The original Runaway Joan Jett still has a Bad Reputation and nothing is stopping her.
Her upcoming docu-movie Bad Reputation is hitting theaters for one night only September 26, 2018. Read on…
BAD REPUTATION had its World Premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. The movie is a must see, because it is a part of rock history. Joan Jett is rock culture, she is royalty for the women’s movement in rock at a time when the industry was a mans world.

Joan Jett is so much more than “I Love Rock ’n’ Roll.” It’s true, she became mega-famous from the number-one hit, and that fame intensified with the music video’s endless play on MTV. But that staple of popularity can’t properly define a musician. Jett put her hard work in long before the fame, ripping it up onstage as the backbone of the hard-rock legends The Runaways, influencing many musicians—both her cohort of punk rockers and generations of younger bands—with her no-bullshit style. Bad Reputation gives you a wild ride as Jett and her close friends tell you how it really was in the burgeoning ’70s punk scene, and their interviews are laced with amazing archival footage. The theme is clear: even though people tried to define Jett and keep her stuck to one hit, she never compromised. She will kick your ass, and you’ll love her all the more for it.
Magnolia Pictures will release BAD REPUTATION in theaters, On Demand, on iTunes and on Amazon Prime Video September 28, 2018.
