photograph, which sold over half a million units, most of which came from the US where it peaked at 12. Another top 20 hit, Rock of Ages moved over 400,000 copies, while Foolin’ topped 200,000 sales. Due to the success of Pyromania, a remix version of Bringin’ On The Heartbreak came out in 1984, selling a quarter of million copies worldwide.

They would gain even more success and popularity, thanks to the singles from Hysteria. Released almost only in North America, Women is the lowest seller but still has over 200,000 sales. The title track did close to half a million, while each of the remaining 5 singles moved at least 600,000 copies. Their only chart topper, Love Bites, cracked the million mark, their only track to do so in their career.

In part thanks to its larger success in Europe where physical singles were strong during the 90s, Adrenalize and its singles sold well in this format. The strongest ones were Let’s Get Rocket, which is close to a million and Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad, at nearly 600,000 sales. Another 4 additional singles came out, either globally, in North America or in Europe, shifting over 900,000 sales together.

In late 1993, a not-new not-old album came out, Retro Active. It was a collection of rare material like b-sides, plus unreleased outtakes. This record emerged after the surprise #12 success of the song Two Steps Behind, a 1989 demo which was finished and finalised by popular producer Michael Kamen, as to feature in the 1993 movie Last Action Hero. This song sold 455,000 copies. Among the tracks they regrouped to create Retro Active, Miss You in a Heartbeat, previously part of the Japanese version of Adrenalize, came out as a single and cleared 200,000 sales.

In 1995, the orphan track When Love & Hate Collide – a new track featured on their first compilation Vault – moved over 500,000 units worldwide, with 250,000 from the UK. It charted at #2 there, their best showing ever, tied with Let’s Get Rocked. It was a modest #58 hit in the US, ultimately becoming their final Hot 100 appearance. This was also their last song to reach 6 digits in sales, as their last 9 physical singles shifted less than 30,000 units per release.

Still, their career total is over 10.5 million physical singles, a very good number in this format, especially for a hard rock act.

Digital Songs

As a reminder, the weighting is calculated using a 10 to 1.5 ratio between albums and digital singles.

Def Leppard are an act that has a difficult history, with new formats and platforms. They fought for many years with their label, to prevent them from exploiting their music on iTunes and then on various streaming apps.

They started very strong though, as by early 2007 Pour Some Sugar On Me had already eclipsed the 500,000 US downloads milestone while the format was just getting started. At the time, it was challenging the likes Journey‘s Don’t Stop Believin’ and Queen‘s Bohemian Rhapsody as the very biggest legacy hit. Note for fans: they are actually going on a tour with Journey during the summer of 2024.

Back to digital sales. In 2010, the band decided to delete their catalogue from iTunes. The band was also in an open battle with their label, Universal Records, over royalties issues. They were questioning the fairness of their historical and traditional band/label royalty split, feeling that in a digital world, the label had way less costs to incur and hence shouldn’t need to recoup as much.

Having finally reached some agreements in 2011, for their new material, their big hits were also back in the form of live recordings, thanks to the release of the live album Mirror Ball. Still, the feud continued and in 2012 the band decided to do a Taylor Swift, before Taylor Swift herself, re-recording both Pour Some Sugar on Me and Rock of Ages in a near-identical way to take the royalties for themselves. Hysteria followed in 2013. Jokes apart, the English band was possibly an inspiration for the American diva, as both Def Leppard and Taylor Swift teamed together for a CMT Crossroads episode that became a #1 DVD in 2009.

It took until January 2018 to get the dispute sorted and the entire Def Leppard catalogue returned to iTunes – and arrived on Spotify – pushing a lot of their songs onto the charts.

Through the original years, the live versions, re-recordings and with their contemporary activity, their hits managed to add notable numbers, especially Pour Some Sugar on Me. The 1987 classic stands on 4.2 million sales in total, including 2.5 million downloads in the US.

Hysteria isn’t too far away from 2 million, while Photograph, Rock of Ages and Animal are all million sellers. Maybe surprisingly, their lone chart topper Love Bites isn’t quite there yet, even if it is close.

Why is their only #1 hit, not one of their top 5 digital sellers? It’s a combination of factors. The first one is, the song was never re-recorded, whereas 3 of the top 5 were. The second is, the track wasn’t their top hit outside of North America. The third element is, back in 1988 the song was released in quite favourable times for the group, with radio stations and the public, clamouring for a new Leppard hit, on the back of the hype Sugar had provided them with.

The rest of their 80s catalogue also posts impressive numbers. Foolin’ claims 800,000 sales, Bringin’ On the Heartbreak and Too Late for Love over half a million and 7 other songs standing on 6 digits results. Adrenalize also adds 4 songs at that level, with Let’s Get Rocket leading at over 400,000.

Overall, their total of downloads and ringtones sales is at 18.3 million, which is really good considering they missed out so many key years of sales.

Streaming

Streaming is made up of both audio and video streams. Our CSPC methodology includes both formats to better reflect the real popularity of each track.

The main source of data for each avenue is Spotify and YouTube, respectively. To factor in the growing impact of multiple Asian countries where these platforms aren’t always the go-to site for music streaming, more sources have been added.

In order to account for their real popularity in each relevant country, the below sources have been used along with the mentioned ratios that reflect the market share of each area.

Audio Streams
– South Korea: Genie streams * 2.20 (consistent with Gaon streaming numbers)
– Japan: AWA streams * 100 / 4 (AWA has 4% of the Japanese streaming market)
– Arabic world: Anghami streams
– Sub-Saharan Africa: Boomplay + Audiomack streams
– Elsewhere: Spotify streams * Spotify market shares based on artists’ market distribution

Video Streams
– China* : QQ video streams * 50 if the song is available for audio stream, QQ video streams * 5 elseway (scale built based on known figures for several major artists)
– Elsewhere : Youtube views increased by 10% to account for various local platforms

*since Chinese streaming platforms are mostly video streaming platforms, their streams are weighted on par with YouTube streams.

Audio Stream value – 1,500 plays equal 1 album unit
Video Stream value – 6,750 views equal 1 album unit

Equivalent Albums Sales (EAS) = ( Spotify * ArtistRatio + Genie * 2.20 + AWA * 100 / 4 + Anghami + Boomplay + Audiomack ) / 1500 + ( QQ views* 50(or 5) + YouTube * 1.1 ) / 6750

Top Hits

CSPC Def Leppard top streaming hits

Once again, Pour Some Sugar on Me leads with a comfortable margin. It is past 500 million streams on Spotify, and 700,000 equivalent album sales from streams.

This total includes the 104.6 million streams from the 2012 re-recorded version which has since been removed from the platform. It grants the track an even bigger lead, although there are no match with following songs.

These ones are big on their own yet. Hysteria is past 200 million streams and 300,000 EAS. Love Bites and Photograph are very close to each other at 3-4, both closing in 200,000 EAS. Their top 3 are tracks from the Hysteria album, now that’s an amazing way to follow up a Diamond album!

Rock of Ages, Animal and When Love and Hate Collide are all over 100,000 EAS, demonstrating one more time how strong their catalog is. The latter is especially high with streams, a sign of Def Leppard‘s wider global reach in the 90s.

In a more negative note, 18 of their top 20 tracks are from High ‘n’ Dry, Pyromania, Hysteria and Adrenalize, plus two orphan titles. Their debut and their last 7 albums are left unrepresented. From these releases, the top tracks are Diamond Star HalosKick (10,500 EAS, #23), Euphoria‘s Promises (8,600 EAS, #32) and On Through the Night‘s Wasted (7,800 EAS, #33).

The album Hysteria leads with an impressive tally of 1.5 million EAS. Their discography total stands at 2.6 million.

Def Leppard compilations sales

It sounds fairly logical to add together weighted sales of one era – studio album, physical singles, downloads, streams – to get the full picture of an album’s popularity. For older releases though, they generate sales over various live, music videos and compilation albums.

All those packaging-only records do not create value. They exploit the value originating from the parent studio album with each of its tracks instead. Inevitably, this downgrades catalog sales of the original LP when such compilations are issued.

Thus, to accurately gauge the worth of these releases, we need to re-assign sales proportionally to its contribution of all the compilations which feature its songs. The following table explains this method:

The distribution process

CSPC Def Leppard Vault compilation sales distribution

How do you understand this table? For example, if we check the Vault (Def Leppard Greatest Hits 1980-1995) line, these figures mean it sold 9,465,000 units worldwide. The second statistics column means all versions of all the songs included in this package add for 1,876,203 equivalent album sales from streams across all formats.

The second part (on the right of the table) shows how many equivalent streams are coming from each original album, plus the share it represents in the overall package.

Therefore, the streaming figures convey that songs from Hysteria equate to 68% of Vault (Def Leppard Greatest Hits 1980-1995)‘ tracklist attractiveness. Meaning, it generated 6,462,000 of its 9,465,000 album sales and so on for the other records.

Compilations sales figures listing

The strength of Def Leppard’s hits generated the usual influx of compilations over the years, especially since the release of their first compilation, Vault. This album is now well over 5 million sales in the US, while moving close to 9.5 million units worldwide. It was a top seller in Japan too, with 570,000 sales.

Prior to that, the Retro Active package had already sold nearly 2 million copies. Back to back 2004/2005 compilations Best of and Rock of Ages were released mostly in Europe and in North America, respectively, they combine for 2.3 million sales. The live Mirror Ball from 2011 sold almost 400,000 copies, while their music videos add for over 1.6 million.

CSPC Def Leppard compilation sales distribution

Here is the most underestimated indicator of an album’s success – the amount of compilation sales across all versions that were generated. Due to the dependency of sales of the original studio albums on these releases, they are a key piece of the jigsaw.

These numbers are obtained by applying the method from the section The distribution process to all packages listed under Compilation sales figures listing category.

We can notice the strong dominance of Hysteria with a stunning 10 million units generated across various releases.

So, after checking all the figures, how many overall equivalent album sales has each Def Leppard album achieved? Well, at this point we hardly need to add up all of the figures defined in this article!

Albums CSPC results

In the following results table, all categories display figures in equivalent album sales. If different, pure sales are listed between parentheses.

'Av.' stands for Average, 'LD' for Last Day.

As a reminder:

  • Studio Album: sales of the original album
  • Other Releases: sales of compilations generated thanks to the album
  • Physical Singles: sales of physical singles from the album (ratio 3/10)
  • Download Singles: sales of digital singles from the album (ratio 1,5/10)
  • Streaming: equivalent album sales of all the album tracks (ratio 1/1500 for Audio stream and 1/6750 for Video stream)

Artist career totals

See where the artist ranks among remaining singers


Slowly but surely, the Sheffield band conquered the US, the UK and then the rest of the world from the start of the 80s to 1992.

They peaked with Hysteria, which records phenomenal sales of 33.7 million once everything is added together. It’s the 4th biggest hard rock / metal release of the 80s, only behind history making albums Back In Black by AC/DC, Slippery When Wet by Bon Jovi, and Appetite For Destruction by the Guns N’ Roses.

In that particular ranking, Pyromania is also a sales beast. At over 17 million, it closes the top 10. With all metrics, Adrenalize is also getting close to the magical 10 million threshold, an impressive feat.

High ‘n’ Dry, at 5 million, and On Through the Night, at 2.8 million, complete their top 5. Obviously, remaining albums are on a lower league. It won’t improve with time as they aren’t moving units anymore as shown by the streaming numbers.

Up to date, Def Leppard are on their way to reach 75 million equivalent album sales this year.

Singles CSPC results

The list is compiled in album equivalent sales generated by each song. Therefore, these figures are not merged units of singles formats. Instead, it includes weighted sales of the song’s physical single, download, ringtone and streaming as well as its share among sales of all albums on which it is featured.

Discography results

Thanks to our new ASR (Artist Success Rating) concept, we know that sales represent 31.74 million times the purchase of entire discography. Coupled with total sales, it translates into an ASR score of 263.
