From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia " Slang " is a 1996 song by the English rock band Def Leppard from their gold album Slang. It reached #17 on the UK Singles Chart. The song is the only one from its parent album to be played after the Slang World Tour of 1996 to 1997, with Def Leppard performing the song most recently during their Viva!
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Slang is the sixth studio album by English rock band Def Leppard, released on 14 May 1996. The album marked a musical departure from their signature sound; it was produced by the band with Pete Woodroffe and was their first album since 1980 not to be produced by Robert John "Mutt" Lange.
The Slang World Tour was a worldwide concert tour by English hard rock band Def Leppard in support of their album Slang, which was released in May 1996. Although Slang was the first Def Leppard album to feature new material with guitarist Vivian Campbell, this was his second tour with the band. Campbell joined Def Leppard just prior to their Adrenalize World Tour in 1992. Musically, Slang was considered a radical departure from the band's signature sound of highly-polished 1980s hard rock.

Rick Savage, Tony Kenning, and Pete Willis, all students at Tapton School in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, formed a band called Atomic Mass in 1977. The band originally consisted of Willis on guitar, Savage on bass guitar after briefly playing guitar, and Kenning on drums. Only 18 at the time, Joe Elliott tried out for the band as a guitarist following a chance meeting with Willis after missing a bus in November 1977. During his audition it was decided that he was better suited to be the lead singer. The band's initial rehearsals took place at Portland Works, and their first gig was in the dining hall in A Block in Westfield School in Mosborough, Sheffield. Elliott proposed the name "Deaf Leopard" which was originally a band name he thought of while designing band posters in art class. At Kenning's suggestion, the spelling was slightly modified in order to make the name seem less like that of a punk band. In January 1978, Steve Clark joined the band. According to Elliott, he successfu...
Def Leppard's debut album, On Through the Night, was released on 14 March 1980. Although the album hit the Top 15 in the UK, many early fans were turned off by the perception that the band was trying too hard to appeal to American audiences by recording songs such as "Hello America" and touring more in the US (supporting Pat Travers, AC/DC, and Ted Nugent); a performance at the Reading Festival in August was marred when audience members expressed their displeasure by pelting the band with beer cans and bottles filled with urine. This incident was partially blamed on a cover story in Sounds music newspaper by the journalist Geoff Barton titled, "Has the Leppard changed its spots?", accusing the band of selling out to the American market. In a documentary on the band recorded for BBC 2, Barton recalls feelings of guilt over the story and having a "stand-up row" with the band's manager, Mensch, backstage at the show. In the documentary series Metal Evolution, Joe Elliott says that the...
Following their breakthrough, the band moved to Dublin in February 1984 for tax purposes to begin writing the follow-up to Pyromania. Mutt Lange initially joined in on the songwriting sessions but then suddenly declined to return as producer due to exhaustion. Jim Steinman (of Meat Loaf's Bat Out of Hellfame) was brought in. However, Steinman worked only briefly with the band, and the recording work was not released. On 31 December 1984, drummer Rick Allen lost his left arm in a car crash on the A57 in the hills outside the band's home city of Sheffield. Allen was driving with his Dutch girlfriend, Miriam Barendsen, when his Corvette swerved off the road on a sharp bend and went through a drystone wall. Despite the severity of the accident, Allen was committed to continuing his role as Def Leppard's drummer and realised that he could use his legs to do some of the drumming work previously done with his arms. He then worked with Simmons to design a custom electronic drum kit. The oth...
Following Hysteria, the band quickly set out to work on their fifth album, hoping to avoid another lengthy gap. Steve Clark's alcoholism worsened to the point that he was constantly in and out of rehab. Recording sessions suffered from this distraction, and in mid-1990, Clark was granted a six-month leave of absence from the band. Clark died from a mix of prescription drugs and alcohol on 8January 1991, in his London home.The remaining band members decided to carry on and recorded the album as a four-piece, with Collen mimicking Clark's style on his intended guitar parts. Def Leppard's fifth album, Adrenalize, was finally released on 31 March 1992. The album simultaneously entered at number one on both the UK and US album charts, staying number one on the latter for five weeks, while also reaching the summit on the Canadian and Australian charts and hitting No. 8 in Germany. The first single, the anthemic "Let's Get Rocked", was an instant hit and remains the band's highest charting...
VH1 revived the band's fortunes in the US in 1998 by featuring them on one of the first episodes of Behind the Music. Re-runs of the episode yielded some of the series' highest ratings and brought the band's music back into the public consciousness (following years of burial by the alternative rock climate). The episode was even parodied on Saturday Night Live. In an effort to capitalise on this new momentum, Def Leppard returned to its classic sound with the 1999 album Euphoria. The first single, "Promises", reunited the band with Mutt Lange and hit the US Mainstream Rock Track charts at No. 1 for three weeks although it did not receive much play on Top 40 radio; it was also a moderate hit in the UK and Canada. Euphoriapeaked at No. 11 in both the UK and US, and at No 14 in Germany, although it was less successful in Canada and Australia. On 5 September 2000, Def Leppard were inducted into Hollywood's RockWalk on Sunset Boulevard by their friend Brian May of Queen. In 2001, VH1 pro...
On 25 April 2008, Def Leppard released their first album of new studio material in six years, Songs from the Sparkle Lounge. The album debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 in the US. The first single was entitled "Nine Lives" and featured country singer Tim McGraw, who co-wrote the song with Joe Elliott, Phil Collen, and Rick Savage. A tour in support of the album began on 27 March 2008 in Greensboro, North Carolina, with Styx and REO Speedwagon. They also played several European rock festivals. An arena tour of the UK took place in June in which the band co-headlined with Whitesnake and were supported by Black Stone Cherry. The band then returned to Europe before coming back for a second leg of the UK tour in June. The first of these dates was at the Glasgow SECC on 17 June. Again they were joined by Whitesnake; however, hard rock band Thunder supported at some of these shows. Black Stone Cherry continued to support most of the dates, including some of the Thunder ones. Six shows...

A Def Leppard előzményének tekinthető az Atomic Mass együttes, melyet 1977-ben alapított Rick Savage basszusgitáros, Pete Willis gitáros és Tony Kenning dobos. Első próbájukat 1977-ben egy kanálgyárban tartották meg. A tagok ilyenkor még mind tinédzserek voltak és a Sheffield-i Tapton School iskolába jártak. Willisnek köszönhetően hamarosan énekest is találtak, az akkor 18 éves Joe Elliott személyében. Legelső koncertjüket karácsonykor adták az iskolájukban, öt néző előtt. A koncerten hat szá...
On Through the Night, High 'n' Dry
1979 decemberében neki láttak az első albumuk munkálatainak, melyek a Startling Studios-ban zajlottak Ascotben. A produceri munkálatokat Tom Allomra bízták aki többek között a Judas Priest és a Black Sabbath albumain is dolgozott. A lemez On Through the Night címmel 1980. március 14-én jelent meg. Az angol UK Albums Chart listán a 15., míg az amerikai Billboard 200-on az 51. helyen nyitott. Kislemezként olyan dalokat jelentettek meg az albumról, mint a Rock Brigade, Hello America, és a Wasted...
A harmadik album felvételei már 1982 januárjában megkezdődtek a londoni Battle, East Sussex és Battery stúdiókban. A producer ismét Robert John "Mutt" Lange volt, a nagylemez pedig Pyromania címmel jelent meg 1983. január 20-án. A kiadását már a világ minden táján a Vertigo intézte. A sikeres turnék és az előző albumok révén már nagy érdeklődés kísérte az album megjelenését, mely végül nem várt sikert aratott. A Billboard 200-as listáján a 2., míg az UK Albums Chart-on a 18. helyet szerezte m...
A Def Leppard az amerikai stílusú hard rock egyik meghatározó együttese. A A brit heavy metal új hullámával kerültek nyilvánosságra, színtiszta brit heavy metalt igazándiból sosem játszottak. Már a korai albumaikon (On Through the Night - 1980, High 'n' Dry - 1981) is sokkal közérthetőbben, hard rockosabban szólaltak meg, mint a kortárs Iron Maiden, Saxon vagy Judas Priest albumok. Egyedi, felismerhető zenei stílusuk az 1983-ban megjelent Pyromania albumon kristályosodott ki, melyet a többszólamú vokálok, a könnyedén rögzülő refrének, dallamos/slágeres hard rock számok jellemeznek. Ez az irányvonal tovább folytatódott az 1987-es Hysteria albumon, némileg még jobban a rádiórockos vonalra kihegyezve. Stílusokat tekintve zenéjükben a hard rock elemek mellett megtalálható az AOR dallamossága, a dallamos gitárriffek/szólók valamint a hair vagy pop metal slágeressége is. Ez utóbbit erősítették 80-as évekbeli megjelenésükkel is, melyet a feltupírozott hajak, exravagáns, színes ruhák jellem...
A Def Leppard az 1980-as évek egyik legsikeresebb rockegyüttese volt. Első kettő, még heavy metalos albumukkal (On Through the Night, High 'n' Dry) az angol heavy metal újhullámának egyik vezető zenekara lettek. Az igazi áttörést az 1983-ban kiadott Pyromania hozta el, mely az ezt követő 1987-es Hysteriaval egyetemben gyémántlemez minősítést kapott. Áttörésük nagyrészt az MTV zenecsatornának köszönhető, valamint az olyan slágeres számaiknak, melyeket a poporientált közönség is könnyedén meg tudott emészteni. Ugyanakkor sikerüket annak is köszönhették, hogy általában mindig azt játszották amit a közhangulat megkívánt. A kritikusok és a rajongók nagy része is a Pyromania és a Hysteria albumokat tartja életművük legerősebb produktumainak, melyekkel meghatározták a 80-as évek közepének/második felének dallamos hard rock irányvonalát. Számtalan akkor felbukkanó együttesen érezhető volt e két lemez hatása, elég ha csak a legismertebb együttes a Bon Jovinevét említsük. Az 1990-es évek elej...
Phil Collen gitáros szerepelt Sam Kinison amerikai humorista 1988-ban megjelent Have You Seen Me Lately? albumának "Wild Thing" című dalában, bár nevét nem tüntették fel.
