A look at the life of Joan Jett, from her early years as the founder of The Runaways and first meeting with collaborator Kenny Laguna in 1980 to her enduring presence in pop culture as a rock’n’roll Pioneer.
It’s true, Joan Jett became mega-famous from the number-one hit “I Love Rock n Roll,” but that’s only part of the story. That fame intensified with the music video’s endless play on MTV, world tours and many hits to follow like “I Hate Myself for Loving You,” but that staple of popularity can’t properly define a musician. Jett put her hard work in long before the fame, ripping it up onstage as the backbone of the hard-rock legends The Runaways, starting her record label out of the trunk of a car after being rejected by 23 labels, and influencing many musicians—both her cohort of punk rockers and generations of younger bands—with her no-bullshirt style. BAD REPUTATION gives you a wild ride as Jett and her close friends tell you how it really was in the burgeoning ’70s punk scene and the rocky road to rock stardom decades on. Their interviews are laced with amazing archival footage. The theme is clear: Even though people tried to define Jett, she never compromised. She will kick your ass, and you’ll love her all the more for it.
Featuring Joan Jett, Adam Horovitz, Billie Joe Armstrong, Cherie Currie, Debbie Harry, Iggy Pop, Michael J. Fox, Pete Townshend
