30 years after Def Leppard poured some sugar on us and warned us that love bites, 'My Classic Album' celebrates the phenomenal 'Hysteria'.

Mike is joined by Tigertailz and Midnite City frontman Rob Wylde who was just ten years old when 'Hysteria' was unleashed on the world. Mike and Rob look into the extraordinary story of the making of the album including the horrific accident and inspirational comeback of drummer Rick Allen.

Who was the producer and songwriter initially recruited to produce 'Hysteria' when Mutt Lange was unavailable?

Which song on the album do Mike and Rob believe could have been a single despite Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen calling it 'the weakest on the album'?

Do Def Leppard really want Jesus to go to Hell?

PLUS Mike reads out your thoughts and comments and reveals the 'Hysteria' track you chose as your favourite!

All this and much more in our 30 Years of 'Hysteria' special!
