Originally formed in 1977 in Sheffield, England by five teenagers who really liked glam rock, '''Def Leppard''' became grouped with the NWOBHM before turning early-MTV pop-rock sweethearts. After kicking out a founding guitarist for too much drunken tomfoolery (Pete Willis), they released a well-received rock album (''Pyromania''), lost another sixth of a member (Rick Allen's left arm), released a phenomenally successful pop-rock record (''Hysteria''), which was essentially aiming to be "the hard rock version of ''[[Music/MichaelJackson Thriller]]''", then the ''other'' original guitarist drank himself to death over the course of a few years (Steve Clark).

* HairMetal: The band themselves deny that they were part of the genre and Joe Elliott has been somewhat dismissive of other hair bands when asked about Leppard's association with the style. They count the British glam bands from the 1970s, such as [[Music/MarcBolan T. Rex]] and Music/{{Sweet}}, as key influences. However it seems more a reaction to ignorant media types pigeonholing the band than genunine animosity as Leppard have toured with MotleyCrue, Poison and SteelPanther amongst others.
