Watch Joan Jett Perform at the 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame isn’t known for its inductions of female artists, we’ve talked about it many times in our “Induct These Women” series. But in 2015, the famed institution inducted Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. During the induction Jett stated,

“I was really going to try not to cry and be tough. Hey, Mom and Dad, did you ever think that Christmas guitar would lead to this? I come from a place where rock ‘n’ roll means something. it means more than music, more than fashion, more than the pose. Rock ‘n’ roll is an idea and an ideal. Sometimes, because we love the music and we make the music, we forget the political impact it has around the world.

Before the induction itself, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts took to the stage with “Bad Reputation,” “Cherry Bomb,” and “Crimson and Clover” with Miley Cyrus, Dave Grohl, and original “Crimson and Clover” singer Tommy James.
