Eliminator is the eighth studio album by the American rock band ZZ Top. It was released on March 23, 1983, byWarner Bros. Records. Recorded in Tennessee during 1982, the album was produced by the band's manager Bill Ham and peaked at the top of the charts in many countries. "Gimme All Your Lovin'", "Got Me Under Pressure", "Sharp Dressed Man", "TV Dinners" and "Legs" were released as singles. A Diamond certified album, Eliminator is ZZ Top's most successful release with sales of over 10 million copies in the United States.
The band wanted to expand on the synthesizer sound of their 1981 record El Loco. Influenced by new wave,Eliminator′s tracks were recorded with a combination of the synthesizer, drum machine and sequencer. The album used music videos as successful promotional tools — the videos for "Gimme All Your Lovin'", "Sharp Dressed Man" and "Legs" all received regular rotation on MTV. A customized 1930s Ford coupe, depicted on the album cover, could be seen in the videos. Following Eliminator′s release, ZZ Top embarked on a worldwide concert tour.
Often considered ZZ Top's most popular release, the record was ranked at number 398 in Rolling Stone magazine's500 Greatest Albums of All Time and was listed at number 39 in The 100 Greatest Albums of the 80s.
After the success of "Legs", Eliminator was reissued with the song's edited single remix replacing the original version. The single remix was also used when Eliminator was issued on CD in 1984. In 2008, Eliminator was remastered and reissued, with the addition of bonus tracks and a DVD containing music videos and live performances. The original version of "Legs" was restored, making its first appearance on CD, while the single mix of the song remained on the album as a bonus track.
