It's always a niggle, isn't it, how to capitalize that title. Bat Out of Hell? Bat out of Hell? Bat Out Of Hell? Anyway, best follow the cover art and just say BAT OUT OF HELL is 38 years old today. It's one of the most seminal albums of my life, and a big reason this blog exists. So happy Bats Day to Jim Steinman, Meat Loaf, and the gang that brought this amazing record to life.
