"Hit That" is a pop punk song released by the American punk rock band The Offspring. The song is featured as the fourth track on the band's seventh studio album Splinter (2003) and was released as the first single from the album. The song also appears as the 13th track on their Greatest Hits (2005).
"Hit That" was released to radio on November 4, 2003. The single was first released in the U.S. and Australia in December 2003, and in the UK in January 2004. The song also reached the top 20 on the Australian ARIAnet Singles Chart and the UK Singles Chart (No. 13 and No. 11 respectively), and No. 64 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart. The song also topped the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart, proving to be one of their most successful singles for a while. This was the first time an Offspring song would hit No. 1 on that chart since their breakthrough single "Come Out and Play" was released a decade earlier in 1994.
The music video for the song, directed by John Williams and David Lea, depicts a blue computer-generated man's hunt for his runaway dog; the two are shown alternately as the man lip-syncs the lyrics and the dog seeks shelter. The dog is also being chased by a menacing-looking dog catcher. The dog is shown in first person as well as third person. When the owner and the dog catcher finally catch up to the dog, he is in an alleyway with his beloved and several puppies (from the dog's reaction, assumedly they are his). The dog catcher holds up what appears to be a pair of shears. The next day, the dog walks grumpily down the street in a paper cone, implying that the point of the chase was to bring the dog in to be neutered.
The video is based in the United Kingdom, revealed by the unmistakable terraced houses, road markings, vehicle numberplates and the steering wheel in the van (a Ford Transit Connect) being on the right.
