It’s pretty clear Joan Jett rules and that is why she comes in at number three on our countdown of the top women in rock.
Jett was a member of The Runaways and launched a successful rock career in the 1980s – both solo and with her band, The Blackhearts. Joan’s probably best known for her mega-hit cover “I Love Rock n’ Roll,” “I Hate Myself for Loving You” and “Bad Reputation.”
Joan not only sings better than you – she can also wail on a guitar. Rolling Stone even put her on their “Top 100 Guitarist of All Time” list. Plus, Joan is a monster song writer.
A couple summers back, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts hit the road with Alice Cooper and Motorhead. I'm sure that was one hell of a tour!
