I want to be just like Joan Jett. It's the truth. I dedicate this blog to the queen of noise herself because she has changed my life. She has opened my doors to new music I instantly fell in love with. I also love The Runaways because without them and Joany, girls would not be able to pick up guitars and sing onstage like guys.
For now, thank you so much for reading and even just viewing my blog! Appreciated much! Follow if you want to see more posts, videos, and more.

Joan Jett’s jacket. Notice the pins.
"keep abortion legal"
"If she says no, it’s rape"
"Pro fucking choice"
This jacket is from about thirty years ago. These issues were big then. Thirty years later, these issues are still present. I was amazed to find these pins on the jacket, and realize this, because I would have thought, back then, if I was alive, that those issues would be solved by NOW.
But they aren’t. Joan Jett knew what was up.
Why can’t we take a minute and soak in her “bad reputation” and think about how in thirty years, abortion and rape culture STILL are huge issues.

Curiositie #6- Trouble is with Joan Jett same. At least she made it clear in an interview with The Morton Report by listing some disagreements with bands during his career. . Like Rush, when Canadians were laughing at the side of the stage during a concert that opened the Runaways. “If I were Rush, I would not be laughing at others,” the original riotgirl. Another case was of southern rockers Molly Hatchet. One member of the group even said “do not believe that we are opening shows f ***”.But nothing is as remembered for Joan as the show with the Scorpions in Germany when Klaus Meine and company had their ego bruised by the reaction of the audience with the show and the girls were even spitting on them in front of the stage. Jett admits that “Bad Reputation” ends up being more than a song. “I dare to do things that boys do, which scares people.”
