I don't have a gambling problem, I'm winning, and winning is not a problem. That's like saying Michael Jordan has a basketball problem, or Def Leppard has an awesomeness problem.
~Earl Hickey

Def Leppard has been bringing on the awesome since 1977, when they formed in Sheffield, England. They never broke up, and are now in their fifth decade of highly adrenalized rock for the ages.

In 2017, the Leppers released the DVD And There Will Be A Next Time... Live From Detroit, a hit-packed production from their tour the previous summer.

So feel it, don't fight it, go with the flow, and take this Def Leppard trivia quiz. Let us know how you did in the comments.

Got 10 out of 10, just read about the keyboard player of Pyromania otherwise it would have been nine out of 10...Jeroen from Netherlands
8 for 10; not bad.Schmoopdoug from Cincinnati
I forgot about Love bites as their number hit ever in the states. I forgot the title as I played it and I could kick myself for that error. I did not know Mariah did a cover song from Def Leopard, have to hear it. Don't remember In The Garden. I forgot about the Owl, wow. I forgot Hysteria outsold AC/DC and I remembered everything else. Loved that Pyromania practice driving with that song all day and night. Help when I am doing long distance driving too.Stormforce from United States

I got 4 right..s--t! I'm surprised..just like Angela I did know more..I was saying the right' answer and pressing the wrong one.. Dumbass!!Kay from Scotland
Damn, I sucked!! I only got 2 correct despite being my FAVORITE band since Pyromania in 1983, which believe it or not, was played at my (gulp...) 8th grade graduation.
BUT in my defense, I actually knew more but second guessing myself, changed my answer last minute.
Angela from California
6/10, quite all right. I thought it would have been 9/10 or even 10/10... Def Leppard sound is maybe the best rock sound from the 80's.Japi from Finland
