Apparently I was not aware of a 4:12 version of this song that appeared on the 30th anniversary 5 CD set plus 2 DVD box set Mercury 5756093. Pat you have it listed as a radio edit, but the only radio edit I know of is 4:40 for this song. Is the 4:15 a legit short edit or is the 4:40 the definitive edit here and the 4:15 should be labeled "not 45 or radio edit"?

Here is all I can contribute to the subject of an edited version of Armageddon It. This song appears on disc 2 of the Def Leppard box set referenced above and does indeed run (4:12) and is called "radio edit" in the liner notes as well as on the cd jacket. It is truly an edit and not an early fade of this song but I do not own the (4:38) version of this song so I cannot verify if it is an early fade of the (4:38) version or not. If anyone has the (4:38) version could you pass along the name of the edit? As far as I am concerned if the record company wants to call the (4:12) version a radio edit then that is what I will enter in the database.

Pat, I can say for certain that the 4:38 version on the US promo 45 is only an early fade. I listened to the "Radio Edit" on Spotify a little bit ago, and you are correct that it's an edit (not an early fade). I suppose it's possible that yet another promo 45 exists with the wrong printed time. Could it also be one of the versions on the UK promo 45s?
