Meat Loaf, a singer who released one of the best-selling albums of all time, has died at the age of 74. The video clip of the Clarkson’s Farm star calling him a “fat oaf” has resurfaced just as Jeremy sent out a tweet saying he “liked” the star.
Bat Out Of Hell singer Meat Loaf has died, his family has announced today.
Plenty of stars have already paid tribute to the talented musician, including Cher, Stephen Fry and Piers Morgan.
One celebrity to pay his respects was former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson.
Jeremy, 61, sent out a tweet in view of his 7.6 million followers which simply read: “I liked Meat Loaf.”
However, some of Jeremy’s followers didn’t seem too impressed by the Tweet.
Twitter user Alexander Pan attached a YouTube video, which was entitled “Top Gear Really Hates Meat Loaf” and replied: “We know”.
The comment received 35 likes, with others chiming in to say that they had remembered that moment on television.
In the clip Jeremy is presenting on Top Gear and begins by saying: “Now as you know we are on a quest to find the greatest driving song, and for the last few weeks people have been emailing us with their nominations.
His co-presenter Richard Hammond went on to explain the voting rules for how their audience’s “best driving song” would be determined.
Gesturing to their current song chart, Jeremy continued: “It is very, very important that you do get voting because this is the chart so far: ACDC, Motorhead, Golden Earring, Queen, Steppenwolf…”
At this point Richard cheekily interjected that their viewers were setting a trend of “black T-shirts and long hair”.
Getting more worked up, Jeremy said: “It’s unbelievable! And there are a few great driving songs in there… But look what’s at number one! Please! Meat Loaf! Bat Out Of Hell?

“If you want us to stand in front of the world and say that the best ever driving song is a fat man or the ‘wolf with the red roses’…” he cried out incredulously, referencing the lyrics to Meat Loaf’s song You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night).
“What are we going to do?!” Richard lamented.
Later on, when Bat Out Of Hell made it to number five in their chart, Jeremy told the audience: “Now, we know how many people voted for the fat oaf. More importantly, we know where you live.”
However, Jeremy was put in his place by Richard soon after, when he was asked if he liked Meat Loaf.
Moments after Jeremy confirmed that he did not, Richard pulled out the Sun’s give-away CD entitled Clarkson Rocks, which was a compilation of all of Jeremy’s favourite tracks.
Sure enough, at the number two spot was Meat Loaf’s track Bat Out Of Hell.
The rest of the video featured various different times the Top Gear presenters poked fun at the late star, although his song did end up placing at number two on their shortlist.
