Rock singer Meat Loaf filed a more than $50 million lawsuit over trademark rights to the phrase "Bat Out of Hell" addressed to two members of his creative team, songwriter Jim Steinman and manager David Sonenberg. In his suit, filed May 26 in Los Angeles federal district court, Meat claimed that Steinman, who penned the epic song, wrongfully registered the phrase as his trademark in 1995.

Also Meat alleged in the suit that though he didn't actually come up with the signature phrase, he has used it extensively for 29 career-spanning years, starting with the 1977 album "Bat Out of Hell," and thus claimed its legal association should be with him, not Steinman. The suit further claims that the songwriter registered the phrase as trademark "out of nowhere."
