Not arguing that Def Leppard was popular, but their "body of work" was basically two albums-- Pyromania and Hysteria.

When someone goes to see Def Leppard, today, they want to hear stuff from those two albums....and maybe "Bringing on the Heartache". Who the hell wants to hear "Let's Get Rocked" or "Me and my Wine"? The immense popularity of those two albums may actually work against them.

What may also hurt them is that I don't recall them being much of a influence or being praised for their technical prowess. "Yeah, I was inspired by Phil Collen and was blown away by his solo on Pour Some Sugar On me"...said nobody ever.
