Don't talk shit about da Lep, bro. They rock.

I seriously believe 2 or maybe 3 songs are still listenable at this point...Photograph is probably not even one of them.

High and Dry and On Through the Night were the pinnacle of Lep.  Pretty much downhill from there.

Probably true, at this point in my life I have a low tolerance of meaningless lyrics.

Just do what I do...Completely ignore them and focus on the music :haz:

Def Leppard are an amazing live band.

Great musicians, fun music and they have a deep appreciation for all things rock and roll.

They always give their fans their money's worth live.

Once again someone needs to be reminded that what one person hates is another mans taste.

Def Leppard are easygoing, fun escapism.

I saw them summer of 2012. They were fantastic. Perfect sound, and their performance was full of energy. Got to hear a lot of good deep cuts that night, like Gods Of War, Saturday Night (High N' Dry), etc. Amazing show. Only downside was that I had to sit through Lita Ford and Poison before the Lep came out roaring.

Funny how we all think it is everyone else that needs the reminding, isn't it?

Fact is, we ALL do it.

...they blew Kiss off the stage, even with all of the Kiss theatrics.

I've often said the same thing about the orignal Battlestar Galactica.

So true, but I still can't forgive you for not falling in love with Queen's music. ;)

Kiss was the reason I DIDN'T go see Def Leppard last summer. Kiss are absolute trash now. Paul can't sing and hasn't been able to sing since Ace left the band.

Hell, they should have actually called it after the Farewell Tour, like they were supposed to.

Kiss was so bad, I was almost embarrassed for them.

Would you agree that Def Leppard was better?

Maybe I caught them on an off night.

I saw them with Crüe on the previous tour and they were much better.
