The Lyrics

What happens when a pair of epic 1970s story-song singers go toe-to-toe? One reference that might not be familiar: Meat's daughter, Pearl Aday, is married to Scott Ian, the lead singer of Anthrax. Also: "West Side Story" reference in Meat's 2nd round.
Epic Rap Battles of History!

Harry Chapin!


Meat Loaf!


Well, I raised money for hunger relief.
Now, what do I see?
A guy who thinks McDonald's
is a better place to be!
I don't know about "Rocky"
but you are a horror show.
I'm talkin' about Fight Club
you big meaty oaf!
You're a bat out of hell?
No, you're just a fat joker
like a white version of the
1990s Al Roker!
Nobody at school wishes
they were you tonight
and I'm turnin' out your
dashboard light!

Me? Lose to a guy
who's also kinda fat?
I'd do anything for love
but I won't do that!
I'm a Notorious B.I.G.
from Dallas, Texas
and like Steve Miller, I'm gonna
explain just what the facts is!
I'm a dead ringer for love
with a bad attitude
and if you step to me
Harry, you are well screwed!
Your flowers are red
but you'll be black and blue.
I've heard disc jockeys do
better singing than you!
(WOLD... )

You're a joke. You drove the bus
in that flick with the Spice Girls.
And there's Anthrax all over
your daughter Pearl.
You're nothing without Jim Steinman
and you know that it's true.
Without him, your rock and roll dreams
never came through.
You lost your voice in '81
and you lost your damn mind.
That cocaine habit
really kicked your behind!
Not only is your opera-rock
totally wack
but your rapping is a lemon
and you should want your money back!

Yeah, I lost my voice briefly
but in '81 you died!
I don't know how you drove a taxi.
Were you only stoned, or fried?
Sandy wrote your biggest song
and deserved the big bucks.
Even your band says,
"Harry, it sucks!"
You say all your life's a circle
but you're really a square.
Your cats in the cradle
need an analyst's care!
I'm mashing your bananas
you producer of schlock!
Mr. Tanner cleaned clothes
but I just cleaned your clock!

Who won?
Who's next?
You decide!


(Big John Wallace)
...of Bananas!

Rap Battles of History!

As a big Meat Loaf fan I was happy to see this one! I wish you could record these and have people dress up in these costumes. This is fantastic! Keep 'em coming!

Reminds me of the time I heard someone try to sing "Paradise By The Dashboard Light" on karaoke night. I'm more familiar with Harry Chapin. Your reference to "30,000 Pounds of Bananas" brings back memories, too. Wonder if it was inspired by C. W. McCall's "Wolf Creek Pass". Keep up the series.
