sooo....this thread is for opinions about def leppard. personally, i am a HUGE fan and i just wanted to chat about them with other fans!!! well please post!!!
#2
i personnally think that with one strike they soiled the genre of New Wave of British Heavy Metal, forever ruining its reputation and throwing it into the gay abyss of MTV. Not a fan.
I bet you five bucks that I play guitar.

They're are one of the few "hair metal" bands that I don't despise.

Eh...they're not really "hair metal". The right term would be more along the lines of "Pop-Metal" =/

Can Joe still sing? I watched them on the VH1 rock honors last year and he was terrible.

His voice has suffered a little over the years, but he still does a nice job.

def leppard rocks im going to see them for the second time in september they play wicked live
#15
I used to be so obsessed with them when I was 12. Not I really think that Joe is a terrible singer.
#18
I like some of their stuff from their first couple of albums On Through the Night through Pyromania. I don't really like anything they have done past Pyromania though. I don't really like Hysteria, but that is the album that got them really big. I just don't really like the pop sound on it.

Saw 'em just this week. They played with Foreigner and Styx. Missed Foreigner in favor of Famous Dave's however (looking back in regret at that.) Styx abso-freaking-lutely ruled the night, but Def Lep was still good. Joe can still do most of his stuff, but his high shrieks have kinda faded over the years. Their set was just too mellow at all the wrong moments. It was like energy-Energy-NRG-hysteria-slow song-slow song-slow song-slow song-slow song- Pour some sugar.

More or less.


Well, more.

Ummm, petrol? Nip down to your local petrol station, buy a litre of the stuff and soak your balls in it, light them up and start playing with them.
#22
i saw them last night in noblesville IN...they played with styx & REO speedwagon both sucked...but Def Leppard Kicked ass!!! they are so awesome ...the guitarist vivian campbell handed me his pick !!!!we had front row seats right near the stage...i think they still sound good & hopefully I ll be able to see them again!!

I'm a huge fan of Def Leppard. I love their music. I really miss Steve and his playing though. He came up with amazing riffs and guitar bits. I love all of their older stuff but I'm not really familiar with their new stuff except for a few songs from different albums. I don't think they or anyone else should be put into a type of Rock music that they are. This is the biggest debate with leppard fans. I think they're really unique in their own way, but if I had to choose a genre I'd say Hard Rock with elements of Pop and Heavy Metal.
#24

Ahh I love 'em.

Funnily enough I clicked on this and wondered if there's be a thread on them.

But anyway, I think they're still great.
