    Thanks for all the awesome giveaways! I'd love a chance to rock out to the Chili Peppers early or anytime for that matter! Cool you posted when you are giving out the codes too. I saw alot of people get confused over when the Def Leppard codes were being handed out and went and bought the songs cause they didn't think they won (including my brother) only to get codes later and end up giving them away on the forums.
