The previously published list of songs that was alleged to be the track listing for DEF LEPPARD's upcoming CD of classic British rock covers has been exposed as a hoax.
The track listing, which originally appeared on the MelodicRock.com web site on March 12, has been designed to spell out "This Is Bullshit" using the first letter of each songtitle.
Speaking to RockDetector.com editor Garry Sharpe-Young, DEF LEPPARD singer Joe Elliott called the "leaked" track listing "definitely not right". He continued, "This supposed album we're making (or not making...) has been talked about in various chat rooms for weeks." Then the LEPPARD frontman added "You gotta have fun, eh?"
