Miley Cyrus either rocks out with Joan Jett or else destroys three of her songs. You decide. I’m an old Joan Jett fan, dating back all the way to 1977-1978. I knew a guy who had produced the Runaways album. He said that all of the Runaways chicks were bisexual, “all of them, every one of them.” He acted like he was amazed at that. I wasn’t. Those girls were also on drugs at the time. And they really were teenagers too. All of them were about 15-17 when they made that album.This was one of the original proto-punk albums.
Joan later split off and formed Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. “I Don’t Give a Damn About My Reputation” was recorded on an album in 1981. I don’t know when “I Hate Myself for Loving You” was recorded. In 1981 I was hearing rumors from women in the know, including women I was dating, that Jett was bisexual. “She likes girls,” is what I was told. This is a long-standing rumor. I don’t think she has ever married.
On a side note, doesn’t she look fantastic? I believe she is 51 years old.
I wonder how many people in that crowd were Republicans. What they don’t realize is that rock and rock in general, with a few exceptions, and punk rock in particular, was revolutionary music. It was always part of the Left, and in particular, it was the leading edge of the Left in the Culture War. The true Culture Warriors ought to realize that. Someday in the future, or perhaps now already, Joan Jett will be on loudspeakers at the Republican Convention. Do these idiots have any idea of what they are listening to?
Once Republicans start rocking out to the best and most revolutionary music, the music is gone and has lost all of its value. Sure it has a nice beat, but do you have any idea of what exactly you are listening to? Why don’t you light up a joint, go get an abortion, burn the flag and go to your best friends gay wedding at the local hippie commune?.
Rock music was always revolutionary, and the best rock music always will be. It’s sacrilege to play such music at a Tea Party rally. The music, after all, has a message. Do you have any idea what that message is, you idiots? It’s the message of the Left in the Culture War, you dipshits. It’s not just another goddamned commodity!
