when I was a kid I remember trading my copy of sir-mix-a-lot's Swass to a friend in exchange for his copy of Hysteria.
I'm old.

I'm old enough to remember that this record sucked when it came out. Pyromania is and was a million times better. One-armed drummers cannot rock.

Why is hits in quotes? Those were actual hits.

@4 -- derek, goin all the way back to High n Dry! Deep in the cassette collection. FACT: 4 songs on this album were indeed Billboard Top 100 hits in the US.

this was one of the first tapes i bought with my own money. one notable thing about def leppard is that they are re-recording every song/album in their catalog to get a better deal on download royalties. i think that's rad! not a lot of bands could pull that off so many years later.

I was 6 when this came out and even I knew then that it was lame.

I also knew that Appetite ruled.

And still does.

@7 Amen. Appetite is gospel. I used to practice the Axl shuffle in the mirror to Paradise City. Have you seen Joe Elliot's shredded pants in the Pour Some Sugar On Me video, though? I wanted some of those so bad when I was a kid.

I was working as a hard-rock DJ when this record came out, and I couldn't get with that drum sound, but it's worn better than I would've thought. I truly love "Pour Some Sugar on Me." (#1 stripper anthem!) I sold Appetite for Destruction shortly after I bought it. I could only take so much of Axl's screech.

Both albums took forever to take off. It was actually summer of 88 when they were dueling for supremacy.

Appetite blew me away but I have fond memories of Hysteria - both tapes I managed to re-record from CD. You know, just to be sure I got that high-fidelity sound...
