Other well known Joan Jett songs include “Crimson and Clover,” “Love Is All Around,” “Do You Wanna Touch Me,” “Light of Day,” “Little Liar,” and “I Hate Myself For Loving You.” Jett is distinguished by both her guitar playing and her mezzo soprano singing voice.

In the 80's, with the help of producer Kenny Laguna, Jett started a band called the Blackhearts. They used their own money to press records and set up an independent system of distribution, even selling records out of the trunks of their cars at the end of concerts.

The demand for Joan Jett’s recordings were too high for Laguna to keep up, however. Eventually, Jett was given a chance to sign to the Boardwalk Records label. At that point, the Blackhearts recorded a new album, which included a new version of “I Love Rock and Roll,” which had previously spent seven weeks at the top of the Billboard charts in the year 1982.

Joan Jett and the Blackhearts would go on to put out a string of hits and tour with such artists as Aerosmith, The Police, and Queen. Jett was the first American act to perform on the other side of the Iron Curtain. She also fronted the first English speaking rock and roll act to perform in Panama and the Dominican Republic.
