...even at age 60! Seminal rock musician Joan Jett, who (believe it or not) is turning 60 on September 22, started her music career as a teenager, playing in the all-girl band The Runaways. Since then Jett has gone around the world and back, spending the majority of her life on the road. Her romance with rock has never cooled.

To celebrate Joan's birthday, we have a list below of facts as well as some of her accomplishments. Which do you find most interesting?

After The Runaways imploded, Joan was ready to get back to work, placing an ad in the LA Weekly saying, "Joan Jett wants three good men. Show-offs need not apply." Those who measured up became her band The Blackhearts.
And "they could handle the truth!" JJ Rules. Put Another Dollar In The Jukebox Baby. Inflation! People will always remember the words and go...I didn't know "They" did that!
Possible poll title??

Here's a cool cover of Everyday People by Joan and the Blackhearts. Not only are there some killer guitar solos, but that the beginning there's a nice shot of my friend Mike, her drummer.

I've discovered she was 59 earlier this year and was certainly not believing my eyes when I looked at her recent photographs.

This poll rocks, lol. I had no idea that "Jett" was not a stage name, nor that she was in a movie with Gena Rowlands, et. al. 

May I suggest a few edits to #4" ('Just punctuation, which is really hard to see, so I bolded the characters around the punctuation, as well.)

Joan and partner Kenny Laguna took her first solo album, "Bad Reputation," to 23 record labels and they were rejected by all of them. Joan and Kenny decided to created their own label - Blackheart Records - using Laguna's daughter's college savings. As Laguna said, "We couldn't think of anything else to do but print up records ourselves." The album, which featured musicians including Frank Infante and  Clem Burke, from Blondie, and Steve Jones and Paul Cook, from The Sex Pistols, was named the album No. 36 on their '50 Coolest Albums of All Time" List in 2005. Creating the record label made Joan the first female artist to run her own indie record company.

Actually, the thing about "Jett" being her mother's maiden name is a myth that Joan started years ago, for whatever reason. But, the truth is, that she just came up with the name because she thought it went well with her first name and sounded cool. In a recent interview with Times Talks, she finally confirmed that indeed, the story about it being her mother's maiden name is a myth.

My pick was Kenny Laguna using his daughter's college savings to start Blackheart Records.

Thanks to the IMDb gods for picking this and celebrating Joan.
