...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??

They all were great (the Runaways!) and Cherie Currie, fronting put them over the top! Today I love Cherie, Lita & Joan and will always deeply miss Sandy West (The Heartbeat of the Runaways!) gone far too soon! ROCK ON!!!

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.

Typo in #2 (Joan was still in high school when she joined the band...) and #11 (Kristen Stewart).

Joan Jett rocked my youth with 'I Love Rock'N'Roll'. Got some songs of the Runaways on my stick.
