Scorpions - Rock You Like A Hurricane

Sunday, time for a classic tune.

"Rock You Like a Hurricane" is a song by the German hard rock band Scorpions. The song was released as the second track of their 1984 album Love at First Sting.

The racetrack depicted on the single's sleeve corresponds to the Circuito Permanente de Jerez, located in Spain.

The lyrics of "Rock You Like a Hurricane" also reference the title of the album on which it originally appeared – Love at First Sting. 

A new version was recorded in 2000 as "Hurricane 2000" on the album Moment of Glory, featuring Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra backing the track. In the same way, it was titled "Hurricane 2001" when played on the follow-up Acoustica. A third re-recording by the band features on their album Comeblack, released in 2011.

In terms of ’80s metal classics, however, the tune is the Platonic ideal: a headbanging-worthy repeating riff, gigantic drums, a ripping solo and an indelible refrain—sing it now—‘Here I am / Rock you like a hurricane.’

Although the official video is full of ’80s clichés (women dressed as animals, actual zoo animals, absurd sci-fi flourishes), the campy edge of the music never overshadows the ferocious nature of the song. Heck, ‘Rock You Like A Hurricane’ even sounds badass when interpreted by an orchestra: Just try to stop yourself from fist-pumping while watching this video of the band performing with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.
