Lawmakers started to quote the rock artist Meat Loaf during a recent committee hearing, sparking an “all-out Meat Loaf quotation battle,” according to NPR.

NPR's "Morning Edition" show featured a story about these lawmakers.

Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, quoted the 1970s singer while talking about the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act.

The bipartisan legislation aims to more effectively regulate smaller financial institutions and includes consumer protections for veterans, senior citizens and fraud victims, according to the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs.

Brown spoke out against the bill, saying it didn’t meet all the requirements that its title required.

“As Meat Loaf used to sing, 'two out of three ain’t bad,'” he said. “This bill doesn’t even meet the Meat Loaf minimum.”

But it didn’t stop there. Louisiana Sen. John Neely Kennedy retorted with a Meat Loaf lyric of his own, followed by another.
