Rock and roll queen Joan Jett scores a 2015 nomination for possible induction into the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
She is best-known as the founding members of the all-female Runaways, as well as for heading Joan Jett & the Blackhearts; moreover, Jett has recorded music as a solo artist.
In this year's nominee list, she is nominated alongside The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Chic, Green Day, electronica group Kraftwerk, The Marvelettes, N.W.A., Nine Inch Nails, The Smiths, The Spinners, Sting, Bill Withers, as well as the late musicians Stevie Ray Vaughan and Lou Reed.
In September of 2013, she released an album entitled Unvarnished, which was well-received by music critics, including Digital Journal. She was released that project via her record label, Blackheart Records, and it marked her first album in seven years.
Throughout her career in the rock genre, which spans well over three decades, Jett is known for her hit singles "I Love Rock N' Roll," "I Hate Myself For Loving You" and her cover of Tommy James' "Crimson and Clover," all of which went to the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.
Ironically enough, three months prior, Jett made Digital Journal's list of five most overdue acts for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. Let's hope the third time's the charm and that she will make it in.
