VIDEO OF THE DAY: DEF LEPPARD, “LET’S GET ROCKED”
As a followup to last week’s controversy-starting Album of the Day post about Adrenalize, I figured I’d post the debut video from that album, “Let’s Get Rocked.” The computer generated animation was an obvious tip of the hat to the Dire Straits, but the Leppard imposed their trademark party vibe on the updated-for-the-’90s theme. Whether or not you think Adrenalize was a good Def Leppard album, or even if you don’t think at least this song is catchy as hell (come on!), this video is bad ass and definitely worthy of the “Viewer’s Choice” MTV Video Music Award it won in 1992. Also, you can’t go wrong with the superfluous use of old school Mac icons to make the band seem “with it.” Now let’s get the rock out of here.
