Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Joan Jett Live

Joan Jett performed "Bad Reputation" on the David Letterman Show, March 4, 2010. The song can be taken as both a punk and feminist anthem, with Jett proclaiming, "A girl can do what she wants to do and that's what I'm gonna do." I recommend the film "The Runaways," reviewed here, which depicts Jett as a pioneer in her determination to establish an all-girl hard-rock band. See also the recent review of "Queens of Noise: The Real Story of the Runaways" in the Los Angeles Review of Books.
