"Shakedown" is a 1987 single by Bob Seger that is from the soundtrack of the film Beverly Hills Cop II. The music was written by Harold Faltermeyer, who wrote the score for the film, and Keith Forsey, and the lyrics by Seger.

The music video featured scenes from the film intercut with Seger and the band performing it, with some members approaching glam metal moves. "Shakedown" became a number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100, Seger's only such top mark singles-wise, as well as the Album Rock Tracks chart, where it became his second number-one hit, spending four weeks at the top. In Canada, it went to number one as well, topping the RPM 100 national singles chart on August 1 of the same year.

In 1988, "Shakedown" was nominated for both the Academy Award for Best Original Song and Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song, but it lost both awards to Dirty Dancing's " The Time of My Life". At the 60th Academy Awards, "Shakedown" was performed by Little Richard.

Cover versions by an uncredited artist appeared in two episodes of the animated series The Game Master. However, due to legal issues, these songs have been edited out of the DVD releases of the show.
