The Scorpions are the largest selling German band in rock history - Klaus Miene, Rudolf Schenker, Matthias Jabs, Francis Bucholz, and Herman Rarebell are legends of the metal genre. Although the Scorpions had already achieved fame after 1982's Blackout, Love At First Sting was the first Scorpions album to please the overall radio world and brought them their biggest single of the decade. It is from this album that most of the group's hits originate, and the tracklist reads like a greatest hits collection. Love At First Sting is the ninth studio album by the band. Love At First Sting is a triple platinum album.
"Rock You Like A Hurricane" is one of the Scorpions' biggest hits and remains their signature song. The tune reached number 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, number 14 in Germany, number 2 in the French and Swiss Top 50. The ballad "Still Love You" reached number 64 on the same US chart and is one of the best of the metal era and showcases pretty passionate soloing from lead guitarist Matthias Jabs. Tracks like "Big City Nights", "Bad Boys Running wild", and "I'm Leaving You" are all very strong, featuring excellent melodies penned by rhythm guitarist Rudolf Schenker. The acoustic turned heavy rocker "Coming Home" is one of the strongest tracks and was the opening song for many of their live shows.
This album is notable in that it was one of the first digitally recorded heavy metal albums ever released. The original cover photo was created by famed photographer Helmut Newton.
