One of rock’s tried and true badasses is finally getting her long overdue recognition on film. A documentary on the legendary career of Joan Jett is due out and is called, fittingly, “Bad Reputation”.
The film will encompass her trailblazing career, which from one of her first appearances on TV with the Runaways on the old Tom Snyder show (check for Joan around 24 minutes in),…
,…to her appearing on one of Blondie’s new tunes alongside another pioneer, Debbie Harry, is as potent as ever.
As for my favorite Joan Jett tune, I have to go with her remake of “Crimson and Clover”. I remember watching the video as a kid and being enthralled from her first ‘Ahhhh’ and opening guitar riff.
