Long before the hit video for "I Love Rock n Roll" hit MTV, Joan Jett put in endless hours of hard work; 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 labels, and influencing many musicians - both her cohort of punk rockers and generations of younger bands - with her no-bullshit style. BAD REPUTATION gives you a wild ride as Jett and her close friends tell you how it really was in the burgeoning ’70s punk scene, and the rocky road to rock stardom decades on. The theme is clear: even though people tried to define Jett, she never compromised. She will kick your ass, and you’ll love her all the more for it.
