Grab your guitars, ladies – Joan wants us with her in the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame!
Joan Jett: pioneer, rockstar, and now advocate for equal representation of women in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In an industry dominated by men, Joan is no stranger to defending the validity of her craft; after The Runaways dissolved in the late 1970’s, Joan shopped around for new record labels, and it was only after being rejected by 23 record labels that she formed her own label, Blackheart Records as a vehicle for her music. It’s nearly 40 years later and not only are The Runaways considered pioneers in female-fronted rock music, but Joan Jett is one of the most respected musicians in her industry as proven by her April 18th, 2015 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame – the only female inductee.
Did you know…that women musicians only make up 10% of the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame? Joan told Billboard, “There should be more women in the Hall Of Fame, and more women in rock. They’re out there, they just don’t get the notice the pop girls do.” We agree completely, Joan!
To the next generation of female rockers, jamming in garage bands: keep rocking, we can’t wait to see you in the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame next to Joan one day!
