Tonight’s mystery artists were disappearing into obscurity when a group of strippers put them back on the map. Can you guess who they are or the song that strippers DJs just couldn’t get enough of??

This info comes from a pretty reliable source band member and lead singer Joe Elliot of Def Leppard told this to Rolling Stone Magazine. He told the magazine that the song ‘Pour Some Sugar On Me’ was losing it air play on radio stations and fading to black when a DJ at a strip club starting playing it during spring break in 1987. After that the college kids went home singing the song and requesting radio play. This push helped Hysteria become their best selling album. Today " "Hysteria" turns 40 years old and the band is celebrating with a deluxe box set that comes out 8/4/2017.
