Bad Reputation

Joan Jett was born on September 22, 1958.

Let's wish a Happy 53rd Birthday to Joan Jett, one of my favorite ladies from the 1980s. ;-)

In the Los Angeles area of the early '80s, Joan Jett was the image of post-punk/pre-metal hard rock. Her music had insistent guitars and a hard-edged rhythm. And her style was the paradigm of rebellious, anti-authoritarian youth. In short, she was the essence of how an early '80s Rock musician should be.

Even now, her iconic look from back in the day is still the "quintessential rocker babe" in the nostalgic memory of popular culture.

So let's send appreciative vibs to Joan for a Happy Birthday.

Time for some music.
