Def Leppard to be Featured in Guitar Hero 4

def leppard

Well it’s about damn time if I do say so myself. I figured that Def Leppard, who pretty much dominated the 80′s rock and pop charts, would have appeared on Guitar Hero: Rocks the 80′s or at least showed up as downloadable content for Legends of Rock, but apparently Activision was saving the union-jack attired band for another game.

News comes down to us today, thanks to an interview with Rockline, that Joe Elliot and the boys will be one of the featured artists on Guitar Hero 4 when it is released later this year. I listened to this interview yesterday whilst doing a few things around the house and apparently I missed that little tidbit. Not that I am saying it isn’t true, I just did not hear that part, and if I had I would have jumped back on here to tell you about it.

The songs expected to be included are as follows:

  • Photograph
  • Rock of Ages
  • Animal

“Animal” happens to be one of my least favorite of their hits because I think the lyrics are very silly, but I am not complaining because I am just happy to have any Def Leppard instead of no Def Leppard. It even makes me want to whip out my beat up Union-Jack muscle shirt, red parachute pants and high top Reeboks and wear them around the house. Yes, I wore that back in 7th grade for a while – wanna fight about it? It is not my fault really, I went to a catholic school up until middle-school and did not know that real people did not wear what your favorite bands did in real life – esp said outfit and being female. I was so used to blue plaid that I was completely out of touch with the world of fashion.

Anyway, enough of my rambling about silly fashion faux pas as a child.

When more information on this fun news develops we will be sure to let you know!

I really hope that there will be def leppard on GF4, tho i wish there would be more than 3 songs on there, but its better than nothing…But I think what they should do is dedicate a whole game to Def Leppard like they did with Aerosmith, besides def leppard is a whole lot better than aerosmith anyway, also they need some acdc on guitar hero to. Its pretty bad when the best 2 bands from the 80s arent even on Rocks the 80s.
