"Hello America" is a 1980 song by the British rock band Def Leppard from their debut album, On Through the Night. The lyrics and title of the songs are about the fantasies the band had about touring in America. The single’s B-side, “Good Morning Freedom” has only been released on cd in 2018 on the rareties volume one cd which was part of the CD Collection Part One boxset. The song was featured on a BBC studio session recorded in 1979 and the show has since been bootlegged. A live version of the song is also included on Viva! Hysteria, released in October 2013, although Def Leppard have all but disowned On Through the Night and “Hello America” was one of the first songs to leave the setlist, having never been played live since the release of High 'n' Dry. An alternate recording of the song “Hello America” appeared as a b-side on the “Wasted” single, also an alternate recording. Both were recorded a few months earlier than the main album sessions.more »
