FFS, this is strange, I never thought it was a song about guns or shooting. I think the lyric "Put up your dukes, let's get down to it" kinda gives it away.

Benatar must be thirsty.

No one is debating that, wondering where anyone has said this?

Just questioning the reasoning, it's not complicated.

I always knew it was about a guy who was known for breaking women's hearts.

I admire her not wanting people to hear about others getting shot though.

I can still remember having a broken crown and being upset by metallica's crown king nothing.

Alice Cooper no longer performs ------- a Kiss, but it's probably because it was a never a huge single and he can only play so many songs from his huge catalog.

Fun fact: In incidences of domestic violence during the fight(s) leading to the death of the victim. When the perpetrator brandishes a weapon of any kind in a threatening manner during the conflict, one of the last things said by the victim is summarized as "Go ahead"... stated as a challenge.

Me thinks... you can never know anyone well enough to say that.
