Hit So Hard is a portrait of the hell-and-back life of Patty Schemel, the hard-hitting drummer of Courtney Love’s seminal rock band Hole during its peak years. As a young girl who always knew she was “different” from the other kids in her farm town home outside of Seattle, Patty Schemel 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. An unprecedented inside look at one of the 90’s most crucial and controversial groups.
