Def Leppard announces tour and Tampa stop, causes a "Duel to the Def" face-off

I just got a release announcing Def Leppard's latest 40-city American tour with Poison and Cheap Trick, which includes a Tampa stop at Ford Amphitheatre Fri., Aug. 14. After receiving news about one of hair metal's greatest Aqua Netted fivesome, I was inspired to look up and play the classic "Pour Some Sugar on Me." I mean, has a song ever expressed a food fetish with such heart? In response to my song selection, PoHo challenged me with another, "Photograph," which kicked off a short but sweet "Duel to the Def." My response was "Love Bites," because who doesn't love a good Leppard power ballad? His challenge, in four words, "Gunter glieben glauchen globen" the intro to "Rock of Ages." Before I could whip out some "Hysteria" on his ass, I was called into a meeting, which left PoHo the default victor.

What would be your "Duel to the Def" picks?
