Def Leppard’s new music video is premiering in Guitar Hero Live

Video games killed the radio star

Def Leppard is debuting its new music video in a video game. The band announced today that the video for "Dangerous," the latest single from its 2015 self-titled album, will be available first to watch (and play) in Guitar Hero Live in both the US and Europe. The video will be part of a new premium content pack being added to the game, which also includes the videos for "Let's Go" and "Rock of Ages." The latest Guitar Hero launched last year, and has swapped the series' traditional 3D graphics for actual music videos that display in the background while you virtually rock out to a song.

Guitar Hero Live has previously debuted exclusive playable live footage from bands like Avenged Sevenfold, but this will mark the first debut of a traditional music video in the game. "The way our fans discover and listen to our music has evolved so much throughout the years," Def Leppard lead singer Joe Elliott says. "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 video for "Dangerous" is available in all versions of the game starting today.
