Band Name Origins:

  • DEF LEPPARD - In November 1977, the first Def Leppard rehearsal takes place in Sheffield (UK). Lead singer Joe Elliott & the members renamed the band from Deaf Leopard (a name first coined by him at school in 1975) to Def Leppard. He wanted to use the odd spelling idea provided by the band Led Zeppelin's logo. Submitted by: Ronk
  • When the band was still in school, they used to practice in the basement of Joe Elliott's house. One day they decided on a name, and Joe told his mum. "The name of our band is The Leopards." His mum replied, "Well, you're going to be a bunch of deaf leopards if you keep playing that loudly." Submitted by: Geno

Stupid Band Names:

  • You should never use the word "def" in a band name. Some people might listen to your music and wish they were deaf. Submitted by: Travis

Lighter Side of Serious Bands:

"Release Me"
Def Leppard has put out their box set CD Collection Volume One, which collects all their 80s albums and their 1979 debut EP AND a bonus live CD together. On top of that there is a rarities disc of B-sides, single edits, remixes and more. One of those rarities is a B-side to the hit 'Rocket' (a cover of Englebert Humperdinck's 1967 hit 'Release Me') that was recorded by the band with a guitar tech at the vocals and this was issued out not under the Def Leppard name but as by 'Stumpus Maximus and the Good Ol' Boys'. Strange enough, that song itself went to #6 on the pop charts in Greece. Anyway, I was playing this CD in my car and my stereo was telling the song title and artist on the display (every track was listed as being by 'Def Leppard' until this song came on) and then my stereo indicated that the track was 'Release Me' by 'Stumpus Maximus and the Good Ol' Boys'! The liner notes state that this song was done as a prank and a backstage gimmick by the band and let me tell you, folks - it's AWFUL. Absolutely horrid. I love Def Leppard and I've seen them live twice but this recording - yeeeccchhh!!!

Hidden Messages:

"Love Bites"
At the end of Love Bites, the 'voice' does not say "Jesus of Nazereth, go to Hell". From a documentary, they say Mutt Lang, an American, was always making fun of their British accent. So at the end where it sounds like someone is saying Hell, its mutt lang saying "Bloody Hell" in a thick english accent.

"Love Bites/Hysteria"
At the very end of the song the same voice that says "If you've got love in your sites, watch out, love bites" also says "Jesus of Nazareth, go to Hell."

Backwards Messages:

"Rock Of Ages"
In the guitar solo of the song, one can faintly hear incoherent mumbling. After some investigation, I learned that they were the words "Brezhnev's got Herpes" and "F*** the Russians!". Makes sense considering the time period.
Submitted by: carly_carlz
The reversible lyrics, "we're fighting for the gods of war"; the "Gods of War" chorus part was used reversibly throughout the instrumental break of the song, and the very beginning.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Having an one armed drummer"
Rick Allen lost his arm in a car accident in 1984 because of an infection after, so he's learned to work around that by playing with his feet and remaining arm.

"3 Shows, 3 Continents, 1 Day"
Def Leppard entered the Guinness Book of World Records by performing three concerts on three continents in one day (Tangiers, Morocco; London, England; and Vancouver, Canada) - October 23, 1995. Africa, Europe, North America. Is this what Prince had in mind when he wrote 'Around the World in One Day'?

"RCA Logo Parody"
The debut album from Def Leppard is the 'Def Leppard EP' released in 1979 and the album cover is a parody of the painting His Master's Voice (the logo used by RCA which depicts a dog named Nipper listening to a Victrola record player), with a leopard in place of the dog.
