It’s long been argued that the poodle-rock audience moved to pop-country in the late ’90s, and the new Def Leppard video, “Nine Lives,” is a logical extension of that. No, Def Leppard hasn’t replaced their guitars with banjos, they’ve just invited Tim McGraw to drawl on another half-hearted attempt at a Hysteria-esque arena stomp. That lick on the chorus is a little country, too. Man, now even the British hair bands are pledging allegiance to the shitkickers. [YouTube via Blabbermouth]
