Def Leppard premiere video for We All Need Christmas

Def Leppard are premiering a video for the original holiday song, “We All Need Christmas”, from their newly-released greatest-hits collection, "The Story So Far - The Best Of Def Leppard."

The clip mixes scenes with the band alongside fan-submitted footage, after the group recently reached out for assistance with the project.

“We All Need Christmas… and we all want YOU to celebrate with us,” said the band on social media in October. “Post a video set to the entire song lip-syncing the lyrics” to the seasonal tune.

"The Story So Far" traces the UK band’s singles and fan favorites from the third album, 1983’s “Pyromania”, to today, and includes a remix of the group’s cover of David Essex’s 1973 hit “Rock On”, and recent take on Depeche Mode’s 1989 single, “Personal Jesus.”

Def Leppard will be inducted into the 2019 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame at the 34th annual ceremony in New York next spring.

Despite being eligible since 2005, the group gained entry on their first nomination while winning the Fan Ballot with more than half a million votes.

The group will be inducted as part of the Rock Hall Class Of 2019 alongside Stevie Nicks, The Cure, Janet Jackson, Radiohead, Roxy Music and The Zombies.
