Def Leppard Debut New Stadium-Ready Song ‘Fire It Up’

Def Leppard are a week away from the May 27 release of their new album, Diamond Star Halos, and they've just shared what is presumably the last advance single, "Fire It Up." The track appears third on the album, Def Leppard's first since issuing their self-titled record in 2015, and follows "Kick" and "Take What You Want." It's a stadium-ready track that opens with two bass drum kicks and a handclap, making it a natural crowd participation go-to, especially since drummer Rick Allen confirmed that the group will indeed be playing songs off Diamond Star Halos on the upcoming Stadium Tour with Motley Crue, Poison, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and more.

‘Randy Rhoads: Reflections of a Guitar Icon’ Examines The Brief Life And Big Impact Of Ozzy Osbourne’s Original Axeman

1980 was heavy metal’s breakout year. Like barbarian hordes storming the gates of Rome, the much maligned genre ravaged the pop charts and set young minds ablaze thanks to landmark albums from AC/DC, Judas Priest, Motörhead and Iron Maiden. Spring and fall of this annus metallum were marked by the return of metal’s godfathers, albeit in dueling altered forms. In April, Black Sabbath released Heaven and Hell, their first album to feature dragon-slaying operatic vocalist Ronnie James Dio. Come September, their disgraced former singer would have his revenge, as Ozzy Osbourne issued his classic solo debut, Blizzard of Ozz, which showcased the breathtaking guitar virtuosity of newcomer Randy Rhoads.

Every Song on Harry Styles's New Album Explained

With Harry Styles's release of "Harry's House," fans are treated to another layer of the popular British singer. The album, released May 20, is Styles's third and opens the door to a more vulnerable side to him. He's been open in interviews that this album is one he's immensely proud of because it feels so honest. "I was kind of like, 'It'd be really fun to make an album called Harry's House,' and thought about it being this smaller thing," he told Apple Music, adding that the album "feels like me." He said he treated it like "a day in the life" with himself, using songs that he would want to listen to, including fun music, sad music, and everything in between. "I think while it obviously is a lot more electronic in a lot of places than anything I've made, it's also so much more intimate to me," he shared. "And so much more intimately made . . . And this is my favorite album at the moment, and I love it so much."

Rudy Sarzo Recalls ‘When the Real Randy Rhoads Showed Up’ for Ozzy

Rhoads had left Quiet Riot to join the Blizzard of Ozz lineup in 1979, later bringing bandmate Sarzo into the Black Sabbath singer’s band. But before that, Sarzo was astonished to hear what Rhoads had written for Osbourne because it was so different from his Quiet Riot compositions.
