    A total hero of my childhood. When I was about 10, growing up in the North East of Scotland, we used to have a lovely school bus driver who would kindly take music requests and he'd play out my Bat Out of Hell tape at full blast on the way to school. Haha I even had a giant black Meatloaf t-shirt that came down to my knees which was sometimes worn sneakily as a dubious part of my school uniform. I was going to be one of Meatloaf's backing singers when I grew up- I really, really was! Will always remember all the kids going wild to this, rocking out on the double decker bus and swinging joyfully from the banisters. (1980's H&S!) Knowing we'd have Meatloaf Mornings made the prospect of getting up for school, in the cold and dark much less miserable. Total Simpsons moment! 😆 RIP Dear Meatloaf. ❤🌠 (And thanks to Bill the Bus Driver wherever he may be!) XXX

    Like so many, I'm giving this amazing album a memorial listen in honour of Meatloaf. This is one of the best albums ever, full stop! Not a bad song on it. Teenage angst was never so eloquently captured as it was, at least for me, by this album and its incredible songs. It was a coming of age album for my generation. RIP Meatloaf. There will never be another like you.

    In 1978 I’d play this when I babysat for my brother. Called my girlfriend over and we’d makeout to the whole album. I was 14. After hearing the news, I cried because that was my youth. Brought me back to my teens, again. Playing Meatloaf all day today. Met him a few years ago. Great guy and he made me and my son laugh...RIP Meatloaf...😢

    Meatloaf has left the building, but his music rocks on. One of the all-time greats. He and his friend and kindred spirit Jim Steinman have passed on and they created a grand musical legacy together. May the Gods of Rock rejoice at what the did for music. Rest In Peace.

    I was 13 when this album came out, just around the time girls hit my radar. This brings back memories about how simple my teens were (77-82). No cell phones, no social media, no BS. All we did was hang out in the woods, we made some nice forts and smoked weed and drank beers. This album was on the boom box all summer. Paradise, 2/3, etc. was nothing like we heard before. SAD day. MEAT was a great down to earth guy. Its been bad lately, with Eddie Van Halen, Dusty, Neil Peart, Charlie all the stars are passing. Today, I put this "album" on, crackles and all.

    There will never be another album like Bat Out of Hell. The whole record is simply one of the greatest and most elaborate rock albums ever made, with Steinman's gorgeous lyrics combined with Meat's powerful voice and one hell of a backing band. This is an album about hot summer nights and cities of the damned, first love, last love and ascension into Heaven itself. An all killer, no filler 7 song masterpiece. One of my favourites ever.

      @Oleg Gorky So that's why he didn't have a major tour for it in the U.S. until 1979. I was wondering how this album came out in 1977 and yet I got to see the tour for it. I was 7, I loved this album the first time I heard it. When I heard on the radio that there was a tour, I bugged my mom mercilessly to get tickets for the show. Literally "Did you get the tickets, yet?" every 5 minutes, my poor mom... I don't regret it though, once in a lifetime show... R.I.P. Meatloaf.

    45 years ago I listened to this album, actually on 8 track in a car, and it was the most unique album I'd ever heard in rock and loved it then. Today I realize that my ears are even better for hearing the clever and even funny lyrics written by Jim Steinman and the incredible production value brought by Todd Rundgren. Meatloaf was really more important to me in my youth than I realized up until his departure a couple of days ago. Rest well good sir. Heaven no longer has to wait.

    My Father would play this on our road trips to see family out of state. My Father would respond to the beat and I would sing. I didn’t know what the lyrics meant but that doesn’t much matter. I had this album memorized by the early 80’s. Amazing memories with my Pop. If I could have just one more road trip with him, I’d give anything. He passed in 2019. This album keeps him and I connected.

    I used to run the Drive-in in my hometown back in high school (‘78 grad). It was out in the middle of nowhere. When prepping the weekend’s movies and cleaning the lot, I’d crank “Bat” on the sound system. Imaging Meat echoing off the surrounding countryside blasting from 150 car speakers!! It was glorious!!

      Yeah I called my mine when he passed to talk with her about playing this album every Saturday on repeat while she cleaned the house and we helped. I was born in 83 and I’d say that tradition started when I was in 3rd grade and felt like it lasted forever. She was born in 1960, so this was the album of her late high school and just out of high school days, so it’ll always hold a special place on her heart. She raised us on Meatloaf, Queen, Eric Clapton, and The Beatles. I gel like she raised us right music wise and try to raise my kids in the same.

    This album is a miracle that will be enjoyed for generations to come. Shortly after this came out I remember one of my friends inviting me over to his house and then putting the record on the turn table. "Listen to this," he said. I and another friend did, and were mostly speechless as the thing played in its entirety. I'm so glad I got to see Meatloaf perform these songs live back in the 80s. He possessed that stage like he owned it and gave 110% the entire show. Never saw any other singer with that kind of stage presence before or after. Rest in peace!

I want them back. I want to be a teen again. I seen Meat Loaf live and I'm so thankful I got to see my legend from the best years of my life. I'm heartbroken of his passing. RIP Meat.

    As so many of us were in terms of music, I grew up a product of what my older brothers and sisters, my dad and the older siblings of my friends were listening to at the time.
    I believe it was my sister Marianne McManus Jolly who brought this album into our house. I was all of eight years old, so when I heard something, it was usually the first time I had heard something like it.
    Go forward 44 years. I have still never heard anything like the album Bat Out of Hell by Meat Loaf. Maybe more than any album in rock history, Bat Out of Hell told a story from start to finish. That story was mainly about the confusing years for teenagers, years I was still a ways out from experiencing. And I'm not going to lie, I sang along to every song having no to little idea what any of the lyrics meant.
    It just sounded good. No, it sounded great. That album would blast at full volume when Mom and Dad were out of the house, the tape would play in the car. It didn't matter where I went, this was the music that was playing.
    Apparently, I wasn't the only one listening. Bat Out of Hell has sold almost 45 million copies since its release 44 years ago. And to this day, there hasn't been another album like it. It was Broadway on vinyl and it was undeniably rock n' roll.
    This morning, as we learn of the death of Marvin Lee Aday, aka Meat Loaf, that album is going to be played again. Not just at my desk, but at desks all over the world.
    RIP, Mr. Loaf. And do me a favor. When you dust off that album or go on-line to find it today, turn it up.
    WAAAAAAY UP!

    I loved him truly, played his album so many times I drove every crazy. 1978 in the military, got me a girl from playing it so much. Takes me back, way back!

    I'm also listening to this timeless classic album in memory of Meatloaf! Not only an amazing musician but also a pretty damn good actor! R.I.P sir!

    One of my earliest memories as a child is sitting in the backseat of my parent's car looking out at the night sky as they played this tape over and over. I don't know where we were going or why, and I don't remember who else was with us, but I will never forget the music and the way it made me feel. I am forty seven years old now and this is still my favorite album of all time.

      Im 40 now and I first heard Id Do Anything For Love when I was around in Elementary in the Philippines. It was a huge hit back then in my homeland. Im now in Canada and still like listening to MeatLoaf. Ive heard in the radio this morning that he passed away due to covid. Im here now to relive the best Trilogy in Rock N' Roll. RIP Meat Loaf

      It never mattered where we were going, as long as the music was on.

      I remember hearing it in the giant CD changer we had & I would secretly switch it to random & repeat so Meatloaf played for hours on-end while I played Final Fantasy or Legend of Zelda on NES...oh, and I'm 35.

    The finest album I ever heard. Every track is amazing and nobody could have sung these songs like Meatloaf. RIP.

    The music of my youth and throughout my life. Loved this album since it was released when I was 13. Loved all his work and always will. Lucky enough to see him live 5 times. What a voice and what a performer. You will always live on through your music, Big Man. RIP Meatloaf, always missed but always remembered and treasured.

    I'm crushed by his death! He was just four years older than me! Been bumping my Bat Out of Hell II CD and crying at the same time as I'm singing! Watched Rocky Horror at Halloween as usual, but got to introduce it to my friend who had never seen it, but loved the soundtrack! There will never be a storyteller like him again!!! An icon!!

    Rest in Piece legend! Your music will never be forgotten. Both Meatloaf and Jim Steinman, may you rest forever in piece. We will enjoy this master piece until the end.
