"Wasted" is a song by Britishrock band Def Leppard. It is the first single and seventh track from their debut albumOn 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 alternate, single-only versions of "Wasted" and "Hello America" have never been released on CD, except for on bootlegs. The record was produced by Nick Tauber, whom 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 a single. Tauber's versions of "Rock Brigade" and "Glad I'm Alive" remain unreleased.
