    Bands that have hit rock bottom

    My first nominee for bands that have hit rock bottom is Def Leppard. They have released 4 greatest hits albums, and now, they just released an album titled "Yeah!" where they cover songs from the late 60s and 70s. There were a couple guys talking about it on the radio and I didn't believe them until I looked it up on amazon.
    Yo momma. That's right, I said "yo momma".

    Funny, when I read the title, Def Leppard was the first to come to mind. They're still a great band, but damn!

    I was looking forward to three new releases on Tuesday: Def Lep, Dixie Chicks, and Johnny Cash. (Despite how I know that sounds, I still hate 99% of country music.) Two of these turned out to be excellent, but Def Leppard's was, well, not really bad, but enormously disappointing. I love the band, I love cover versions. . . but this is all carbon copies of the originals. I hate carbon copies! If you're gonna do someone else's song, give it a new twist. Otherwise, you're wasting your time and my money.

    Who the hell would buy a new Def Leppard album in 2006 and not have the originals of "20th Century Boy" and "Rock On"?

    I'll always have Hysteria. And Slang. And Euphoria. And X. And Pyromania. And, to a lesser extent, Adrenalize and Rock of Ages.

    Rock bottom is not being able to get out of the club at a Great White show, but yeah they did hit rock bottom after that. (Rock Bottom is a song by Def Leppard also) Def Lepard is just trying to milk it for all it's worth, like alot of "Classic Rock" bands. I did like the way the 2 guitarists in DL worked together, though they lost alot of their cool chord changes and riffs when Steve Clark died after Hysteria. The twin guitars on "Bringing on the Heartbreak" is a good example of the technique invented by Wishbone Ash in a rock format, later influencing bands like Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden, Boston, etc. who later influenced Metallica and others.

    Washed up band? If a member is on 'the Surreal Life' then he/she/they are washed up.
