Known for his powerful, wide-ranging operatic voice and theatrical live shows, Meat Loaf was accompanied by the 1994-1995 Penn State ROTC Color Guard during his performance.

In the video that was shared by MLB on YouTube, the camera films the faces of the opposing team's players, and their emotion is evident on their faces.

One user commented, "This is how you do the National Anthem. Look at all the people standing up for the National Anthem as well."

"The best rendition of the National Anthem I ever heard. I was there with my [13-year-old] son. We actually heard him practicing it the day before while doing a stadium sound check," added another user.

"He did this while on his big come back during the Bat out of hell II album and tour, he reminded people what a huge (no pun intended) talent he is, and if you [have] seen him live his recorded vocals don't show what the man can do live, he is a consummate performer! " commented another fan.

HE HANDLED IT LIKE A PRO

Back in 2011, the Grammy award winner fainted on stage during a concert performance in Pittsburgh.

However, after getting on-stage treatment from medics, he got back up and completed the show. Before the concert finished, he told the crowd:

"I [expletive] fainted. I have asthma... I can't breathe... And then... oh wait, I forgot... I got poked by a pin and bled half to death... and then I got slapped in the face and my tooth is loose."

The name is an homage to his nickname from his football playing days when the coach called him "Meat Loaf" due to his weight.

The vocalist, who is one of the most successful singers of all time with over 80 million albums sold, once revealed that he is a shy man in his personal life, and his boisterous stage personality does not extend into real life.

Aside from his music, Meat Loaf is also acclaimed for his work in movies. He has starred in more than 50 motion pictures and TV programs, but his most remarkable performance was as Eddie in the cult film, "The Rocky Horror Picture Show."
