Def Leppard – “Foolin’” – (1983)

Do you like hair bands? It was a (short-lived) phase I went through a couple years ago. For the most part they’ve never been too appealing to me but I will admit that Def Leppard is one of the biggest bands to come out of the 80s. This is a hard rock song known for its stuttering chorus “F-f-f-foolin'” and the well-sung line “Is anybody out there?” This song hit #28 on the Hot 100, making it the third-biggest hit from Pyromania.

#5 – Def Leppard – “Pour Some Sugar on Me” – (1987)

This is the Def Leppard song. When the 90s came, their music got, well, uhh… not better. It only hit #2 on the Hot 100 but it is their best known song and widely considered one of the greatest songs of the 80s. It remains a big hit today featuring in movies and being one of very few pre-internet age songs to have reached Gold Certification for having more than half a million [legal] downloads.
