The album charted at #1 on both the Billboard 200 and the UK Albums Chart. Hysteria was produced by Robert John “Mutt” Lange. The title of the album was thought up by drummer Rick Allen, referring to his 1984 auto accident and the ensuing worldwide media coverage surrounding it. It is also the last album to feature guitarist Steve Clark before his death, although songs co-written by him would appear on the band’s next album, Adrenalize. The album is the follow-up to the band’s 1983 breakthrough Pyromania.
