In 2009 the album had been sold over 12 million times in the States and 25 million copies wee sold worldwide. The album produced 7 hit singles that included; Rocket, Hysteria, Armageddon It, Animal, Pour Some Sugar on Me and Women.

Their fifth studio album saw the release of Adrenalize that reached number 1 in the charts in both the UK and U.S. Hit singles included; Let's Get Rocked and Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad.
1993 saw their next album release entitled, Retro Active, that produced the surprising acoustic hit single, Two Steps Behind. Two years later saw them release their greatest hits album, nearly twenty years after they first formed, called Vault, which produced the UK hit single, When Love & Hate Collide.
