Joan Jett and the Blackhearts | On Tour

She probably made all the other Warped punk rockers—most of whom are easily half her age—feel like a pack of tubby, PS2-addicted lard asses (you heard me, Reggie & the Full Effect).

This is one lady it's smart not to fuck with. She's always getting into the faces of the faceless people who still give female rock 'n' rollers a difficult time (just because they're not men), and her band has a passion for getting on stage and throwing their amplitude around. She spent her summer on the Warped Tour, making the celebratory rounds with her Blackhearts and a new album, Sinner. The 45-year-old Philly girl is a pistol with iconic status and some ripped abdominals. She probably made all the other Warped punk rockers—most of whom are easily half her age—feel like a pack of tubby, PS2-addicted lard asses (you heard me, Reggie & the Full Effect). One thing I learned about the crow-haired queen of rock 'n' roll the last time I hung out with her backstage is that she can throw a mean spiral pass and is always looking for someone to play catch with. If you see her, invite her to a game of flag football—or just put another dime in the jukebox, baby.
