"Love Is a Battlefield" is a song written by Holly Knight and Mike Chapman, notably recorded by Pat Benatar. It was released as a single from Benatar's album Live from Earth, which was popular in 1983 and 1984. The single has been certified gold and is her most successful single in the Americas, as it topped Billboard's Mainstream Rock Chart and made the top five of the Billboard Hot 100. It topped the Australian singles chart for seven weeks in 1984.

The video, which depicted Benatar as a teenage runaway, was nominated for an MTV Video Music Award for Best Female Video and was viewable on the DVD for the movie 13 Going on 30. The single was unlike most of Benatar's previous work, as it featured an electronic dance element, but guitars and drums were still present. The song won Benatar a Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance.
