Video: Miley Cyrus sings “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll”

Some of us Jettheads are still reeling from the Britney Spears ILRNR* debacle, so I don’t know how you guys will receive this. Personally, I think Miley sounds pretty good. I’m interested to see how her musical style changes as she grows up. I hope she rocks out more!

And thank goodness Miley at least knows who Joan Jett is. She told Matt Laurer on the Today Show in August that she listens to Joan often. Daddy Cyrus raised her right. šŸ™‚

  1. What Miley does know is that she’s covering an Arrows song. She even does their singer’s little asides between lines from the original Arrows version. Jett fans will never accept that I love rock n roll was written and recorded by the Arrows first. The fact is, if the Arrows hadn’t written I love rock n roll, and if Joan Jett hadn’t liked their version enough to cover it, we wouldn’t even be having this discussion.
    Without The Arrows the song would not exist. Period.
    Accept reality.

    • Hi Viv! Thanks for posting. I’ve seen your website before (http://www.iloverocknroll.org/), and I love your dedication to the history and evolution of the song. I do appreciate the original Arrow’s version, and I am very grateful that it was written and that Joan was able to do so much with it. I don’t think that I am the only Joan Jett fan that feels this way.

      All of the media coverage surrounding Miley’s performances of the song has focused on Joan, but that is not the fault of the Joan Jett fans. We don’t control the media. (If we did, Joan would be in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by now.) And to my knowledge, Miley herself has not discussed the Arrows in any interviews. If I’m wrong about that, let me know. It would be awesome if Miley could help to promote the history of the song.

      While I admire your dedication to the truth of the legacy of “I Love Rock-n-Roll,” I don’t think that making assumptions about people you don’t know and insulting the Jetthead community at large is a constructive way to get your point across. But regardless, I assure you that I have nothing but respect for you and the history of this much beloved song. Good luck with your future endeavors, and feel free to stop by again.

  2. Hi- It isn’t my website. I just referenced it. I don’t have a website, so I put that site in the column you have listed for “website”. I didn’t know what else to put there.
    The -I love rock n roll- website that I referenced is created by someone named Cerise. I think she’s English, which is where the Arrows were formed. They were a London based band, so that would make sense. Thanks for your reply, and I agree Joan Jett should be in the rock n roll hall of fame. She’s great.
    Viv
