    After spending the '70s as part of the influential all-girl rock group the Runaways, singer/guitarist Joan Jett launched a solo career after the band's 1979 dissolution. Although her former band's music definitely had a punk edge, ("Cherry Bomb," anyone?), Jett's debut release, 1981's BAD REPUTATION, makes clear that she had finally embraced punk rock with open arms.
    Featuring a revolving door of punk notables, including Blondie's Frank Infante and Clem Burke, ex-Sex Pistols Paul Cook and Steve Jones, and the Ramones' Marky and Dee Dee, BAD REPUTATION rocks more ferociously and consistently than any other Joan Jett recording. Standouts include a cover of Gary Glitter's "Do You Wanna Touch Me? (Oh Yeah!)," which would become a big hit when re-released in '82, and the attitude-heavy title track.
