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?

Confirming that the short version is a UK Radio Edit. I recreated it myself a while before the 'Hysteria' super deluxe editions came out:

Was there more than one promo 45 in the US for this song? The only promo listing on Discogs in the US shows a promo with the 5:21 version on both sides.

Armageddon It

Yes, there is another US promo with the early-faded 4:38 version on it. I'll try to remember to dig it up and list the details on Discogs.

Did you ever dig it up? Would like to know the details. Thanks in advance.

Just did. The printed time is 5:21, but the actual run time is 4:38. It's an early fade of the LP version and not the edit that appears on the 30th Anniversary set.

What's the 45 promo label number I meant...

It says in the notes on Discogs, as Aaron said in his post, that the listed time is 5:21 but the actual run time is 4:38.
