Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott‘s picks Demi Lovato‘s Holy Fvck as his favorite rock album of the year.

Speaking with Classic Rock magazine, the “Pour Some Sugar on Me” singer says that Holy Fvck “rocks harder than anything else I’ve heard this year,” adding that the record’s “riffs are fantastic” and Lovato’s vocals are “off the f***ing charts!”

Holy Fvck, which was released in August, finds Lovato exploring more of a rock, guitar-driven direction compared to the pop star’s previous releases. It includes features by Yungblud, Royal & the Serpent and Dead Sara; longtime Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss joined Lovato’s live band last summer.

Def Leppard released their own album this year, May’s Diamond Star Halos. Elliott and company also co-headlined the massive Stadium Tour with Mötley Crüe, and they’ll continue to share the road together on a world outing in 2023.
