Bad Reputation


Presented by CaneFire Films

Joan Jett’s hard-won path to fame is the focus of a new documentary, Bad Reputation. Jett discusses the challenge of breaking down rock’s dug-in boys’ club, whether she was brushing aside glib critical dismissals or trying to dodge beer bottles and batteries. The Bad Reputation trailer also teases Jett’s monumental musical achievements and influence as a member of the Runaways, a solo artist and as the founder of Blackheart Records. “Tell me I can’t do something – you know, I’m gonna be doing it,” Jett says at the end of the clip. Directed by Kevin Kerslake, the film boasts interviews with an array of musicians including Billie Joe Armstrong, Iggy Pop, Pete Townshend, Debbie Harry, and Miley Cyrus.
