Joan Jett and The Blackheart on RockWalk sign now

Petition to add Joan Jett and the Blackhearts to Hollywoods Rockwalk

Joan Jett first appeared in the music industry as a founding member of The Runaways an all girl teen age rock band. In 1977 they recorded Live in Japan their most successful album, in San Francisco on New Years Eve 1978 the band gave their last performance.

Despite the harsh treatment Jett had received by the music industry and critics as a member of The Runaways she continued to pursue her music career in England on a solo project.

It would not be until March 20, 1982 when Jett found true success, her single
I Love Rock N Roll hit number 1 and stayed there for seven weeks, the LP would top out at number #5. Jett had been rejected by no less than twenty three labels, formed a partnership with Kenny Laguna, formed her own band The Blackhearts, started an independent record label Blackheart Records and released Bad Reputation before I Love Rock N Roll shot her to fame. The Rest is Rock N Roll History


Today I Love Rock N Roll is the #28th song of ALL Time

Jett was one of the first women to create her own Independent Label and she still controls that label today

Jett has three top Ten Records

Jett has also appeared in various Hollywood productions

Jett wrote Alice Coopers Hit House of Fire

There are more than 100 Entries on the billboards credited to Jett

Rolling Stone Named Jett #87 for Best Guitarist of all time.
(She should have been higher)

Her label Blackheart Records has already surpassed the success of Herb Albert
The man who started A&M Records

Since 1977 Joan Jett has been producing and touring worldwide, after 27 years she is still out there performing, despite being hit with batteries and spit upon while performing. Her latest Album Naked currently released in Japan is available to fans through her website by download or order.

Jetts DVD Real Wild Child Video Anthology includes the Original Video of Bad Reputation which is Jetts response to the rejection of the major labels. Also Jett and longtime friend and partner Kenny Laguna comments on the video and why the original video was banned by MTV, a rare glimpse of the hurdles Jett had to overcome to achieve any success at all. Making her success even more astounding at a time when stood she alone and battled the male dominated industry.
