Shot in the Dark is the second studio album by the American hard rock band Great White, released in 1986. It was originally released by Greenworld Entertainment and subsequently picked up and re-issued by Capitol Records. The original issue featured a different intro to "She Shakes Me" (which was titled "Shake Me"), as well as a completely different recording of "Run Away." These early versions made it to CD on a Japanese edition of 2005. Great White's music in this album shows the transition from the pure heavy metal of the first album to a more blues-influenced style of hard rock, paying homage to the great rock bands of the 70s, like Led Zeppelin and AC/DC.
The album features one of the band's first well-known hits, a cover of The Angels song "Face the Day."
The original CD release was on the Razor & Tie label and was remastered by Steve Hoffman, famous for his audiophile masterings for the DCC and Audio Fidelity labels.
