Look, if this is weird for you, being tutored? I don't mind helping you a little longer.
You could have sex with me if you really want to help...I guess that's a "no"?

To be honest I dont even think I was alive when they were a group? Well anyway I do like Def Leppard... there cool and some of there music is good to... I guess I thought people would be offended that I like Mariah Carey not even thinking about def leppard... and def leppard is so cool they actually defended Mariah when she did the cover... they said it was such a compliment to have someone put there song out there again after such a long time... most people didnt even give her a chance and they did!!! really sweet!!! :D

I'm not much older than you but I still feel really old now. Maybe I should go dust off my vinyls of Def Leppard and sob uncontrollably over my upcoming birthday. :cry:

I didnt mean to make you feel old... how do you think I feel when people ask me about duran duran and pink floyd? I mean I have heard there stuff before but I have to be like who are you talking about? I mean it the age arrow goes both ways... sometimes I feel stupid when 18 and 19 year olds ask me about groups that were around in the 80's and im like who... and there like are you serious... :oops:

This really should be considered blasphemy. :) "Bringin' On the Heartbreak" is most certainly one of the best Def Leppard songs out there.


Of the cover songs I can think of:

  • * Guns N' Roses - "It's Alright": Originally by Black Sabbath and, as far as I know, only done live with Axl Rose on piano. I get goosebumps when I hear it.

    * The Street Dogs - The Pilgrim:Chapter 33: Originally by Kris Kristofferson. Punk (hard rock, really) covering a country music song, and not even sounding country.

    * U2 - Everlasting Love (Originally by Robert Knight?)

    * Metallica - Astronomy (Originally by Blue Oyster Cult): Many, many Metallica covers, but this one stands out among the others on the new disc on Garage, Inc.

    * 1000 Homo DJs - Supernaut (Originally by Black Sabbath)

    * Lard - They're Coming to Take Me Away (Originally by Napoleon XIV)

Too many to list, and I don't know if the above are truly my favorite. Just a taste. :-)
