Joan Jett is so much more than “I Love Rock ’n’ Roll.” It’s true, she became mega-famous from that number-one hit, and that fame intensified with the music video’s endless play on MTV. But Jett had put in hard work long before then, ripping it up onstage as the backbone of the hard-rock legends The Runaways, influencing both her cohort of punk rockers and generations of younger bands with her badass style. As the leader of the hard-rocking Blackhearts, with whom she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, she’s had eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles. Get to know the tough, smart Jett, who has spent her lifetime breaking barriers and challenging expectations.
