Pat Benatar Rules

If you grew up in the 1980s then you know who Pat Benatar is. She was an awesome singer, an original "rock chick", who had numerous hit including "Love is a Battlefield", "Heartbreaker", "We Belong", "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" and "You Better Run" -- the second video to ever appear on MTV on August 1st, 1981 (right after "Video Killed the Radio Star") and the first by a woman. Pat's songs populate jukeboxes around the world today and they define modern day classic rock.

Best of all, Pat's a New York girl, born in Brooklyn (yeah!) and raised on Long Island (yeah ...). Anyway, she has a new book out called Between a Heart and Rock Place and she recently did a wonderful interview on WNYC that you can listen to here.

Please keep it civil, intelligent, and expletive-free. Otherwise, opine away.
