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.

Crimes of Passion is Benatar’s biggest selling album, having been certified 4× Platinum (for shipments of over four million copies) in the United States and 5× Platinum (for shipments of 500,000 copies) in Canada. It placed at number 5 on Billboard magazine’s 1981 year-end album chart. It peaked at number 2 in both Canada and France, and rose to number 6 in New Zealand. It was also Benatar’s biggest hit to that point in Australia (number 16) and her first album to chart in Sweden (number 27).

In 1981, Benatar won her first Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance thanks to Crimes of Passion. Crimes of Passion was reissued and remastered on Capitol Records in 2006.
