Meatloaf Band

Texan Michael Lee Aday, aka Meat Loaf, was more a 70’s star than an 80’s star, but he did still manage to produce a number of international hit songs in the 1980’s.  His most popular album, Bat Out of Hell (1977), had sold more than 43 million copies by 2016 (this album featured the hit song “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad”).  Meat Loaf is considered by many to be one of the greatest rockers of all time.   Meat Loaf is known for his theatrical live show performances, as well as stint as an actor (some of you may even remember him as Eddie in the Rocky Horror Picture Show).

After leaving Texas and moving to Los Angeles, Aday formed the band Meat Loaf Soul while at the same time working in theatre.  During his early recording career, Aday teamed up with Stoney Murphy to release a couple of Motown records under the Stoney & Meatloaf moniker, which was a successful endeavor.  In 1976, Aday was also tapped to sing vocals for Ted Nugent on his Free-for-All album.

Although Meat Loaf continued producing new material in the 1980’s, he did not have any significant chart success in the USA.  However, some of his 80’s songs that did well in Europe included “Dead Ringer for Love” with Cher, “Midnight at the Lost and Found”, “Modern Girl”,  and “Paradise by the Dashboard Light”.   It was Meat Loaf’s 1993 album, Bat Out of Hell II: Back Into Hell, that featured his only number one hit across the board.  The song “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)” was a number one hit in 10 countries. 

Meat Loaf continued cranking out the hits in the United Kingdom well into the 2010’s and  was still very active well into the late 2015’s (both in studio and on screen).  At the time of this writing, the Meat Loaf Discography was as follows:
