Storyline

HIT SO HARD follows the journey of Patty Schemel, the openly gay drummer of Courtney Love's seminal rock band 'Hole.' As a young girl who always knew she was 'different' from the other kids in her farm town home outside of Seattle, Patty never dreamed she would one day have her picture on the cover of 'Rolling Stone.' But she also never fathomed that she could lose it all. A true survivor of what we now know was the disaffected 'slacker' generation, Patty found herself, like her friend Kurt Cobain, embraced by the dark side. Written by Anonymous

Much better than expected
30 April 2018 | by m-scottnewellSee all my reviews

I was expecting something pretty bad considering the bad reviews on it but I always like to make up my own mind. Good thing too because it's quite good. I heard about it listening to Patty's appearance on the I'd Hit That podcast (check it out) and she's quite interesting. I found her brother and mother to be touching, sad and honest too. Watch it.
