i don't know some of these. and i didn't know "androgynous" was a single (or a video). but that's a lot of great singles.

tipsy mothra, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 05:50 (fourteen years ago) link

(oops i didn't look close that's not a real video. but the wikipedia list sez it was a real single, so close enough.)

tipsy mothra, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 05:52 (fourteen years ago) link

Crimson and Clover, over and over.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 05:53 (fourteen years ago) link

yeah i'm guessing it's mostly "bad reputation" vs. "crimson & clover." with some "i love rock 'n' roll" outliers, plus assorted wild cards. i could almost go "victim of circumstance."

tipsy mothra, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 05:54 (fourteen years ago) link

but who'm i kidding, her "crimson & clover" is like one of my 10 favorite songs of all time.

tipsy mothra, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 05:54 (fourteen years ago) link

She has singles??!?!?!!

Tape Store, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 05:55 (fourteen years ago) link

I'm going to bat for her hair metal days: "I Hate Myself.." - but my love for Freaks & Geeks really makes me want to vote for "Bad Reputation."

Pillbox, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 06:00 (fourteen years ago) link

(nb: the "cherry bomb" on the list is her re-recording, not the runaways' version. which is still totally great and all, just noting for the record.)

tipsy mothra, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 06:02 (fourteen years ago) link

Big Orioles fan.

Guayaquil (eephus!), Tuesday, 11 December 2007 06:04 (fourteen years ago) link

i could just pretty much watch this all night.

such a badass.

tipsy mothra, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 06:31 (fourteen years ago) link

Oh,hmm...just read this on the Joan Jett wiki: "Jett is to executive produce the 2009 upcoming film Neon Angels, which chronicles the Runaways' career. Floria Sigismondi, who has also directed videos for Marilyn Manson, the White Stripes and David Bowie, is to write and direct."

I'll watch that.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 08:18 (fourteen years ago) link

Didn't she get Lungfish to open for her on some shows? She's a huge Fugazi fan, apparently.

Savannah Smiles, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 09:46 (fourteen years ago) link

i could almost go "victim of circumstance."

DO IT!

Worth it almost for the first line alone...

rogermexico., Tuesday, 11 December 2007 09:54 (fourteen years ago) link

Neither do I but "I Love Rock'n'Roll" is OK voting for, I guess.

Geir Hongro, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 12:15 (fourteen years ago) link

But Geir she didn't write that song! Oh noes.

Colonel Poo, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 12:18 (fourteen years ago) link

her "crimson & clover"Bad Reputation is like one of my 10 favorite songs of all time.

Colonel Poo, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 12:18 (fourteen years ago) link

Yeah, and it now conjurs the opening credits of "Freaks and Geeks" for me as well, which only sweetens the deal.

Savannah Smiles, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 12:28 (fourteen years ago) link

I really liked her cover of the Gits' "Second Skin" (under the name EVIL STIG), but -- y'know, that's not here. So I'm going with "Bad Reputation," `cos it rocks.

Alex in NYC, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 13:52 (fourteen years ago) link

'bad reputation' is yoga flame for all time.

That one guy that hit it and quit it, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 15:41 (fourteen years ago) link

Watching her videos on youtube give me a warm feeeling, if you know what I mean. Sexy as all hell get out.

Bill Magill, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 17:40 (fourteen years ago) link

EVIL STIG album severely underrrated

Shakey Mo Collier, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 17:42 (fourteen years ago) link

"I Hate Myself...," but I love lots of these, especially "Light of Day."

Alfred, Lord Sotosyn, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 17:43 (fourteen years ago) link

yeah evil stig is a solid rock record, and a pretty cool move too.

"light of day" is excellent. (and she's good in the movie.)

tipsy mothra, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:32 (fourteen years ago) link

forgot how much i like this one.

tipsy mothra, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:44 (fourteen years ago) link

Wow, not much of a body of work is it?

dally, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:45 (fourteen years ago) link

pssh. greatest cover artist of the last 30 years.

tipsy mothra, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:56 (fourteen years ago) link

(that could be an exaggeration. but her taste is unfuckwithable.)

tipsy mothra, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:57 (fourteen years ago) link

I love her "Roadrunner." Obviously a very different beast than Richman's, but I don't think the polish hurts it any. The backing vox are ace.

Doctor Casino, Wednesday, 12 December 2007 07:16 (fourteen years ago) link

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

ILX System, Thursday, 13 December 2007 00:01 (fourteen years ago) link

"Cherry Bomb", which I like even more than the Runaways' original (wasn't real crazy about Cherie Currie's Mae West-inflection.)

"Fake Friends", "C&C", "Bad Reputation" all pretty great too.

Myonga Vön Bontee, Thursday, 13 December 2007 02:55 (fourteen years ago) link

DO YA WANNA TOUCH

YEAH

DO YA WANNA TOUCH

YEAH

she does some kind of key modulation to the last chorus in that tune that just slays me.

Freaks and Geeks fans ftw.

"my baby talks like a pancake"

mark s, Monday, 24 October 2011 15:15 (ten years ago) link

Fit To Be Tied is one of the greatest albums in rock history.

lumber up, limbaugh down (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 24 October 2011 15:19 (ten years ago) link

yup.

occupy the A train (difficult listening hour), Monday, 24 October 2011 15:19 (ten years ago) link

one of the best covers artists ever. "crimson and clover" + "do you wanna touch me" + "i love rock and roll", all totally repossessed.

occupy the A train (difficult listening hour), Monday, 24 October 2011 15:21 (ten years ago) link

"do you wanna touch me" has the simplest/best/lolest little talking-to-herself bit:

DO YOU WANNA TOUCH ME THERE
WHERE
THERE
YEAH

occupy the A train (difficult listening hour), Monday, 24 October 2011 15:24 (ten years ago) link

and "Everyday People"! and "Roadrunner"!

lumber up, limbaugh down (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 24 October 2011 15:25 (ten years ago) link

sometimes hers is my favorite roadrunner i know that's blasphemy and stuff, people look at me pityingly at parties

occupy the A train (difficult listening hour), Monday, 24 October 2011 15:26 (ten years ago) link

i'm glad "fake friends" got some votes.

occupy the A train (difficult listening hour), Monday, 24 October 2011 15:26 (ten years ago) link

have you heard "French Song"? It's sexy.

lumber up, limbaugh down (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 24 October 2011 15:27 (ten years ago) link

i haven't! i have heard the evil stig album, which is completely lovable; alex otm upthread about "second skin".

occupy the A train (difficult listening hour), Monday, 24 October 2011 15:31 (ten years ago) link

Not a single, but I used to put this on mixtapes all the time. Possibly my favorite Joann Jett cover (Wind, cowritten by Joey Levine and originally sung by Tony Orlando!)

Blue Doggie Sweater (Dan Peterson), Monday, 24 October 2011 19:57 (ten years ago) link

"Joann" Jett wtf...

Blue Doggie Sweater (Dan Peterson), Monday, 24 October 2011 19:57 (ten years ago) link

Evil Stig album is awesome!

unorthodox economic revenge (Shakey Mo Collier), Monday, 24 October 2011 19:58 (ten years ago) link

six years pass...

So many good songs!

morning wood truancy (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Saturday, 10 February 2018 02:46 (four years ago) link

four years pass...

Finally got a chance to see her live last night, she sounded great and the band rocked. She blew a few lyrics but it's probably hard to pay attention to which verse you're in the 8,000th time you sing "Crimson and Clover." Super fun show, and she still seems cooler than anyone I've ever met.

I was especially happy to hear "Light of Day" and "Androgynous," neither of which I was sure she'd do.

Her cover of "Season of the Witch" is pretty damn cool.

immodesty blaise (jimbeaux), Sunday, 18 September 2022 14:18 (two weeks ago) link

Can I just say what an inspired choice she's been the two or so times Nirvana "reunited?" She's cool, her voice is perfect, and she's one of the few substitute Cobains that no one would complain about.
