ROCKER Meatloaf has unexpectedly had social media users talking on Twitter.

He was brought into a series of memes and viral tweets after a social media mishap by Ivanka Trump.

Who is singer Meatloaf?

Michael Lee Aday better known as Meat Loaf, is an American singer and actor.

He is known for for his powerful, wide-ranging voice and theatrical live shows.

He was born on September, 27, 1947 in Dallas, Texas and is 72.

Meat Loaf's 1977 album Bat Out of Hell went platinum with songs such as Paradise by the Dashboard Light and Two Out of Three Ain't Bad becoming huge hits for the star.

His 1993 hit I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That) reached number one in 28 countries including the UK and USA.

The singer's nickname started in school.

"The 'Loaf' half of his name didn't come about until the rocker was in eighth grade. He says it was coined by a coach, who yelled, 'Get off my foot, you hunk of meatloaf!' when the teen accidentally stepped on him," writes Little Things.

"Clearly, the name stuck – and ended up following him even after he became famous."

Why is he trending?

Meatloaf is trending after Ivanka Trump accidentally tagged @RealMeatLoaf as opposed to her father @realDonaldTrump in a picture on Twitter.

US senate runoff elections are taking place in Georgia on January 5, in which the result will crucially decide which party will control the senate.

President Donald Trump and Ivanka headed down to the state to support the Republican campaign, taking a snap of their flight and uploading it to social media.

Ivanka later tweeted the picture with the caption: "Off to Georgia with Dad! Get out and VOTE Georgia!!!" tagging Meatloaf instead of the president.

What did people say on Twitter about the incident?

Social media users were quick to notice the now-deleted tweet and a flurry of memes ensued.

"Oh, is that an @ out of hell?" one user wrote.

"Who among us hasn't accidentally tagged dad as Meat Loaf?" another tweet that went viral wrote.

"I would just like to point out that she didn't tag her dad in this picture," said another. "However, she did tag Meat Loaf. I feel like there is some symbolism in that."

CNN's DJ Judd tweeted: "One assumes Ivanka Trump did not mean to tag Grammy-winning musical artist Meat Loaf in the selfie she took with the President aboard AF1, en route to tonight's rally in GA, but at this point in the cycle a surprise Meat Loaf appearance wouldn't even be *today's* weirdest thing."

Podcast host Kathleen Smith asked: "Okay but has anyone ever seen Trump and Meatloaf in the same room at the same time?"
