"High 'n' Dry (Saturday Night)" is the 1981 title track by British heavy metal band Def Leppard from their multi-platinum album High 'n' Dry. It was ranked number 33 on VH1's 40 Greatest Metal Songs. It is one of five songs by Def Leppard, which had a promotional video, but however were not single releases. This song was released as a single in Australia.
This song made the "Filthy Fifteen", a list of songs criticized by the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC), an American committee formed in 1985, for having explicit lyrics. The group's mission was "to educate and inform parents" about "the growing trend in music towards lyrics that are sexually explicit, excessively violent, or glorify the use of drugs and alcohol," and to seek the censorship and rating of music. "High 'n' Dry (Saturday Night)" made the list due to lyrics involving "Drug and Alcohol Use". Although there are lines in the lyrics that describe alcohol use and intoxication, the song is generally perceived[according to whom?] to be about having fun on a Saturday night in a rock and roll, albeit hedonistic, lifestyle.
