“Shakedown” is a song by Canadian new wave rock band Rough Trade centered on singer Carole Pope and multi-instrumentalist Kevan Staples. The band was noted for their provocative lyrics and stage antics; singer Pope often performed in bondage attire, and their 1981 hit “High School Confidential” was one of the first explicitly lesbian-themed Top 40 hits in the world..”Shakedown” was recorded exclusively for inclusion on the soundtrack for the 1980 psychological thriller Cruising directed by William Friedkin and starring Al Pacino. The single was only released in the Netherlands by Lorimar Records.

The b-side “When I Close My Eyes I See Blodd” recorded by Madelynn von Ritz is another track from the film’s soundtrack.
