Video: Joan Jett signing autographs outside at David Letterman

This was filmed after Joan’s performance of “Bad Reputation” with The Foo Fighters at David Letterman last year. I was going to schedule this for a future Video of the Week feature, but I didn’t want to wait. It’s too cool.

Two things strike me about this video:

  1. Joan walks with the same swagger she had in the beginning of the “I Love Rock-n-Roll” video, and
  2. Joan Jett fans are super CHILL. She is right in the crowd, and no one is screaming or passing out. Props!

Joan performed “Bad Reputation” with the Foo Fighters twice in November, once at their show at Madison Square Garden (that Dave talks about above), and again on Late Show with David Letterman:

Joan Jett and Foo Fighters to perform on Late Show with David Letterman: Nov. 15

As if the 40+ YouTube videos of Joan Jett performing with The Foo Fighters last night at Madison Square Garden wasn’t exciting enough, I just found out that Joan and the Foo will be on Late Show with David Letterman tomorrow, November 15th!

YAY!!!! Dave Letterman loves Joan. 🙂

Joan’s jam with The Foo Fighters last night made entertainment headlines! From billboard.com:

Last night at NYC’s Madison Square Garden, Dave Grohl and the boys not only played past midnight — a rarity given the venue’s typical 11 p.m. curfew — but during the encore, they brought out Joan Jett and Husker Du leader Bob Mould for rip-roaring covers of “Bad Reputation” and Tom Petty’s “Breakdown,” respectively.
