Crimes of Passion is the second studio album by American rock singer Pat Benatar, released on August 5, 1980 by Chrysalis Records. The album is the first to feature Myron Grombacher on drums, beginning a long tenure in Benatar's band that would last into the late-1990s.
The album debuted on the US Billboard 200 album chart the week ending August 23 and held at No. 2 for five weeks in the US in January 1981, behind John Lennon and Yoko Ono's Double Fantasy. It contains the hits "Hit Me with Your Best Shot", "You Better Run", "Treat Me Right", plus a cover of Kate Bush's international hit, "Wuthering Heights". Crimes of Passion is Benatar's biggest selling career album, having been certified 4x Platinum in the United States alone. In Billboard magazine's year end chart, Crimes of Passion was listed at number 5.
The song "Hell Is for Children", which was not released as an A-side single, was also a hit on album-rock stations. A live version of this song from her album Live from Earth was released as the B-side of her "Love Is a Battlefield" single three years later. The song was featured in the 1981 animated film American Pop, as well as on the soundtrack.
