Meat Loaf wanted to be very clear that his name was not "Meatloaf."
He said his name was on "every poster, every album and every ticket as two words."
He died on Thursday aged 74.
Meat Loaf had no time for people who spell his name as one word.
The singer, who died on Thursday aged 74, once said: "When I see my name spelt with one word, I want to slap and choke people."
"If you do that, you got to be a moron. It's on every poster, every album and every ticket as two words. If you spell it as one, you're an idiot. Bottom line," he said.
The quote features in The Guardian newspaper's online style guide reminding writers how to present his name, and past into journalistic folklore.
It is not clear when he made the remarks.
The singer's death was announced on his Facebook page on Thursday. It did not specify a cause of death.
Meat Loaf, whose real name was Michael Lee Aday, sold more than 100 million albums. He was best known for his best-selling album "Bat out of Hell" and his appearances in films like "The Rocky Horror Picture Show."
