Joe Elliott and company set their alarms for an early walk-up call to perform their classic hit “Pour Some Sugar on Me” on Good Morning America. Def Leppard did their best to turn the GMA studio in Times Square into a mini-arena - complete with fist-pumping fans.

“Pour Some Sugar on Me” was a surprise hit from 1987’s Hysteria, which sold more than 25-million copies worldwide.

Def Leppard had been considered one of the most overlooked bands for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame until finally getting in this year. The band and its melodic hooks had been eligible for induction since 2005.

This year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will air on HBO on Saturday, April 27th.
