Undercover track listing

Template:Undercover tracks

"She Was Hot" is a song by The Rolling Stones from their 1983 album Undercover.

Recording on "She Was Hot" first began in late 1982. Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, the song is a traditional rock 'n' roll number from the band. The song is notable as both original Rolling Stones pianist Ian Stewart and his replacement Chuck Leavell perform on the recording.

"She Was Hot" was released as the second single from the album on January 24, 1984. The B-side to the single was an Emotional Rescue outtake, "I Think I'm Going Mad." The song did not perform well, reaching only number 44 on the U.S. Charts and number 42 on the U.K. Charts. A memorable video was produced for the song, featuring actress Anita Morris who semi-comically tempts each member of the band. The video version includes the complete second verse ending with "Grab a cap, grab a cab, and baby, come right by". As with its predecessor, "Undercover of the Night," "She Was Hot" was directed by Julien Temple, and was also edited for broadcast on MTV.

The Rolling Stones resurrected "She Was Hot" for the 2006 United States leg of their A Bigger Bang Tour. The song made its live debut on October 11, 2006 in Chicago, and was a regular part of the band's set list since then. A performance of "She Was Hot" was captured for the 2008 concert film and live album Shine a Light.

The song was also covered and reworked by Cheap Trick.
