After some recent debate (and a lot of YouTube viewing), I’ve concluded that Def Leppard is likely the most remarkable hair band of all.

Yes, there were countless guitar-wielding guys with AquaNetted manes and eyeliner back in the day, but Def Leppard offered more than men in makeup. Unlike the one-note, shrill delivery of, say, a Cinderella, they had vocal range (not to mention percussion courtesy of a MAN WITH ONE ARM…eventually).

But more importantly, DL had a sense of humor. Maybe you can chalk it up to their Britishness, but dudes never seemed to take themselves too seriously. As proof, I offer you “Rock of Ages,” where we follow our animal-print-clad heroes into a mystical land of demonic chess games and wood nymphs. I can assure you that no one who was overly concerned about being cool would have agreed to the Excalibur sequence at 2:03.
