Meat Loaf — “It Just Won’t Quit”
(from Bat Out of Hell II [Back Into Hell]) — It

Brilliantly bombastic and ostentatiously over the top, Meat Loaf roared back to relevance in the fall of 1993 in one of the most expertly engineered comebacks rock and roll has ever witnessed, and he did it with the help of his old buddy Jim Steinman, the man who polysyllabic lyrics had propelled him to superstardom a decade and a half prior. Call this what you will, but don’t you dare call it dull. (Incidentally, Meat Loaf appeared on Brandon’s Buzz Radio three months ago to discuss his latest album, and if you missed that conversation, you can catch up with it here.)
