Interesting. But I won't make up my mind until I hear what Salisbury Steak has to say.

The only thing I've seen Meatloaf involved in that didn't totally suck was Fight Club and he was the worst thing in that film.

This is the most important election in the history of the United States," Meat Loaf explained. "Because there has storm clouds come over the United States. There is thunderstorms over Europe. There are hail storms--and I mean major hail storms--in the Middle East. There are storms brewing through China, through Asia, through everywhere... I want you to know there is one man who will stand tall in this country and fight the storm and bring the United States back to what it should be. Gov. Mitt Romney!"

What happened to you Meatloaf?

So he's always been one of those conservative Republicans. At least his endorsement doesn't backfire the way Lindsay Lohan's probably is, or when they had Shannen Doherty appear at the GOP convention (after she had tantrumed her way off of 90210).
 
2012-10-26 07:20:13 AM  
Meat Loaf has explained, with a white board and by diagramming the sentence structure of each verse, what exactly "that" is. I'm looking for the video or image but failing.

And...so Mitt has the "Fat old white guy" vote. I was pretty sure this is not news.

I always love it when entertainers endorse a candidate. The people who are rabidly supporting the other side claim they hate his music and always have, despite the fact they might even own an album or two. Then the people who are voting for the candidate the celebrity supports mysteriously become lifelong fans and start talking about their concert experiences.

I'm sure the retards on Democratic Underground and Free Republic are playing out this scenario right now.

I like some of Meatloaf's music. I also like Megadeth and Ted Nugent, but I'm voting for Obama. I don't give a shiat who actors, musicians, authors, etc. endorse, one doesn't affect the other.

Krymson Tyde: I like some of Meatloaf's music. I also like Megadeth and Ted Nugent, but I'm voting for Obama.


I can't get past Nugent's persona. Musically, he's fine in a cheesy 70s way, but like so many other 70s acts, he's so much about the image. It's like KISS- their music isn't anything particularly special, just serviceable party-rock. But they have staying power because of their ridiculous image. Except their image is kinda funny and entertaining. Nugent's image is a little discomfiting and honestly, learning that his image and his real personality are roughly the same thing is really depressing.

I like some Meatloaf songs, I like many Megadeth songs.

Ted Nugent, on the other hand, has nothing of interest to me. I love all kinds of classic rock, but I've never found any of his music compelling. I know he's got some respect among musicians, but I don't think he'd be anywhere near as popular without his political views as of late.

I was more bothered by the comment Romney made shortly after, paraphrasing "There are good Democrats that love this country, Republicans that love this country, Americans that love this country..."

It had a very, "most Democrats don't love this country" sound to it. And this was him talking about being bipartisan...

You'd pass some bills and you felt all right,

Got into the driver's seat and thought they were divine.

I used to go with some friends who'd vote
And listen to those speeches on the radio
An evangelist was ranting about liberals and hos
You'd rake in the cash and you really had a good time

Hot Patootie, back to work!
I really love that Romney smirk!

Nice. +5 Internets to you.

I like Meat Loaf, I think the over the top dramatics are fun and the music with Steinman is great. Hell, I think 'Paradise by the Dashboard Light' is one of the most lyrically clever songs out there. I just don't understand this endorsement...

He can endorse Mitt, that's fine, as long as he comes up with a rational reason. This 'most important election of all time' crap is stupid and misinformed. Not only that, it's an insult to people who were actually there for elections where everything really mattered. Sure, if Romney gets elected, he'll fark up everything Obama fixed, but this isn't a 'most important EVER' election, not by a long shot. Meat just seems to be reading straight from the cue cards here.

And what's up with the 'occasional actor' crap? He's in movies more often than a lot who automatically get listed as an 'actor' by default in stories like this.

That makes me sad that Meat Loaf would support a candidate that is anti-equal rights for women and LGBT folks.

I like some of his music, never really thought of him as an actor. I like some of Toby Keith's music too. I love most of Clint Eastwood's movies. That said, I really couldn't care less who any of them vote for, nor did the big Lohan endorsement change my mind. Everyone knows that Bob Saget is the only celebrity endorsement worth having.

I like the guy's work, but he's a hardheaded Texan who always seems overly, unnaturally sure of himself. This is exactly how I'd figure he'd vote. Least he isn't a pants-shiatting draft-dodging chickenhawk like Nugent. He's got that going for him, which is nice.

I only accidentally learned a few years ago that "Total Eclipse of the Heart" was a Steinman tune. After knowing that and giving it a listen, I felt stupid for having not guessed it the first time I heard it. That song absolutely reeks of Jim Steinman. Though I could do without the whole "turn around bright eyes" bit, the rest of the song is very powerful.

This Face Left Blank: I like the guy's work, but he's a hardheaded Texan who always seems overly, unnaturally sure of himself


Interesting take on Texans ( I didn't know he was one) and I agree. I live in New Orleans, so naturally I meet a large number of Texan drive-in tourists. It's as though being from a state with disturbingly large teen birth rates, a wingnut governor, and possibly the most insane collection of school boards in the entire country somehow grants them elite patriarchal status.

"What? Boy I'm from Texas! You sure you wanna mess with me?

"Boy, I'm from New Orleans and I've seen your kind come and go. Now go."

/used to be a bartender in the Quarter
//lots of fights, and I don't mean that as an ITG thing. It's just the way it was, and almost all the bloviating Texas folk had little or nothing backing up their bravado
///It's the skinny, quiet liberals that actually scare me. Those guys will gut you like a pig once you set them off

topcon: I always love it when entertainers endorse a candidate. The people who are rabidly supporting the other side claim they hate his music and always have, despite the fact they might even own an album or two. Then the people who are voting for the candidate the celebrity supports mysteriously become lifelong fans and start talking about their concert experiences.

I'm sure the retards on Democratic Underground and Free Republic are playing out this scenario right now.


Meat Loaf is derptastic now. I never owned any of his albums, but I liked some of his music when I was young; still do.

Keith Urban, to take another example, would annoy the crap out of me even if he were complaining that Obama is a center-right politician and he wants an old-fashioned liberal. And I would adore Leon Redbone if he were demanding that George Wallace be reanimated and made president.

Nice to know that Romney has such a glowing endorsement from such a washed-up dipshiat who wasn't even that talented to begin with.

FishStampede And...so Mitt has the "Fat old white guy" vote.

Meat Loaf isn't fat, his get-up in "Fight Club" was actually a 400K Rob Bottin fatsuit

firefly212 I like some of his music, never really thought of him as an actor.

he broke in as an actor in New York originally, for Joseph Papp

dickfreckle: simplicimus: Bonnie Tyler/Jim Steinman collaborations were pretty good.

I only accidentally learned a few years ago that "Total Eclipse of the Heart" was a Steinman tune. After knowing that and giving it a listen, I felt stupid for having not guessed it the first time I heard it. That song absolutely reeks of Jim Steinman. Though I could do without the whole "turn around bright eyes" bit, the rest of the song is very powerful.

/that same day I also learned that Bonnie Tyler's raspy voice was to due to some sort of health problem/surgery


He also wrote "Holding out for a Hero", "Ravishing", "Rebel without a Clue" and one of my favorites, "Loving you's a dirty job" that Bonnie Tyler performed.

A Screaming Man with Two-Toned Shoes: shivashakti: Forget about Meat Loaf, what does Billy Squier think about the elections???

Billy Squier, are you kidding me?! Billy Squier. He's as
[recordsleeves.com image 379x372] as any of us, that Billy Squier.

/Billy Squier


To state the obvious, "Steinman is credited for producing all of the tracks on Billy Squier's 1984 album Signs of Life

That's because they're all right wing trolls desperately trying to discredit Democrats


I've been there once... gave me headache.

dickfreckle: simplicimus: I guess he's not working with Jim Steinman (again).

Steinman is Meat Loaf. You could put another singer with Steinman and still get very similar results, but Meat Loaf is nothing without Steinman.

Dude has a good voice, but he won't be writing a song like "Heaven Can Wait" anytime soon.

/Bat Out of Hell is still the only Meat Loaf album, in my opinion
//rest of it is dreck


He had a good voice. Have you heard him lately?
