Def Leppard’s New Versions of ‘Pour Some Sugar on Me’ and ‘Rock of Ages’ — Double Premiere
How effin’ classic is Def Leppard? So classic that a new film starring Tom Cruise is bearing the name of one of their ’80s anthems. Hitting the big screen on June 15, Rock of Ages is a classic love story told with backdrop of the ’80s Sunset Strip hair metal scene and the music that fueled it.
To help celebrate the highly anticipated blockbuster that shares its name with one of their biggest hit single, Def Leppard have recorded new versions of “Rock of Ages” and “Pour Some Sugar On Me,” which will also be available on all digital music carriers at midnight tonight (June 4). This marks the first time in Def Leppard’s legendary history that studio versions of their tracks will be available digitally.
Noisecreep knows people, so in this exclusive we’re pumped to bring you the premiere of the new versions of BOTH “Rock of Ages” and “Pour Some Sugar on Me” to get your day started!
