ROCK Sex: "Bad Reputation" - Joan Jett > Peaches

ROCK Sex knows "a girl can do what she wants to do".

Todays culture relay is the song "Bad Reputation".


After the pigboy record industry chased out the group The Runaways, they gave guitarist Joan Jett the runaround for years.

But when her hit record "I Love Rock'n'Roll" became one of the biggest single smashes ever, she had her revenge with this follow-up hit and video.

Electroclash provocateur Peaches took that sentiment to its most blatantly profane conclusion using this sample.

PEACHES -"I Don't Give a F@#*!" (2004)

And then Joan joined Peaches for this raucous fracas.

"A girl can do do what she wants to do
And that's what I'm gonna do
And I don't give a damn about my bad reputation!"
