The 2014 AP Awards will also bestow the AP Icon Award to the queen of punk rock, Joan Jett. As a songwriter, guitarist and singer, Jett has been a fearless ambassador of raw rock music for decades. Her catalog of hits, including the classic “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll” and the Runaways’ single “Cherry Bomb,” acts as a timeless playlist of rebellious anthems. Jett will be performing at the awards show, as will the Misfits, A Day To Remember, Fall Out Boy and many more. Korn, Ice-T & Coco, Machine Gun Kelly and Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace are all confirmed to make special appearances throughout the night.
Hot Topic is even getting in on the action–I guess everything is copacetic between Joan and the store since they both agreed to settle their lawsuit back in May.
