Pour Some Sugar on Me (4:52)

Cover of Hysteria

From Hysteria and 28 other releases

“Pour Some Sugar on Me” is a song by British hard rock band Def Leppard from their 1987 album Hysteria. It reached number 2 on the U.S. Hot 100. It later became an MTV classic, and is generally regarded as the band’s signature song.

Although the band was nearing the end of recording sessions for Hysteria in 1986, producer Mutt Lange felt that the album was still lacking a song that would have an appeal beyond the hard rock fans who had bought Pyromania. That song came to him during a 5 minute coffee break. According to the Pour Some Sugar Songfacts, the idea for this song was taken from a line in the 1969 song “Sugar, Sugar .” Near the end of that song, there is a line that goes “Pour a little sugar on me, baby.”
