More About

Along with the Plasmatics' Wendy O. Williams and Joan Jett, few '80s women sounded like they could straight-up kick your ass into oblivion like Pat Benatar. Her 1979 debut album, In the Heat of the Night, held ten sassy tracks including "Heartbreaker" and a handful of covers (John "Still Cougar" Mellencamp and others). The next five years would bring other femme-rock anthems like "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" and "You Better Run." Benatar's output grew more infrequent after the birth of daughter Haley in 1985 and her sound softened, but vocally she was still fiery. The past decade or so, Benatar and husband Neil Giraldo have resumed touring the world, recapturing her '80s audience while bringing a new generation of women who gravitate to the ageless whoop-ass girl-power jams into the fold.
