Last night, Meat Loaf performed at a Romney rally to a crowd of 10,000 people in Ohio and offered his endorsement for the presidential candidate. BuzzFeed writes:

"I think that in 2012, this is the most important election in the history of the United States," said Meat Loaf, singer of the hit power ballad, I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That). "Because there has storm clouds come over the United States. There is thunder storms over Europe. There are hail storms, and I mean major hail storms, in the Middle East. There are storms brewing through China, through Asia, through everywhere."

He went on, "And there's only one man that on the other night when Pres. Barack Obama, God bless him, said to Mitt Romney, 'The Cold War is over.' I have never heard such a thing in my life. The man needs to understand Putin and Russia."

Meat Loaf then sang "America the Beautiful" with Romney and country singers Randy Owen, John Rich and Big Kenny:
