Seven the Hard Way is American rock singer Pat Benatar's sixth studio album, and her seventh album overall, released on October 30, 1985. It debuted on the US Billboard 200 album chart the week of December 14 and peaked at No. 26, producing the hits: "Invincible", "Sex as a Weapon", and "Le Bel Age". The album sold approximately 600,000 in the US and was certified Gold. The Grammy nominated single, "Invincible" was produced by Mike Chapman and recorded for the soundtrack of the Matthew Robbins' movie The Legend of Billie Jean, which, although doing poorly at the box office, became a cult classic to MTV fans in general. The song became a hit single and was included in the album, despite its musical style being quite different from Benatar's at that time and more reminiscent of her earlier efforts. Benatar often commented at her concerts before performing the song that it "is from one of the worst movies ever made." Seven the Hard Way was the last Pat Benatar album to feature bassist Donnie Nossov, who along with drummer Myron Grombacher went on to play with Lita Ford on her breakthrough album, Lita and on the supporting tour.
