Def Leppard are offensive and should be cancelled

First up, their name "Def Leppard" is both ableist (anti-hearing impaired) and anthropomorphic dyslexic labelling. Disgusting. We will cover the title of the album in the track commentary. Needless to say, it is very offensive.

I don't know if anyone has studied the tracklist of Def Leppard's biggest selling album but clearly it is PROBLEMATIC in this day and age. Let me show you:

(Trigger Warning: you may need a safe space before reading this)

Track One "Women": can it be any clearer how Def Leppard objectify women and don't care anything about potential misgendering. The song only talks about women (sexist) and men and makes no mention of trans or intersex people.

Track Two "Rocket": obviously shows a complete lack of concern for the environment, basically celebrating burning fossil fuels. Enviro-vandalism.

Track Three "Animal": on the surface this song is harmless until one realises it demonises our furry (and furrie) friends painting them as unable to control their urges. Very unnecessary and disappointing.

Track Four "Love Bites": sadly this is not a harmless love song but a perpetuation of cis-normative sexual love without any consideration given to LBGTQI feelings.

Track Five "Pour Some Sugar On Me": a typical promotion of junk food when we should be encouraging people to eat healthy, vegan food alternatives. The pro-sugar rant is very harmful and could also attract ants.

Track Six "Armageddon It": this track seems to be celebrating end of the world scenarios, almost like it is pleasurable. Clearly this shows no concern for the very real pandemic we are currently experiencing. We are all in this together. #vaccinated

Track Seven "Gods Of War": seriously! Promoting Imperialism. I'm sorry to all minority groups like Africans, Asians and everyone else not privileged to be white.

Track Eight "Don't Shoot Shotgun": well, this makes me sick. Why not just say, "use an automatic rifle as that is better than a shotgun in school shootings". Bad.

Track Nine "Run Riot": obviously this is something we don't want - remember Capitol Hill? But, if it is BLM or Antifa, those riots are ok. Don't refer to them as riots though, they are "peaceful protests".

Track Ten "Hysteria": well, why not name your whole album after a term used to describe WOMEN FIGHTING TO BE HEARD on their periods! HOW DARE YOU! (deep breaths, deep breaths)

Track Eleven "Excitable": basically a rape culture anthem. Typical toxic masculinity portraying women as objects for male sexual gratification. Cancel this track.

Track Twelve "Love and Affection": well Mr Leppard, not all of us want the love and affection you advertise! Some of us choose to be alone, living in basements, with cats for company. And I'd like it if you didn't shame me for that choice.

On it... Def Leppard has been removed from the main site.

Thanks, Dan. I feel much more at peace knowing I'm not a member of a site that supports such behaviour.

    • No, you need to show me where the pulse is. 
    • Yeah, it's a great album (Vanity Kills, 2010). Any new material on the horizon?   
    • Lyric video for 'Return To Glory'.    
    • New album out November 22 through Lions Pride Music. From Lions Pride Music: Martin Perticone AKA “Perticone Underdog” is an artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina who’s been in the music industry since the age of 13, when he joined the band Fondo Blues as a lead singer and guitar player. Martin played in the Argentinean under circuits for more than 25 years but during the way also got to know many important people in the music industry that led him to become Tour Manager for artists like Eric Martin from Mr Big in 2007 or even being invited as a guest for Richie Kotzen Latin American Tour in 2008. Martin has also toured around Latin America, USA, Europe and Hong Kong as a hired gun for many different artists until he finally decided to put more efforts on his solo career. That’s how his long-time friend Edu Giardina (well-known artist in Latin America) would become his producer and mentor for his debut album “Underdog”. The mixture of AOR, Southern Rock and Country makes this album unique and different with amazing and powerful melodies all over the place. The album featured guests such as Eric Martin (Mr Big) and Edu Giardina and brings reminiscent from the late 80’s and 90’s but keeping the best of current sounds and trends too. Perticone’s solo career has just begun and in only 1 year from his launch he’s got many followers and fans in Europe, Asia and Latin America. “Stuff In The Basement” was recorded during pandemic times at RED Studios Buenos Aires and features an amazing line-up of musicians from all over the world. Edu Giardina and Guillermo Porro got involved, one more time, as the producers and band members for this new release taking the album to another level. It is plain to see the growth of Perticone Underdog as an artist on this new production by just listening to the opening track of the album “Blame it on Me”. There are, as usual, some country “pearls” and 90’s rock reminiscences all over. Stuff in the Basement will be released in 29 August 2022 by Lions Pride Music worldwide!   CD Tracklist: 01. Blame It On Me 02. End Of The Line 03. Name Without A Face 04. Save Me Tonight 05. Game For Fools 06. Waiting 07. Let's Get Lost Tonight 08. What Went Wrong (I Wonder) 09. When It Rains 10. Falling   Perticone Underdog is: Martin Perticone: Lead & Backing Vocals, Acoustic & Rhythm Guitar Edu Giardina: Backing Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Keys, Drums, Progamming Ezequias Aquino: Saxophone Guillermo Porro: Guitar Solo on „Name Without A Face“ Will Wilde: Harmonica on „Game Of Fools“ Emmanuel Lopez: Lead Guitar on „Let's Get Lost Tonight“ Lara Goi: Backing Vocals on „What Went Wrong“ Brad Harper: Pedal Steel Guitar on „When It Rains“   facebook
