Joan Jett & The Blackhearts have released their first new song in five years, with “Fresh Start.” The new track was recorded especially for the new Jett documentary Bad Reputation, which opens on September 28th. Joan Jett spoke about the new song, telling, “Sometimes you need to say to yourself, 'Am I still enjoying what I’m doing? I need to find the fire again.' Part of it was just thinking about rock in general. It’s always been a young person’s game, writing about sex, love and partying. As rock and rollers get older, what do they write about? I’m not sure there’s an answer, but we’re looking for it.”

At her 2015 Rock Hall induction, Joan Jett spoke frankly about the passion and promise of true rock n' roll: “I come from a place where rock n' roll means something. It means more than music, it means more than fashion, more than a good pose. It's a language of a sub-culture that has made eternal teenagers of all who follow it. It's a sub-culture of integrity, rebellion, frustration, alienation, and the glue that set several generations free of unnatural societal self-suppression.”
