10 Songs, 45 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The follow-up to Hysteria and their first album without guitarist Steve Clark, Adrenalize marked the beginning of a new era for Def Leppard. Party anthem and Bart Simpson tribute “Let’s Get Rocked” sets the cocksure tone for bawdy rocker “Make Love Like a Man” and the stacked backing vocals of “Heaven Is” and “I Wanna Touch U,” while lovelorn power ballads “Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad” and “Tonight” provide a pop foil to the moody, seven-minute epic “White Lightning.”

Just awful.

I was a HUGE Def Leppard fan in the 80s/90s, there wasn't a bad song on Pyromania and Hysteria. I remember the huge buildup and excitement about Adrenalize around summer of 1992 and I even remember where I was when I first heard Lets Get Rocked. I also remember hating it. This is Def Leppard's jump the shark moment. I think Steve Clark was the principal songwriter and riffmaster, and with him out in rehab the songs sounded like a different animal (no pun intended). The Joe Elliot vocals were there, the Rick Allen one-armed drumming was on point as always, but the songs sounded hollow and sophomoric (lots of "Lets get the rock out of here" and reminding us over and over again that "I'm a man and you are a woman.) Just awful.
