Bad Reputation

Joan Jett

Bad Reputation Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I don't give a damn 'bout my reputation
You're living in the past, it's a new generation
A girl can do what she wants to do
And that's what I'm gonna do

[Hook]
And I don't give a damn 'bout my bad reputation
Oh no (no no no no no no)
Not me (me me me me me me)

[Verse 2]
And I don't give a damn 'bout my reputation
Never said I wanted to improve my station
And I'm only doin' good when I'm havin' fun
And I don't have to please no one

[Hook]
And I don't give a damn 'bout my bad reputation
Oh no (no no no no no no)
Not me (me me me me me me)
Oh no (no no no no no no)
Not me (me me me me me me)

[Verse 3]
I don't give a damn 'bout my reputation
Never been afraid of any deviation
And I don't really care if you think I'm strange
I ain't gonna change

[Hook]
And I'm never gonna care 'bout my bad reputation
Oh no (no no no no no no)
Not me (me me me me me me)
Oh no (no no no no no no)
Not me (me me me me me me)
Pedal, boys!

[Verse 4]
And I don't give a damn 'bout my reputation
The world's in trouble, there's no communication
And everyone can say what they wanna to say
It never gets better, anyway

[Hook]
So why should I care about a bad reputation anyway?
Oh no (no no no no no no)
Not me (me me me me me me)
Oh no (no no no no no no)
Not me (me me me me me me)

[Verse 5]
I don't give a damn 'bout my bad reputation
You're living in the past, it's a new generation
And I only feel good when I got no pain
And that's how I'm gonna stay

[Hook]
And I don't give a damn 'bout my bad reputation
Oh no (no no no no no no)
Not me (me me me me me me)
Oh no (no no no no no no)
Not me (me me me me me me)
Not me (no no no no no no)
Not me

About “Bad Reputation”

“Bad Reputation” was first released by Joan Jett during her short solo career, on her debut album of the same name in 1980. Since then, the song has been included on multiple Joan Jett & The Blackhearts compilation albums.

It was named the 29th best rock song in 2009 by VH1, making it the highest ranking song on the list by a female artist.

The song is among the most popular of Joan Jett’s and has been used in a number of popular media, including television shows Freaks and Geeks and Jessica Jones, movies 10 Things I Hate About You, Shrek, Kick-Ass, Easy A, and The DUFF, video game Rock Band 2, the current theme of WWE Superstar Ronda Rousey, and many others.

The music video is a black and white silent film style reenactment of record labels rejecting Joan’s solo album, and the success of her band’s cover of I Love Rock N' Roll.
