Def Leppard's Armageddon It music video. Hysteria album 1987. The actual line of "Armageddon It" is meant to be a word play on the line "Are You Gettin' It", thought up by the band during the recording sessions for the Hysteria album. The vocal style of the song is described as "Eddie Cochran meets T.Rex", according to singer Joe Elliott.
The video for the song was the first to feature Def Leppard in a live arena setting. On February 12 & 13 1988, the band recorded two shows at the McNichols Arena in Denver, Colorado for a future live film release. However, a month later, "Armageddon It" was set to be released as the fourth single off the popular "Hysteria" album and a promo video clip was urgently needed.
From the band's end, there was hesitation to film another concept video. While they were happy with the results for "Hysteria" (the single) and "Animal", they were very unsatisfied with the way "Pour Some Sugar on Me" had turned out for its concept.
Therefore, an idea was pitched to quickly create a video edited from the Denver footage. It was another hit in the UK, reaching the Top 20. Months later, it was released in the United States and was even more successful, reaching the Top 3.
However, Pour Some Sugar on Me was the first song used there for the "live" concept (in fact, many of the scenes are the same in the two) but instead of filming a different video, slight changes were made using footage filmed in October at the Omni in Atlanta, Georgia.
Lyrics:
Ya better come inside when you're ready to
But no chance if ya don't wanna dance
You like four letter words when you're ready to
But then you won't 'cos you know that you can
You got it, but are you gettin' it?
You say that love is won when you get some
But then your finger won't trigger the gun
You know you (ya) can't stop it
so don't rock it
You know you got it
Hey, but are you gettin' it?
really gettin' it?
Come get it from me
Gimme all of you lovin' - ev'ry little bit
Gimme all that you got - ev'ry bit of it
Ev'ry bit of your lovin - oh, c'mon live a bit
Never want it to stop
Yeah, but are you gettin' it? - Armageddon it!
Ooh, really gettin' it? - Yes, Armaggedon it!
You try comin' on when you need some.
But then you don't 'cos you already did
Yeah, you jangle your jewels while your shakin' ya.
And drive the pretty boys outta their heads
You got it, but are you gettin' it?
You flash your bedroom eyes like a jumpin' jack.
Then play it pretty with a pat on the back
You know you (ya) can't stop it
So don't rock it
You know you got it
Hey, but are you gettin' it?
Ooh, really gettin' it?
Come get it from me
[Repeat Bridge]
[Repeat Chorus]
C'mon, Steve, get it
[guitar solo]
Take it, take it, take it from me
I got an itchy finger following me
Pull it, pull it, c'mon trigger the gun
'Cos the best is (a) yet to come, I say
'Cos the best is yet to come
Are you gettin' it? Really gettin' it?
Yes, are you gettin' it, really gettin' it?
Oh, come get it from me
Gimme all of you lovin' - ev'ry little bit
Gimme all that you got - ev'ry bit of it
Ev'ry bit of your lovin' - Oh come on live a bit
Never want it to stop - Oh, are you getting it?
Gimme all of your lovin' - Ooh really gettin' it?
Gimme all that you got - Oh are you getting it?
Gimme all of your lovin' - Oh live a bit
Gimme all that you got - Whoa, live a bit
You've got to live it - gimme all of your lovin'
Ooh baby live it - gimme all that you got
C'mon and give it - ev'ry bit of your lovin'
Oh come on and give it - Never want it to stop
Oh are you gettin' it? - Gimme all of your lovin'
Ooh really gettin' it? - Gimme all that you got
Oh are you gettin' it? - Ev'ry bit of your lovin'
Oh live a bit - Never want it to stop
