RIP Meat Loaf: "I Would Do Anything For Love" was my favorite song like, in the world, ever, for a good year of my life. I had the whole, 12 minute version memorized back in the day.
Never forget you, Meat.
And Paradise by the Dashboard Light ain't so bad, either.

And yeah. this IS an april fools hoax. Meat Loaf is still alive and rocking.
