Gaining in popularity from their success from „Blackout”, Scorpions performed to over 375,000 fans on Day 2 at the three-day US Festival concert held in San Bernardino, California during Memorial Day Weekend of 1983. The concert was aired live on MTV, giving the band wide exposure in a live show.It was not until 1984 and the release of Love at First Sting that the band finally cemented their status as the internationally popular band they are now known as. Propelled by the single „Rock You Like a Hurricane”, Love at First Sting climbed the charts and went double platinum in the USA a few months after its release.MTV gave the album’s videos „Rock You Like a Hurricane”, „Bad Boys Running Wild”, „Big City Nights”, and the power ballad „Still Loving You” significant airtime greatly contributing to the album’s success. The channel even supplied Scorpions with the nickname „The Ambassadors of Rock” to the chagrin of industry insiders who recognized the executive influence behind the scenes. The Rolling Stone magazine named them „The Heroes of Heavy Metal”.
