After several years shopping the concept around before getting ToddRundgren's attention, ''Bat Out of Hell'' hit the shelves in 1977. While not immediately a hit, the album grew with popularity over time. It spent 485 weeks on the charts in Britain (second only to Fleetwood Mac's ''Rumours'' at 522 weeks), is presently the #5 best-selling album ever released with more than 43 million copies sold worldwide(after ''[[Music/MichaelJackson Thriller]]'', ''[[Music/{{ACDC}} Back In Black]]'', ''[[Music/PinkFloyd The Dark Side of the Moon]]'', and ''[[Film/TheBodyguard Soundtrack from The Bodyguard]]''), and still sells about 200,000 copies per year. A "sequel" album, ''Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell'', was released in 1993 with new songs by Steinman, including his only U.S. #1 single, "I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)". A third in the series, ''Bat Out of Hell III: The Monster is Loose'', was released in 2006 featuring songs written by him and by Bon Jovi lyricist Desmond Child. This was the first ''Bat'' album not produced and written solely by Steinman, although several older songs written or recorded by Steinman beforehand are featured. In addition to the ''Bat Out of Hell'' trilogy, Meat Loaf has released several other albums, with varying levels of involvement on Steinman's part.

* PrecisionFStrike: If you haven't heard ''California Isn't Big Enough'' yet, you may not expect the start of a slow, calm DoubleEntendre song to suddenly lose the 'double' part, when the volume kicks up and he belts out "I CAN BARELY FIT MY DICK IN MY PANTS!" BoastfulRap indeed...
