Def Leppard & Rockin' Videos

Watch rocking 80s videos as Joe Elliott and Phil Collen from Brit rock legends Def Leppard join Sara Cox to pour some sugar on everything from guys with giant hair to girls who rock!

Turn it up to 11 with a purr-fect mix of soft rock and heavy metal, including videos from Aerosmith with Run DMC, Meatloaf & Cher, Iron Maiden and Joan Jett.

The boys from Def Leppard chat with Sara about their homegrown roots, breaking America before the UK, and hitting the big-time worldwide. They reflect on the band's difficult times, including the inspiring story of their drummer Rick losing his arm in the mid 80s only to fight back to perform again. And they look ahead to their upcoming tour and life still on the road in 2018.

We play their hit videos Photograph and Pour Some Sugar On Me, whilst Joe and Phil from the band choose their favourite 80s track.
