14 Interesting Facts You Never Knew About The Scorpions

Part of my work with Alex is to discover new channels to comment on, on YouTube. One of the videos I found was a playlist by The Scorpions. I was interested to find out some information about The Scorpions and that is where this post idea came from. My plan is to do the same for other bands and artists. However, in future I will try and keep to a more EDM-style act than The Scorpions. However, at the time they were out, they were one of my favourite bands. Therefore, I am bringing you this post about them.
