I Love Rock 'n' Roll, Put Another Dime in the Jukebox Baby: Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Community Theatre in Morristown, Friday, October 24th

Emergency post: while Rex and I are not going to see Joan Jett & the Blackhearts at the Community Theatre (a.k.a. The Mayo Center of the Performing Arts) in Morristown until Friday, October 24th, I received a request for a new post from Jason Buckley, whose man parts are shriveling at the thought of James Blunt and Sheryl Crow.

So here goes...I don't give a damn 'bout my bad reputation! Here's a YouTube video to give us all a preview of what's to come in October, with lyrics below if you need them to sing along. I just hope I can find my leather collar in time for the concert.

I don't give a damn bout my reputation
You're living in the past it's a new generation
A girl can do what she wants to do and thats
What I'm gonna do
And I don't give a damn 'bout my bad reputation

Oh no not me

And I don't give a damn 'bout my reputation
Never said I wanted to improve my station
And I'm only doin' good
When I'm havin' fun
And I don't have to please no one
And I don't give a damn
'bout my bad reputation

Oh no, not me
Oh no, not me

I don't give a damn
'bout my reputation
I've never been afraid of any deviation
And I don't really care
If ya think I'm strange
I ain't gonna change
And I'm never gonna care
'bout my bad reputation

Oh no, not me
Oh no, not me

Pedal boys!

And I don't give a damn
'bout my reputation
The world's in trouble
There's no communication
And everyone can say
What they want to say
It never gets better anyway
So why should I care
'bout a bad reputation anyway
Oh no, not me
Oh no, not me

I don't give a damn 'bout my bad reputation
You're living in the past
It's a new generation
And I only feel good
When I got no pain
And that's how Im gonna stay
And I don't give a damn
'bout my bad reputation

Oh no, not me
Oh no, not
Not me, not me

scary thing about Joan Jett.....does she age ..ever?? Love her regardless, but my favorite by her was Crimson and Clover.

Now that you have mentioned it I don't think I have seen a juke box in over 20 years.

I didn't even know about Joan Jett as I tend to stick to my 60's Rock bands as many are still around. Thanks for the YouTube into.

Joan Jett was in my area a week or so ago! Sadly I missed her though.

"Rock" is a funny term.
it's always been co-opted by fluffy pop.
look at the 50s.
Compare Jerry Lee Lewis and *old* elvis with "Rock around the Clock", or any of the other 50's pop-rock tunes.

The same happened to Jazz. It was originally a drug-fuelled black-man's style of music, which was quickly sanitized by uptight-white men, and even distorted so far to become Aeorbics music - "Jazzercise".

Now Jazz is elevator music, and "Rock" hasn't even pretended to be dangerous in at least a decade.

although one could argue that rock hasn't existed since the 60's, because Rock, in it's earliest incarnations had a very heavy shuffle feel.

Reading the post reminds just one few things, night party, club, friends, loud music, screams and lot.
