I Love Rock ‘N Roll

Of the ten singles that Joan Jett has put on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart (eight as Joan Jett & The Blackhearts; one as just Joan Jett; and one as the Barbusters, which was the name of the band from the film Light of Day), nine of them hit the top 40.  Of those, three hit the top ten.  Among all of those songs, Jett’s very first hit that remains her biggest, and it was a very big one.  Exactly 30 years ago today, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts hit number one with “I Love Rock ‘N Roll” and would stay at the top for seven weeks.  Of all the hits of the 1980s, only four would spend more time at number one.
