Listen to Big Jay Oakerson and The Sklar Brothers talk Def Leppard live from Moontower Comedy Festival in Austin here.

Episode Summary:

Some artists speak for a generation. Some albums perfectly encapsulate a moment in time that, while perfect in that context, may seem out of place in any other time. English heavy metal icons Def Leppard’s contributions to the pantheon of rock are undeniable. But along the road to glorious immortality, there can often be a few questionable deviations. Without those somewhat dubious digressions, though, there would no opportunities for master comedians like Big Jay Oakerson and Randy & Jason Sklar to hilariously unpack the mullet-sporting, ripped jeans-wearing cheese of the 1987 album Hysteria, as they did for the first ever live episode at the 2019 Moontower Comedy Festival in Austin, Texas.
