Afternoon Snack” Def Leppard, “Armageddon It”

Def Leppard is a band I paid no attention to during their heyday, and truth is, I have listened to some of their stuff of late, and it all kind of sounds the same.

But, this song–which is clearly in their sound wheelhouse–is just a great little pop/rock tune with great drums and fun (if simple) guitar pyrotechnics.

You can love it or hate it, but it is a perfect little pop tune.

  1. Really liked their “Yeah!” cover album from a few years ago. Great songs, surprisingly well-done too. How the hell did they birth all those stinky originals from these great influences? Track listing:

    1. “20th Century Boy” T. Rex
    2. “Rock On” David Essex
    3. “Hanging on the Telephone” The Nerves
    4. “Waterloo Sunset” The Kinks
    5. “Hell Raiser” Sweet
    6. “10538 Overture” Electric Light Orchestra
    7. “Street Life” Roxy Music
    8. “Drive-In Saturday” David Bowie
    9. “Little Bit of Love” Free
    10. “The Golden Age of Rock ‘n’ Roll” Mott the Hoople
    11. “No Matter What” Badfinger
    12. “He’s Gonna Step on You Again” John Kongos
