Marvin Lee Aday is a singer and occasional actor who, for reasons never definitively answered, has recorded under the name Meat Loaf. 1977's Bat Out of Hell made Meat Loaf a star. Produced by Todd Rundgren, the teen rock opera spawned three Top 40 singles: "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad," "Paradise by the Dashboard Light," and "You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth".
His next record was 1983's Midnight at the Lost and Found. After 1984's Bad Attitude and 1986's Blind Before I Stop bombed, the singer declared bankruptcy and began physical and psychological rehabilitation to restore his road-ravaged voice. After several years in relative obscurity, Meat Loaf returned in 1993 for Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell. The follow-up proved almost as successful as the first Bat Out of Hell, selling over five million copies and yielding a massive hit single with "I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)."
He followed up in 1995 with Welcome to the Neighborhood and 2003's Couldn't Have Said It Better. Three years later, after resolving the disputes surrounding its release, Bat Out of Hell III: The Monster Is Loose came out, tracks from which were added to the production of Loaf's Bat Out of Hell play. Meat Loaf's 11th studio album, Hang Cool Teddy Bear, appeared in 2010.

The Monster Is Loose Lyrics
I've been livin' my life in a cage, freedom spits in my face
I had my head in a noose, I had nothing to loose
I'm angry, I'm ragin', I'm breakin' through the pain
I've walked a slippery road, felt a twitch in my soul
I've paid for all my mistakes, takin' all I can take
I'm bleedin', still breathin', I'm tearin' through these chains
I've lived a thousand years in darkness
I was falling apart at the seams
I was wakin' up stuck in a dream
The monster is loose, you've lost your last excuse
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
