"All I Want Is Everything" is a 1996 song by British hard rock band Def Leppard from their album Slang. The song reached #38 on the U.K. Singles Chart. The song has not been played live by the band since the Slang World Tour in 1997. In reference to the song, lead singer Elliot said in the album's commentary that All I Want Is Everything was "demoed as almost a country song, [the song] went through a lot of changes in the studio." Elliot also says that the song has "almost a U2 feel to it", and the "very solemn" lyrics sum up "a lot of what the band was going through at the time: births, deaths, divorces."[1]


The music video was directed by Matt Mahurin and shot at "Studios & Location", USA in August 1996. The video was released in September 1996.
