Def Leppard uses 'Guitar Hero Live' to debut new music video

Video for the song 'Dangerous' arrives this week, but only inside the game.

Def Leppard is still crankin' it to 11 in 2016, on the heels of a new self-titled album released in October. To debut its latest music video, though, the band is taking a rather interesting approach. The video for the track "Dangerous" will first appear in the game Guitar Hero Live as a playable track. If you missed the revival of Guitar Hero last year, the latest installment pairs gameplay with "live" visuals of artists playing gigs. It includes everyone from Carrie Underwood to Avenged Sevenfold.

"The way our fans discover and listen to our music has evolved so much throughout the years," said Def Leppard singer Joe Elliot. "Whether they're playing on vinyl, streaming the songs online or playing along to our music video in Guitar Hero Live, it's amazing to see how interactive music has become."

The new video will debut inside the game this week under the Def Leppard: On Through The Ages Premium Show section. That show also includes classic and newer versions of videos for the songs "Let's Go" and "Rock of Ages," so you can relive the glory days of '80s rock. Of course, you'll have to level up and complete challenges to gain access, or you could just hand over some cash if you don't want to work for the goods.
