JOAN JETT/LESLEY GORE CONNECTION
From the press kit for BAD REPUTATION: "She's perfected an "if-you-don't-wanna-fuck-me-fuck-off" stance that makes good on all the Runaways' potential for glittery sexual threat. The first song she recorded for the album, with ex-Sex Pistols Steve Jones and Paul Cook, was Lesley Gore's "You Don't Own Me," which includes its own litmus test for legitimacy--if you can cover Gore's protofeminist anthem without coming off as a pretentious spokesperson, you've got a right to its power."
