Joan Jett - I Love Rock N' Roll



Joan Jett - I Love Rock N' Roll - About the song


Jett was touring England as a member of an all teenage girl group called The Runaways when she discovered this song. She wanted to record it with The Runaways, but the other members didn't like the song and made the mistake of passing it up. So, in 1979, Jett recorded it with Paul Cook and Steve Jones of The Sex Pistols and released it as a B-side. Finally, in 1981, Jett recorded the song with her band The Blackhearts, resulting in a monster hit. Jett recalled her version with the Pistols duo:


"I did a very early version with them, it was great working with them, and no, there was no sense of trepidation on my part, despite the fact that everyone was telling me they were the most notorious band on the planet."


I Love Rock N' Roll - Lyrics


I saw him dancing there by the record machine I knew he must have been about seventeen The beat was going strong Playing my favorite song And I could tell it wouldn't be long till he was with me, yeah me And I could tell it wouldn't be long till he was with me, yeah me Singing, I love rock and roll So put another dime in the jukebox, baby I love rock and roll So come and take your time and dance with me Ow! He smiled, so I got up and asked for his name But that don't matter, he said, 'cause it's all the same He said, "Can I take you home Where we can be alone?" And next we were moving on, he was with me, yeah me Next we were moving on, he was with me, yeah me Singing, I love rock and roll So put another dime in the jukebox, baby I love rock and roll So come and take your time and dance with me Ow! He said, "Can I take you home Where we can be alone?" Next we're moving on, he was with me, yeah me And we'll be moving on and singing that same old song, yeah with me Singing, I love rock and roll So put another dime in the jukebox, baby I love rock and roll So come and take your time and dance with me I love rock and roll So put another dime in the jukebox, baby I love rock and roll So come and take your time and dance with I love rock and roll So put another dime in the jukebox, baby I love rock and roll So come and take your time and dance with I love rock and roll So put another dime in the jukebox, baby I love rock and roll So come and take your time and dance with I love rock and roll So put another dime in the jukebox, baby I love rock and roll So come and take your time and dance with me
