Cover of Love At First Sting

From Love At First Sting and 111 other releases

“Rock You Like a Hurricane” reached number 25 in the USA Billboard Hot 100, greatly contributing to the album’s success, and MTV put the video in heavy rotation.

It was ranked fourth in the greatest guitar riffs of all time by Sync magazine. In 2006, VH1 named “Rock You Like a Hurricane” number 31 on their 40 Greatest Metal Songs and in 2009 it was named the 18th greatest hard rock song of all time also by VH1.

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

A new version was recorded in 2000 as “Hurricane 2000” in the album Moment of Glory, featuring Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra backing the track. In the same way, it was titled “Hurricane 2001” when played in the follow-up Acoustica.

The lyrics of “Rock You Like a Hurricane” also references the title of the album on which it’s found - Love at First Sting.

The track is also featured on Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock.

    The sound of ‘80s hard rock wouldn’t be the same without this top 40 hit. Thanks to a catchy riff and anthemic chorus, the tune turned these Germans into the “Ambassadors of Rock.” Whether it’s at sporting events, in movies, TV shows or video games, the song’s pervasiveness in pop culture demonstrates the Scorpions really do know how to “rock us like a hurricane.” -- watchmojo
