NPR interviews Joan Jett on her musical journey from The Runaways to the Blackhearts and everything in between.
“Growing up, Joan Marie Larkin had big dreams. She considered becoming an archaeologist or an astronaut, and she wasn’t going to let society tell her what a girl could or couldn’t do. She eventually turned to music and went on to be one of the most celebrated women in rock: Joan Jett. Bad Reputation, a new documentary out now, traces her hard-fought rise to rock and roll fame.”
