None.

Objectionable Content

The number-1 radio single "I'll Do Anything for Love" promotes casual sex ("I'll never forgive myself if we don't go all the way tonight") and Mr. Loaf "pray[s] to the god of sex and drums and rock 'n roll." Elsewhere, sex is a synonym for salvation, and the "answer to every prayer" is a one-night stand. On "Wasted Youth," the singer screams about smashing his guitar "against the body of a varsity cheerleader" and refuses to ponder the meaning of life ("Forget the questions! Someone gimme another beer!"). This rebellious, self-destructive imagery not only flies in the face of biblical principles but also thumbs its nose at common sense.

Summary Advisory

In 1978, Bat Out of Hell raced up the charts. With Back Into Hell, it's the same old rancid Meat Loaf heated up and dished out 15 years later. Leftovers like this we can do without.
