Def Leppard is an English rock band that formed in 1976 and found commercial success through the 1980s. Their sophomore albums released in 1981 called “High ‘n’ Dry” was produced by the legendary Mutt Lange. He helped the band define their hard rock style that led to arena rock fame. This album included the hit single “Bringin’ On The Heartbreak”, which was one of the first music videos played on MTV in 1982. Their album “Pyromania” was released two years late in 1983 and included major hit singles like “Rock of Ages” and “Photograph”. A year late on New Years Eve 1984, drummer Rick Allen was in an auto accident the cost him his left arm.

The band supported Allen as he adjusted his drumming techniques and utilized his feet along with his right arm on a custom drum kit. The band was able to continue and released their landmark album “Hysteria” in 1987 which included hits singles like “Animal”, “Hysteria”, “Armageddon It”, “Rocket”, and arguably their biggest hit “Pour Some Sugar On Me”. The band has continued to be active both touring and recording. Their latest album called “Diamond Star Halos” was released in 2022.

Journey is an American rock band that formed in 1973 and found most of their commercial success between 1978 and 1987. Throughout their career, Journey has released legendary hits like “Anyway You Want It”, “Faithfully”, “Open Arms”, and “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)” – the latter having a remixed version featured in season 4 of Stranger Things and inspired Chris Daughtry to create his version of the song with Lzzy Hale of Halestorm.

All of which helped Journey achieve lifelong success as a headlining arena rock band. In 1981, Journey released their most monumental hit single “Don’t Stop Believin”, which is now synonymous with The Sopranos after playing during the show’s infamous series finale. The band has been actively touring and released their latest album called “Freedom” in 2022.
