I Love Rock N' Roll

I Love Rock N' Roll


by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts

Video & Audio

"I Love Rock N' Roll" Studio Version

This is what we're talking about.

"I Love Rock N' Roll" Music Video (1982)

This early MTV classic is a fuzzy black and white piece featuring Jett and the Blackhearts taking over a small bar with a jukebox.

"I Love Rock N' Roll" Live (1998)

Joan Jett and the Blackhearts rock a huge theater in New York.

Britney Spears cover of "I Love Rock N' Roll" (2002)

"She practically murdered this song," one YouTube comment reads.  You can judge this song's quality for yourself.

Miley Cyrus cover of "I Love Rock N' Roll" (2009)

Miley did the song while sitting on a floating motorcycle.

"I Love Rocky Road" (1983)

"I love Rocky Road/So won't you go and buy half a gallon baby," howls Weird Al Yankovic. This is a relatively harmless parody, imitating the song precisely but with sillier lyrics and an accordion standing in on the guitar riffs.
