A NEW YORK TIMES CRITIC’S PICK

 

BAD REPUTATION

An Admiring Documentary Portrait of Punk Rock Icon Joan Jett,

Arriving on DVD and Digital HD on January 1 from Magnolia Home Entertainment

 

“Secures Jett’s reputation as a rock n’ roll badass.”

–       Rolling Stone

“…‘Bad Reputation’ is a case study in how a musician stays relevant.”

–       The New York Times

Synopsis

It’s true, Joan 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 many hits to follow, like “I Hate Myself for Loving You,” but that staple of popularity can’t properly define a musician. Jett put her hard work in long before the fame by 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 is a wild ride as Jett and her close friends tell fans how it really was in the burgeoning ‘70s punk scene and the rocky road that led to rock stardom decades on. Their interviews are laced with amazing archival footage and 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.
