After a short holiday break, I’m back to breaking down your Vote for the GOAT Top 5 lists and responding with my own. Today, it’s Def Leppard.

 

So far, I’ve made lists for Pearl Jam, Ozzy Osbourne, Foo FightersMötley Crüe, Van Halen, Aerosmith, Green Day, and Guns N’ Roses. You can scroll through all those here. Scroll through your Def Leppard Top 5 below, then I’ll get into mine.

 

Vote for the GOAT – Def Leppard

5) Animal

4) Bringin’ On the Heartbreak

3) Photograph

2) Rock of Ages

1) Pour Some Sugar On Me

 

That’s a damn fine list. Mine is, too.

5) Rocket – “Guitar! Drums!” Almost 35  years on, and my friends and I still call this one out. And it was the SEVENTH single from Hysteria!

4) Foolin’ – “F-F-F-F-Foolin’!” I guess I love the Def Leppard songs that are easiest to sing along with.

3) Rock Of Ages – Sure, “Pour Some Sugar On Me” is Def Leppard’s biggest hit. But I’d argue that “Rock Of Ages” is their signature song.
