For the first time, Pat and Neil perform one of their biggest hits, "Love Is a Battlefield," with young singer/songwriter Avril Lavigne. "This is my first time performing with Pat, and it's the biggest honor ever," Avril says. "This is such a moment for me to remember."

Without strong rockers like Pat, Stevie and Joan, Avril says she wouldn't be where she is today. "These women paved the way for artists like me, and they were the first women in rock and roll. They had to go head-to-head with other male bands, so they're strong, they're independent, they're doing what they love. That's really just what it's all about," she says.
