If you would like a physical copy of Blackout, the CD is available for only $5.99.
Blackout was the eighth studio album by German metal gods Scorpions, which is hard enough to fathom as we thought they were this “great new band” by the time their distinctly melodic hard rock sound reached our tender pre-teen American ears in 1982. Harder still to fathom: this album is 30 years old and still sounds amazeballs! Blackout is as familiar as your favorite well-washed rock tee shirt with tracks such as “No One Like You,” “When the Smoke is Going Down,” and the title track “Blackout.”
