In 1981, Benatar won her first Grammy for Best Female Rock Performance (Crimes Of Passion), while her Precious Time album sold over two million copies in the U.S. and outdid its predecessor on the chart by reaching #1. The single "Fire And Ice" brought Benatar her second Grammy.

Other Platinum albums followed: Get Nervous (1982) was a Top 5 hit and featured the Grammy-winning "Shadows Of The Night"; Live From Earth (1983) boasted the Gold, Grammy-winning Top 5 hit "Love Is A Battlefield" (and its classic music video), and Tropico (1984) made the Top 5 with "We Belong," for which Benatar was nominated for the Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.

In 1984, Seven The Hard Way was certified Gold and spawned the Top 10 Grammy-nominated "Invincible," the theme for the film The Legend Of Billie Jean.

In 1985, "Sex As A Weapon," also from Seven The Hard Way, brought another Grammy nomination.

Wide Awake In Dreamland (1988) went Gold and spun off the Top 20 hit "All Fired Up" and two more Grammy nominations, for the latter song and, in 1989, for "Let's Stay Together."

Also in 1989, Benatar’s first hits compilation, Best Shots was certified Gold.

Of the decade's 10 Grammy Award presentations, Benatar was nominated for Best Female Rock Performance in eight of them, winning four consecutive times, an unprecedented feat.

In 1991, Benatar released the ahead of its time retro-swing album, True Love, backed by the Roomful of Blues rhythm section.

In 1993, Benatar successfully modernized her sound for the critically-acclaimed Gravity’s Rainbow while continuing to tour with Fleetwood Mac, the Steve Miller Band and others.

In 1997, her first original album in four years, Innamorata (CMC International), was released.

The 1998 release of 8-15-80 (CMC International), a concert album recorded in 1980 at San Francisco’s Old Waldorf, kicked off several Pat Benatar concert CD releases, including The King Biscuit Flower Hour (1999), Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo: Summer Vacation Tour Soundtrack, Live At Electric Ladyland (2002), From The Front Row: Live (DVD-Audio, 2003), Greatest Hits Live (2003), In The Heat Of The Night: Live (2004), and the January 2005 reissue of Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo: Summer Vacation Tour Soundtrack.
