Joan Jett & Blackhearts - I Love Rock N' Roll RIAA Certified Platinum! Click here to see this CD at!

By Rob O'Connor

A surprise early-'80s superstar, Joan Jett had pretty much been left for dead by a record industry that was choosing not to remember her all-female teenage band the Runaways. Her second solo album, I Love Rock n Roll cherished a loud guitar crunch clearly not in fashion in the dance pop-lite era. But Jett also knew the value of a hook, and the songs contained herein use them to memorable effect. The title track became an anthem. Her resuscitation of Tommy James and the Shondells' "Crimson and Clover" proved she meant it. "(I'm Gonna) Run Away" and "Nag" solidified her point. The jump-start was immediate and led Jett to record a succession of satisfying albums.

1. I Love Rock N' Roll9. You're Too Possessive
2. (I'm Gonna) Run Away10. Little Drummer Boy
3. Love Is Pain11. Oh Woe Is Me
4. Nag12. Louie Louie
5. Crimson And Clover13. You Don't Know What You've Got (Live)
6. Victim Of Circumstance14. Summertime Blues

8. Be Straight

"The album that made me a freak, the song that expanded my mind past Dukes of Hazard and Dallas, the woman that made me think strange and exciting thoughts in the seventh grade. Joan Jet made rock and roll my religion, my life. Everyone needs a copy of this record, just like they need Desolation Boulevard and Raw Power by the Stooges."


"My favorite song now is I Love Rock 'N Roll!!! It is, by far, the best song, and it somewhat angers me that Britney Spears put that song on her CD because some people think that SHE made the song, but sHE DIDN'T! But, the good thing about her "bringing up" I Love Rock 'N Roll is that I would not know the song, (I was born in 1988) but now i do. P.S. Joan Jett is AWESOME! [Editor's note: Joan Jett put Tommy James' 1967 hit Crimson and Clover on her album. "Covering" someone's song is usually a compliment.]"
