The Blackhearts were not inducted to the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame today, but we Jettheads should still be proud! We got them on the official fan ballot. Our vote counted, and our voices were heard – the entire world knows that we want Joan Jett and the Blackhearts into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!
The 2013 Rock Hall inductees are:
· Albert King
· Randy Newman
· Public Enemy
· Donna Summer
Ahmet Ertegun (non performer) Award:
· Lou Adler
· Quincy Jones
Congratulations to all inductees, and congratulations to Joan Jett and The Blackhearts for being nominated two years in a row!
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will hold a press conference tomorrow, December 11, at 2:00 PM EST/11:00 AM PST, to announce the 5 or 6 artists that will be inducted into the 2013 Rock Hall. Follow me on Twitter (@JJElektric) to find out if Joan and the Blackhearts will be one of them. (I will tweet it before I will be able to come home and blog about it.)
You voted well, Jettheads! We got The Blackhearts onto the OFFICIAL fan ballot. WE DID IT!
Michael Norman (@MichaelNormanPD), the Online Arts & Entertainment Editor for the Plain Dealer, also gets a Rock Hall vote, and he voted for Joan too!
Joan Jett and the Blackhearts: “My guilty-pleasure pick. Rocked harder than many men in the hall with a great ability to blend pop sensibilities with a rock attitude.”

Remember, these are only two votes out of hundreds, so it is not a predictor on whether The Blackhearts will actually get in. But think positive thoughts!
