Jett has released eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles, including “Cherry Bomb,” “Bad Reputation,” “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,” “I Hate Myself For Loving You” and “Crimson and Clover.”
She broke into the music scene in 1975 as a founding member of the pioneering all-girl teenage punk band The Runaways, which released five albums and became a worldwide hit before disbanding in 1979. “The Runaways” told the band’s story, with A-lister Kristen Stewart portraying Jett.
