Musical Interlude: Rocket (1987)

Def Leppard paid tribute to the musical heroes of their youth in 1987's "Rocket", off their CD, "Hysteria". Listen close, and you'll hear singer Joe Elliott name-check songs by the Beatles, Elton John, and David Bowie, among others (regarding Bowie, Elliott references Ziggy Stardust and the 1969 song, "Space Oddity"), and there are stills or video clips of Bowie, T-Rex, the Beatles, Freddie Mercury (Queen), and Gary Glitter, plus news bytes of British Prime Minister Edmund Heath and former President Richard Nixon.
