“TOP HONORS. A SNARLING, PROPULSIVE look at Joan Jett— ever going her own way, ever loving rock ’n’ roll.” – Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out

A new documentary that follows Joan Jett’s life story - from her early years as the founder of The Runaways and first meeting collaborator Kenny Laguna in 1980, to her presence in pop culture and rock and roll. The film features rare archival footage and interviews from close friends who talk about Jett’s experience in the ’70s punk scene.  

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.
