Dangerous

Album: Def Leppard (2015)
  • This came from one of guitarist Phil Collen's demos and was initially titled "Dangerous Drug" until vocalist Joe Elliott suggested shortening the name. "I started it a few years ago; I think I had just been working with (former Def Leppard producer) Mutt Lange on something," Collen told Billboard magazine. "We copied it exactly. I redid the guitars, just a slightly different guitar sound. We didn't change anything musically at all."
