Around the world, people are celebrating the life and career of American singer Meat Loaf, who passed away this week at age 74.

As well as an extensive discography, the performer was also known for his appearances in films like Fight Club, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Wayne's World, and - most importantly - Spice World.

Yes, in the bizarre 1997 cult-classic film, Meat Loaf played the Spice Girls' bus driver Dennis - and many fans are today remembering his cameo as one of the most "iconic" moments in the film.

In the unforgettable scene, Meat Loaf makes the cheesiest, most hilarious reference to his 1993 hit I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That).

If you don't remember, it all goes down when the Spice Girls' manager Clifford is speaking to Dennis (Meat Loaf) about the bus toilets, which have broken down.

Asked if he can fix the toilets himself, Dennis replies: "Hey man, I love these girls, and I'd do anything for them. But I won't do that."

Iconic, indeed.

Fans of Spice World couldn't help but notice that most of Meat Loaf's memorials made no mention of his legendary cameo in the film and took to Twitter to make sure it wasn't forgotten.

One wrote: "Meat Loaf had a fun, weird acting career. loved him as the spice girls’ bus driver in ‘Spice World.’"

A second fan tweeted: "Dammit 2022… Meat Loaf was a rare individual indeed. A well done life, sir. He was the best thing about “Spice World.” RIP, Marvin."

"RIP Spice World star, Meat Loaf," commented a third.

Detailing the scene, one fan tweeted: "the best meat loaf moment was when he played the spice girls’ bus driver in Spice World the movie & they ask him if he can fix the bus’s broken toilets and he goes 'ill do anything for those girls… but I won’t do that.'"

Another wrote: "Aw. Farewell Meatloaf who will always be Dennis the bus driver in #SpiceWorld to me."

Remembering that Victoria Beckham also got behind the wheel of the Spice Girls bus, a third tweeted: "Sad to hear my (2nd) favourite bus driver ever has passed away. What a legend."

Hoping to re-live the iconic moment once again, another Twitter user suggested: "To celebrate the life and career of Meatloaf, they should really consider putting Spice World: The Movie on [Netflix] again."

We couldn't agree more!
