Love at First Sting is the ninth studio album by German heavy metal band Scorpions. It was released on 27 March 1984 on Harvest/EMI in Europe and Mercury in the US. The album contains “Rock You Like a Hurricane”, “Still Loving You”, and “Big City Nights”, three of the band’s most famous songs.

The album was recorded in 1983 and 1984 at Dierks Studios in Stommeln, West Germany. Initial sessions took place in Stockholm’s Polar Studios in the Summer of 1983 with ex-Rainbow members Jimmy Bain on bass and Bobby Rondinelli on drums, but nothing made it to the final album. Love at First Sting is notable in that it was one of the first digitally recorded heavy metal records ever released.

It became the group’s most successful album in the US, where it peaked at number 6 on the Billboard 200 chart in 1984, and went double-platinum by the end of the year, reaching triple-platinum status in 1995. The song “Rock You Like a Hurricane” reached number 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the same year; “Still Loving You” reached number 64 on the same chart, number 14 in Germany, and number 3 in the French and Swiss single charts.
