Def Leppard in originality shocker. Limbly challenged, derivative Sheffield hair rockers Def Leppard are set to debut their forthcoming single as a downloadable track for Guitar Hero III.

The forthcoming cock-rock stomper - 'Nine Lives' - will be available with older, similar sounding Def Leppard tunes on April 24 on Xbox Live, and on May 8 on the PlayStation 3 store.

"I know from personal experience how much more you get into the music by playing the game, which is why we were keen to explore this opportunity," said Joe Elliott, lead singer of Def Leppard.

"Guitar Hero is extremely popular with all kinds of music heads, which includes a lot of our fans, and we think releasing 'Nine Lives' this way first is just fantastic!"
