As a teaser for the live session releasing on January 11, 2024, here’s ‘Hit Me with Your Best Shot’, a cover of Pat Benatar performed by the beloved Dirty Talons!


Trivia? Fix! “Hit Me with Your Best Shot” was released in 1979 as part of Pat Benatar’s second album, “Crimes of Passion”. It quickly became one of her most famous songs. The song was a huge commercial success, reaching No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 and becoming Benatar’s first Top 10 hit. Although famously associated with Pat Benatar, the song was actually written by Eddie Schwartz, a Canadian songwriter. The song’s music video was one of the early examples of artist promotion on MTV, helping to popularize both the song and Benatar herself in the early 1980s.
