"Stand Up (Kick Love into Motion)"

"Stand Up (Kick Love into Motion)" is a 1993 single by British hard rock band Def Leppard from their multi-platinum album Adrenalize. The song reached #1 on the Billboard Album Rock charts, and #34 on the Billboard Hot 100.[1] This was the fourth single from the Adrenalize album.

Phil Collen, according to a statement on the Rock of Ages and Best Of compilations albums, says that this song was written at Wisseloord Studios while Def Leppard was recording the album Hysteria. It was written by Collen and Steve Clark. This song was not included on Hysteria, since the band thought it was very similar to the song "Hysteria".


The music video was directed by Matt Mahurin,[2] and features Def Leppard managers Peter Mensch and Cliff Burnstein as a business man and baseball player, respectively. Filming took place on 26 October 1992. The outdoors footage was captured near Central Park in New York City.

The video peaked at number 3 on the US MTV Top 20 Countdown.
