Joan Jett
The New York Times once described Joan Jett as “the godmother to female musicians with loud guitars and idealistic dreams.” Three decades into her career, the ever-youthful Jett remains an inspiration for any girl?or guy?who possesses a passion for no-frills rock and roll. Not surprisingly, Jett's all-time favorite albums combine great songwriting with a sonic wallop.
