Joan Jett introduced a lot of great music Saturday night on ABC Australia’s Rage. She filmed her spots in an animal sanctuary while cuddling koalas, kangaroos, and face-eating lizards. 😯
One of our Australian Jetthead buddies, @DeadEnd_Kid, was kind enough to tape Joan’s intros and Jettigre was kind enough to upload them to YouTube. Thanks guys!

Joan Jett and the Blackhearts filmed an episode of Rage, for ABC Australia, which will air on Saturday, February 12, 2011 (Australia time). See the schedule here (JJBH are listed in the “Coming Up” section on the right): http://www.abc.net.au/rage/
Thanks to Dave in Australia, who emailed me the tip! For those of us not in Australia, Dave says that Rage is a music video show where guests sit on a couch, talk about and play their favorite music clips, and then play some of their own. From reading the show’s about page, I gather that it’s like MTV and the musical guests are the VJ’s. The show runs all night Friday and Saturday nights, but the only time they have hosts is on Saturday nights when the celebrities come in. Each celebrity host chooses around 40 videos to air, followed by their own videos, so it looks like Australian TV viewers will get several hours of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. 🙂 Check your local listings for the times.
Rage’s website publishes its playlists, so we will get to see a list of what Joan picks. I hope us non-Australians can see her intro bits on the internet someday too.
