The Top Ten

Pour Some Sugar On Me
Best definitely leppard song ever
I just love it
A simple rock song about pouring sugar, that one of the band members thought of during a 5 minute coffee break. Epic!

The song really pours some sugar on me... I think it is the best song of the band and it is all about love... Just love it its awesome
The song really pours some sugar on me... I think it is the best song of the band and it is all about love... Just love it its awesome
The first Leppard song that I ever heard, it was an instant love for this band, I've since purchased almost every one of their albums. The old songs will to this day still be among my favorites.
[Newest]This was the first rock song I heard as a kid I was three

I honestly didn't know if I wanted this or Pour Some Sugar on Me as the number 1 song but I was listening to this one while I checked out the site and I had to vote on this. The chorus is just so awesome!
No song screams definitely Leppard like the original hit, Photograph! Perry hits every note in his perfect seething tone as he longs for his lost love of Monroe as the video shows us. I'm a big pop culture guy and when it was asked which definitely Leppard song was their most popular and most famous? Without hesitation, I said "Photograph". I then proceeded to get hot down by 8-10 people, who all agreed, Pour Some Sugar on Me! There's no way!
It's such a good song! The guitar solos and it's definitely a hard decision which one's the best. They're all really good but I think Photograph is by far the best. Such a good song :) Recommend it to all of you definitely Leppard/Hard Rock fans.
[Newest]This song got me into Leppard!

Hysteria has perfect harmony, lyrics that get stuck in your head, and an awesome chorus. deserves to be number one on the charts.
Come on guys this is the greatest power ballad of all time. I get Hysterical just thinking about this song. People think Pour some sugar on me is their signature song, but it's definitely Hysteria
AMAZING! Love the lyrics and the chorus. It should totally be the number one song!
[Newest]Should be number one

4Rock Of Ages
I think this is the best song because I think also that pour some sugar on me has something of "we will rock you" from queen in it
I had a really hard time choosing between this or Photograph, but this one just barely wins. Hardcore raw rock at its finest, Joe Elliot's screaming vocals, Phil and Steve's guitar work, the cowbell beat of Rick Allen, plus it's a guaranteed sing along at all of Def Leppard's concerts.


Hands down, the best song of Def Leppard. Catchy lyrics, excellent guitar work and a solid melody. Joe Elliot's best performance.


[Newest]This songs intro is just a lifetime testament to Classic rock everywhere

5Love Bites
One of the most emotional songs of definitely leppard


This song could be released today and reach easily top the charts, it's hands down their best ballad! Gotta love the 80's chicks in the video, nice hat, sunglasses, necklace, and cheesy spruced up set w/ the super 80's spiral stair case! If this was the only song the band ever produced I'd be fine w/ it!
All my favorite definitely leppard songs are on the top 10! This is the lowest so I voted for love bites. My favorite definitely leppard songs are:love bites, rock of ages, and pour some sugar on me. I love KISS most.
[Newest]This is the best rock ballad ever... The emotions.

Come on! You can't argue with the fantastic change in pitch every now and then, throughout the song plays!
Love this song this one should be number 4 not number 11 great singing guitar bass and drums amazing tune nice start of song
It was my First definitely Leppard song I heard and etched its self in my memory forever. A classic song that has never aged and needs to be played very loud complete with long hair flowing with the head banging and don't forget the air guitar!
[Newest]This was the 1 which got me into the Best 80's rock band: definitely LEPPARD

This is the best definitely leppard song in my opinion. Sure pour some sugar on me is the most popular of them all but this song is better even though all of their songs rock (; my list is

1 foolin
2 let's get rocked
3 photograph
4 pour some sugar on me
5 make love like a man
6 women
7 two steps behind
8 Armageddon it
9 hysteria
10 love bites
11 have you ever needed someone so bad
12 animal
13 rock of ages
Amazing song love it should be number 4, 5 or 6 vote this song should not be 10 this song is in rock band 3 Amazing love it one of the best songs please vote this one up it's one of the best so good amazing guitar
Foolin is my favourite def leppard lyric and it is a great song. The ebb and flow and change in pace is perfect as it builds to the crescendo during the chorus.
[Newest]This song should be number 1

8Bringin' On The Heartbreak
This song proved they would become something special


The real first big success of definitely Leppard.
This songs reminds me 80s a lot.
[Newest]A Very good song. Probably the best.

9Armageddon It
No comments on this one yet? Okay, I'll do it. The song is a fantastic play on words. But Steve's solo really does it for me. It's simple, but it has great build and delivery. R.I.P. steve.
This song is underrated in my opinion and deserves to be higher on this list. Definitely one of the most exiting songs and personally my favorite!
I do agree with #1 but this is a well deserving second place.
[Newest]Best song, nothing beats that guitar in the chorus. Great intro, great verse, great chorus, great solo, fun lyrics. few songs can claim that

10Too Late For Love
Way better than most of the other ones. Definitely one of my favorites and should at least be top five.
Awesome guitar riff! Awesome vocals! Awesome drumming! This song is just enormous!
If only they could sit down today and write more songs like this one. Good thing there is a repeat button.
[Newest]One of best rock ballets

The Contenders

11Let's Get Rocked
This is awesome for teenagers of this day. Let's Get Rocked. I have only listened to definitely Leppard music for about a month and I think this is an awesome song. I listen to it everyday. Adrenilize is the best album they have. I think. This song somewhat tells a story about kids. Do you wanna get rocked?
If you aspire to be a rocker, nothing lifts your mood as much as the lyrics of this song... Listen close... Must be in the top ten
wth? you guys missed the best def lepp song..
[Newest]One time on that family guy episode, stewie said let's get the rock out of here road to the multiverse

12Gods Of War
A meaningful tune that also sounds awesome.
Also the definitely Leppard song that drew me to the rest of the bands awesome songs.
Also my personal favourite!
I love the riff. Steve Clark will really be missed.
Love the speech at the end

Why do people only vote for what's popular instead of substance. I was going to vote for Die Hard the Hunter, but although Promises may seem a little "poppy" so to speak it's actually a pretty powerful song and deserves the #1 spot.
WHAT? HOW IS THIS 31? This epic song belongs in the top 10 EASY.
This is my other favorite song (the other one is photograph). Both songs are awesome and I'm disappointed in the people who made this 31.

14Desert Song
Awesome song. very underrated, easily one of the best definitely leppard songs ever.

15White Lightning
I really like this song even though it is very long.7 min songs are good because you get to listen to it for longer
This song is amazing. I can't even imagine what it was like for them to lose Steve. Great song

16Let It Go
Probably definitely Leppard's best song song. The opening riff is legendary and the song just slams you from beginning to end. Great song from definitely Leppard's best album.
One of the best riffs on history of rock! This song is certainly the best of Def Leppard. LET IT GO... awesome! Def Leppard ROCKZ
This really deserves to be higher. Great guitar and GREAT singing. This should make the top 5 easily!
[Newest]Under under rated song needs votes for sure classic Leppard

I blazing hell is this doing all the down at number 54. This should be in at the top 15
Such a powerful and kickass song. It should be in the top 10. Skin on skin, let the love begin.
Definitely Leppard's #1 song

18Die Hard the Hunter
Extremely underrated song. BEst in my opinion
Best definitely Leppard song. And does not get the credit it deserves
And I thought Rock of Ages was kick ass. This one makes me feel like I am in an actual gunfight

I love this song I can't get it out of my head at download it looked great really want to see them live
I just saw them live and this was the most exciting of all. Next was rock of ages and then bring on the heartbreak
How is this not in the top 10? Such a great song and catchy!

20Billy's Got a Gun
I'm sure I'm the only one who like this song. But in my opinion it deserves in the top ten.
Intense and seamy, perfect blend

21Paper Sun
This song is just out of this world. Listen to it, if you haven't yet!

Totally the best of definitely Leppard!

22Mirror, Mirror
ARE YOU KIDDING ME! HAS NO ONE EVER HEARD THIS SONG BEFORE!?!? IT IS AN AWESOME HARD ROCKING SONG! Mirror Mirror should be in the top ten at least. This is one of my favorite songs. The guitar is amazing.
Mirror, Mirror is the best song on the best album. The band got bigger and bigger, but the energy level from the High and Dry album has not even been approach.
Hard to believe this one doesn't come in at the top of people's favorites. The opening with the syncronized guitars, the measured progression into the first chorus just rocks. The way the axe appears later in during the vocals rips into your ears.
[Newest]Always been a favorite but I still can't see why this isn't popular at all. So catchy.

23Make Love Like A Man
What? Why isn't this at the top? The top needs this song. They are missing the best song ever. When you need some one to.. Make love like a man. Helps express your feeling guys. At least listen to the album Adrenilize.
This is the most fun definitely Leppard song along with Armageddon it. If your a bloke you should love this song because it makes you feel like a big man. Make love like a man I'm a man that's what I am.

24High & Dry (Saturday Night)
This is a fine song and the album as a whole is seriously good and very underrated. It is not as strong in the guitar work as others on High and Dry but very good nonetheless.
This song is sick and it such a disappointment that it doesn't get the respect that it deserves. If only it would have been on Pyromania.
This is ones of greates vh1's metal songs of all times classic song ever men
Don't understand why not should be on the top 10? '
Definitely leppard rocks!

25Heaven Is
Great guitar, backups, chorus, songwriting. Everything is great!

26Stand Up (Kick Love Into Motion)
This song should be a lot higher than this. It's the best song on one of their best albums and should be in the top ten at least


27Long Long Way To Go
this is an absolutely amazing song. very well written. the only reason its not in the top 10 is the lack of radio play!
Definitely one of definitely Leppard's best. Amazing song that's not given nearly enough credit.
This is an amazing song. Top 10 material in my opinion.
[Newest]These is my favorite song

28Miss You In A Heartbeat
Love the song just amazing the first song I heard and it forced me to download other songs of this great band
A great love ballad. These guys need to come back and make some more, dammit!

29Blood Runs Cold
One of their most melodic songs, fantastic harmony, one of Leppard's most under-appreciated classics.
My all time favorite song from definitely Leppard ~ and I love all of their songs!

30Fractured Love

This song is absoulutely awesome. If I'm in a bad mood, it would put me out immedaietly and it is so catchy and wonderful!

32When Love And Hate Collide
This song is my favorite in all the time and actually this is my first song downloaded in my ipod because it's to cool and I love how the song went until the end, This song is great, awesome and lovely
best rock ballad of def leppard.


Powerful, lose someone, remember them, hurt so much, definitely leppard power ballad, Joe slams it home on this. Listen to it, and see.

2 THUMBS up, thank you definitely leppard for recording this.
[Newest]Wow.. This song should be in the top10... So beautiful.

33Rock Brigade
Full of energy, amazing riff!


35Rock Rock ('Til You Drop)
It should be number one or number two at least.
A very underrated definitely Leppard song!

36Love and Affection
One of my top 10 favorite songs! Such emotion and desperation in the music as well as the vocals.

37All I Want Is Everything
Best ending to a song. Ever. The rest is pretty good too but that outro seals the deal.
First song I heard... Of definitely leppard... And I became a fan after that

Action right down here? This can't be it this song is amazing.34, wrong 4 is the real place. the sweet shared this song with definitely leppard
I think this song is AWESOME!

39Lady Strange
This list s/be top ten Leppard songs after every song on High and Dry! Every song on High and Dry (accept High and Dry) kicks the crap out every other song Leppard has done.
The is this best song from definitely Leppard's greatest album. It should get a lot more respect.
Another great song from the best rock album in the world ever: High'n'dry!

40Hello America
Unbelievable that this song was not mentioned before
So important for the band, and a Great song

This song was from their first album. An underrated great album, that only true definitely leppard fans know. Back when they weren't this glamy lame girly band that only cares about girls. No! They were real rockers. This album deserves more respect as well as the album. I'm sorry but in my opinion it's a shame to see where definitely leppard went after the first two albums. I respect their albums it just sorta sucks to see that they turned to some fake rock band. I'm sorry but it's sorta true. Do any of you know how pour some sugar on me even got popular? In a strip club... I respect it an all it's just sorta a big shame
This song is from "On Through the Night, " their first and best album. Back in the days when definitely Leppard were a little known rock/metal band. No glossy production or pop chorus here. Just an awesome, straightfoward hard rock tune.

Great song. Can really relate to it in a lot of aspects in your own life. Just recently found out about it and now it would have to be one of my favourite tracks by them.

43switch 625
This song should be respect because steve death

44Comin' Under Fire
That chorus is Leppard's proof that they are certainly NOT deaf.

45To Be Alive
One of the best ballads and best songs of definitely leppard's underrated album Euphoria, which is an awesome CD. The song is haunting and reminds me of their classic ballad "Love Bites".

46Rock On
It's a great song at least it shold be in top 20!

Truly unreal how low this is and how it was not a hit along with gods of war. Not my favorite but top 5. Just voted to help it up
This song is so catchy and I fell in love with it the first time I heard it. It's now my favorite deflep song and I can't believe it's not on this list yet
Possibly the least known song off hysteria but it should be one of the most

48Sorrow Is a Woman
Awesome song the best from On Through The Night

49Run Riot
To say this song rocks your brains out would be the understament of the century. well, truly it goes way beyond that

50Another Hit and Run
Best song off Leppard's best album. The guitar solo is sick.

51C'mon C'mon

52Day After Day
This song got me through the peace corps. Should be top 15 easy.

53Tear It Down
A great song. Although I don't really have a favourite definitely Leppard song, but I just felt that Tear It Down also should be on the list, as it truly rocks!
Wow nobody likes this song? So underrated. Great guitar work and lyrics. Love it!

54Don't Shoot Shotgun

One of Leppard's best! If you like the heavier songs that is! The musicality is on a completely different level compared to their mainstream albums like hysteria and pyromania.
Beset Lep Song Ever! Wish they would re release it!

Great definitely Leppard song that very few people know about. It is GREAT!

83Two Steps Behind
I got this song from one of my friend who had some real good sense for music. This song always used to play once in a while from my playlist and I never bothered about the band. Then lately I picked up guitar and started looking for some real good acoustic songs, that's how I know definitely Leppard. Amazing song. Never listened to any other song but a song of this level deserves a vote up.
I'm glad, to listen this song.
this songs, help me to show how much I love my lady and give me the way to express...
thnks to Def leppard..
What? This song is too damn good for this position! This should be rated much, much higher!
