Bat Out Of Hell became one of the best-selling albums in history, selling over 50 million copies worldwide. 16 years later, Steinman scored again with Bat Out Of Hell II: Back Into Hell.
For the stage musical, Steinman incorporated songs from the Bat Out Of Hell albums, including "You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth", "Bat Out Of Hell", "I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)" and "Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad", as well as two previously unreleased songs, "What Part of My Body Hurts the Most" and "Not Allowed to Love".
In Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical, the rock songs of Steinman propel a story of rebellious youth and passion as Strat, the immortal leader of The Lost, has fallen in love with Raven, the beautiful daughter of the tyrannical ruler Falco.
