Music video by Aerosmith performing Lightning Strikes. (C) 1982 SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT.
"Lightning Strikes" is a song by American hard rock band Aerosmith. It was released as the first of two singles from the band's 1982 album Rock in a Hard Place. It is notable as Aerosmith's only charting single from the lineup without guitarists Joe Perry and Brad Whitford, who were replaced by Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay after they left the band in 1979 and 1981 respectively.
The song was written by Richie Supa, a friend and collaborator of the band. Despite Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford leaving the band before the album's release, he can be heard playing the rhythm guitar parts on the song. The song was released as a promotional single to rock radio in 1982 and reached #21 on the U.S. Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.
