About Wasted

“Wasted” is a song by British rock band Def Leppard. It is the first single, and seventh track, from their debut album On Through the Night. The recording featured on the single is a different version from the On Through the Night LP. The B-Side on the single is “Hello America”, which is also a different recording from the LP. These alternative, single-only versions of “Wasted” and “Hello America” had never been released on CD, until 2018 when they were included as part of the "Def Leppard Collection: Volume One" box set, as the first two tracks of the "Rarities - Volume One" disc. The record was produced by Nick Tauber, who the band selected because of his previous clients, particularly Thin Lizzy. Two other songs, "Rock Brigade" (also a re-recording) and "Glad I‘m Alive,” were recorded during the session but were shelved when the band’s management were displeased with the production, thus resulting in "Wasted" and "Hello America" being released as singles. Tauber’s versions of “Rock Brigade” and “Glad I’m Alive” remain unreleased.
