* TheMusical: ''Bat out of Hell'' was expanded and made into a stage musical, essentially a retooling of the original '70s era ''Neverland'' concept altered to remove the explicit Peter Pan references, although this basically involved changing the names and not much else) that spent quite a while in DevelopmentHell[[note]]This is excluding the 40+ years the basic framework languished following the end of the 1977 workshop[[/note]] before finally premiering in Manchester in early 2017, transferring to the West End a few months later, and making its North American debut in Toronto. No Broadway transfer has been announced as of yet.



* VillainSong: From ''Bat Out of Hell III'', "In the Land of the Pig, the Butcher is King," which was [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally]] written as a VillainSong sung by the corrupt officials of Gotham City in an abandoned [[Theatre/BatmanTheMusical Batman musical]].

* XtremeKoolLetterz: "Godz" from ''Braver Than We Are''; this quirk seems to have been invented for the album the original ''Neverland'' version (from all the way back in the mid '70s) is spelled normally as seen [[http://www.jimsteinman.com/neverland/kennedyp3.htm here]].

** His voice has also, sadly, been declining steadily since 2005 or so. He still sounds pretty good on ''Bat 3'' and the subsequent studio albums, but it's clear that his range has decreased. On the Melbourne and ''3 Bats'' live albums, he struggles with some of the melodies and is frequently flat. As of the 2011 tour, he can barely sing ''at all'' any more. He still puts everything into the show.

In ''WesternAnimation/SausageParty'', he's depicted as literal meatloaf.[[note]]He technically isn't ''in'' the movie. The character is used to sing a few bars of "I Would Do Anything For Love" and appear in a couple of visual gags.[[/note]]
