Joan Jett Opens 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Ceremony with Dave Grohl
She will become a member of the Rock Hall's 2015 class later this evening in Cleveland, where she and her band the Blackhearts will be inducted by pop star Miley Cyrus. Jett's three-song set also featured a guest appearance by Cyrus, as well as Tommy James – the author and original performer of the Blackhearts' set-closing "Crimson and Clover."
Jett opened with an update of her 1980 hit "Bad Reputation," before original Blackhearts bassist Gary Ryan and Grohl joined her for "Cherry Bomb," an anthem from Jett's early days in the all-girl punk band the Runaways. Jett didn't perform her biggest hit, a 1981 cover of the Arrows' "I Love Rock 'n' Roll" that hurtled her and the Blackhearts to the top of the charts.
