Embroiled in a battle over the rights to the phrase Bat Out of Hell: Jim Steinman, who wrote the song, and Meat Loaf, who sang it.

Meat Loaf wants sole rights to the name, so he can release a third album under the banner; he also demands over £25 million in damages.

Asked if he'll give the words up to Mr. Loaf, Mr. Steinman is believed to have said "I would do anything for love, but I won't do that."
