Joan Jett is my hero. We share a birthday, and like yours truly, her dedication and fervor towards rock n' roll borders on religion. I also can't think of a better role model for my daughter, and for my soon-to-be-here second child. My wife posted the quote below on her Instagram today in honour of International Women's Day, and I have shamelessly stolen it. Double J has been 'stickin' it to the man' (both figuratively and literally) since the day she picked up a guitar. Her instructor told her nice girls don't play electric ones, and should only sing folk songs. Stick it. Record labels told her no one would book an all-girl rock n' roll band. Stick it. These same execs told her going solo would be a catastrophe. See above. Joan has sold millions of records and has never hidden who she is - all you have to do is listen to her lyrics to get the full story. Joan loves Rock n' Roll. And as for her 'bad reputation', I hope millions of young women earn one just the way she did.
