High 'n' Dry is the second studio album by the English Hard rock band Def Leppard, released on 11 July 1981. "High 'n' Dry (Saturday Night)", ranked #33 on VH1's 40 Greatest Metal Songs. High 'n' Dry was Pete Willis' last full-time album with Def Leppard. It charted at #38 on the Billboard 200 and #26 on the UK Albums Chart.
Following the success of Pyromania, High 'n' Dry was reissued on 31 May 1984 with two bonus tracks:
- "Bringin' On the Heartbreak" (Remix), essentially the same recording with a few synthesiser overdubs. The remix was released in 1984 as a single, peaking at #61 in the US charts.
- "Me & My Wine" (Remix), a remixed version of a 1981 B-side.
Videos for both were made, featuring Phil Collen (who was not in the band at the time of the album's recording). Both bonus tracks were omitted from the mid-1990s re-releases of the album.
