VIDEO: Scorpions release classic Rock You Like A Hurricane performance

The Scorpions have issued a classic performance of their hit “Rock You Like A Hurricane” as featured on the expanded deluxe edition of their 1984 release “Love At First Sting.”

“Another one of our 80’s German TV Show performances on Peters Popshow, making it Peters Rockshow,” says the band.

The lead single from their 1984 album peaked at No. 25 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and, with the video in high rotation on MTV back in the day, helped “Love At First Sting” became the group's most successful album in the States.

Released in March, the project went double-platinum for sales of more than 2 million copies by the end of the year, and went on to sell another million in the next decade.

The German TV footage is featured on the expanded reissue of their 1984 record – one of 8 projects in their 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition series.

Beyond “Love At First Sting”, the band also reissued expanded versions of 1977’s “Taken By Force”, 1978’s “Tokyo Tapes”, 1979’s “Lovedrive”, 1980’s “Animal Magnetism”, 1982’s “Blackout”, 1985’s “World Wide Live” and 1988’s “Savage Amusement.”
