About the Album

Taken by Force is the fifth studio album by German band Scorpions, released by RCA Records in 1977. This was the first Scorpions album to feature drummer Herman Rarebell and the final studio album to feature guitarist Uli Jon Roth. Roth left the band in 1978 following the end of the album’s tour, and was eventually replaced by Matthias Jabs.

The lyrics to “We’ll Burn the Sky”were initially a poem written by Monika Dannemann, the last girlfriend of Jimi Hendrix, as a tribute to him after he died. Later, she became involved with Scorpions’ guitarist Uli Jon Roth (himself an admirer of Jimi Hendrix) and they worked together on some songs. The music was written by the Scorpions founder and rhythm guitarist Rudolf Schenker.

The album cover photography was taken by Michael von Gimbut; his third Scorpions album cover commission. Like their previous two albums, Taken by Force caused controversy with its cover art which again resulted in the artwork being replaced in most markets with an alternative cover using photographs of the band members.
