In the new Joan Jett documentary, Bad Reputation, the ex-Runaway wears a Cheap Trick t-shirt featuring the typography from their 1977 debut. Could anyone have predicted they’d be co-headlining a bill 41 years later? Probably not, but the parallels are rife, like their associations with Epic Records, songwriter-to-the-stars Diane Warren, and less commercial entities like Kathleen Hanna, who has cowritten several Jett songs, and Steve Albini, who cowrote one for Cheap Trick (Albini’s band, Big Black, also covered “He’s a Whore”). With the death of Lemmy, few acts can unite the punks and the rockers quite like these two.
