Scorpions

German metal is great, the Scorpions and Rammstein are sure to be the most successful bands the country has ever produced.  Scorpions managed what most metal bands strived for but only a handful succeed in doing i.e. becoming massive in the USA.  For UK or European bands the US is a vast untapped market that can take years of slog and hard work to break into.  The rise of hair metal and MTV in the 80’s gave the Scorpions the opportunity they needed and they grabbed it with both hands.

Love at First Sting is a classic rock album, the Scorpions were rewarded for being good guys and allowing Klaus Meine their vocalist time to recover from his throat problems.  I reckon a good few other bands would have said sorry Klaus but we have a gap here and we have to take it.  The Scorpions were prepared to throw it all away and they stuck with their bandmate.  Klaus got better and the Scorpions went on to conquer the world.
