I have a six year old little brother, who knows an entire song that was written when his parents were teenagers! I am sure you’ve heard it. It is on multiple movies and I have heard it at almost everyone one of the dances I have ever been to. “Pour Some Sugar On Me” is one of the most famous songs of all time, also its nearing its twentieth year of being out! That is twenty years, for a song that’s more than a lifetime. Most songs today are forgotten by the end of the year they were made.

Its important that we have these types of bands, ones that don't m,try to be the cool guys and give us good influences. (Spitznagel)
Some may say that they aren't worthy for this award because they refuse to condon to what others think they should do. This is what makes them so great though. They act how they think they should. That is what makes me think they should be inducted into the Hall Of Fame.
For the reasons of their charity, background, and professionalism, and so many other reasons; Def Leppard should be inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
