Founded in 1977, Def Leppard is a heavy metal rock band from Sheffield, England that has redefined the sound of UK rock. Its members Joe Elliott (lead vocalist), Phil Collen (guitar), Rick Savage (bass), Rick Allen (drums), and Vivian Campbell (guitar) are responsible for popular hits like "Rock Ages," "Love Bites," and "Pour Some Sugar on Me." The band's career started to reach success in the early '80s when they released their sophomore album "High 'n' Dry." On that album, the single "Bringin' on the Heartbreak" became one of the first music videos to debut on MTV in 1982.
