Meat Loaf's debut album Bat out of Hell, which had been four years in the making, sold over 34 million copies when it was released. The album almost became more profitable than Michael Jackson's blockbuster album Thriller, which sold 104 million copies. After almost 30 years after Bat out of Hell's release, it still sells an estimated 200,000 copies annually, and stayed on the charts for over 9 years. Each of the seven tracks on the album eventually charted as a single hit.
Although he enjoyed success with Bat out of Hell and Bat out of Hell II: Back into Hell, Meat Loaf experienced some initial difficulty establishing a steady career within his native United States. Despite this, he has retained iconic status and popularity in Europe, especially the UK, where he ranks 23rd for number of weeks overall spent on the charts, and is one of only two artists with an album never to have left the music charts. In Germany, Meat Loaf became notably popular following the release of Bat out of Hell II but has enjoyed most of his success among pop/rock fans. He ranked 96th on VH1's '100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock'.
Meat Loaf has also appeared in over 50 movies or television shows sometimes even as himself, or as characters resembling his onstage personality. Some of his memorable roles include his cameo in 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' and his character Robert "Bob" Paulson in 'Fight Club'. Meat Loaf appears as Jack Black's father in the 2006 Tenacious D film 'Tenacious D in: The Pick of Destiny'.
