Joan Jett is one bad mamajama!
The leather-clad Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has contributed some of the most imporant stadium-rocking songs in the history of American music (as you’ll see below in spades).
For the 63-year-old Pennsylvania-born Jett, music was a necessity. She got her first guitar, even when the salesperson tried to dissuade her from buying electric, and she didn’t look back.
First, Jett was part of the Runaways, an all girl group that kicked butt.Then she went solo and brought forth a number of other mind-melters. So, without further ado, let’s check out Jett’s Top 10 Songs below, shall we?
