very strong language, strong sex references

Jett became mega-famous from the number-one hit ‘I Love Rock n Roll’ but that’s only part of the story. That fame intensified with the music video’s endless play on MTV, world tours and countless further hits including ‘I Hate Myself for Loving You’ - but that staple of popularity cannot properly define a musician.

Jett put her hard work in long before, ripping it up onstage as the backbone of the hard-rock legends The Runaways, starting her record label out of the trunk of a car after being rejected by 23 producers, and influencing many musicians — both her cohort of punk rockers and generations of younger bands — with her no-bullshit style.
