So I know she isn't Christian (or I think... is she? Probably not...) but I'd like some advice. Any fans?

I've heard a couple of her hits - I Love Rock and Roll and Bad Reputation. But the other day I was in Vintage Vinyl (a record/CD store in U City) and they were playing one of her albums. It seemed pretty good.

Where should I start?

I kind of doubt she is a Christian, I thought I remember hearing that she was/is bi-sexual or maybe just gay.

I Love Rock & Roll is a good album to start off with.

I've never been a Joan Jett fan so the only songs I know by her is what I've heard on the radio.

Don't know how accurate it is but I googled "Is Joan Jett a Christian?" just for kicks and found this:

It sounds a bit like she relates to Christianity but is "spiritual" rather than a believer...

So she seems to practice a religious syncretism based in Christianity which evolves and changes as she learns and experiences life. Sounds groovy to me.

Sounds like she believes in some kind of God, and uses her own experiences to define that God.  Ok.....

I am a huge fan of Joan Jett and I have every single album she has put out on cd and vinyl...I recently saw her live and she kicked a$$..great show..here is her views on religion..I dig what she is saying here and tend to agree with her in alot of ways..  http://hollowverse.com/joan-jett/

Here is the way I would rank her albums...

Up Your Alley
Unvarnished
I Love Rock N Roll
Sinner
Glorious Results of a misspent youth
Bad Reputation
Album
Good Music
Pure and Simple
Naked
Notorious
The Hit List
Evil Stig

Her double cd greatest hits is also a very good place to start as is Fit To be Tied:anthology
I would also recommend the Runaways..her band with Lita Ford and Cherie Currie...The best of or greatest hits would be a great place to start there..

@ staybrite - I know. I'm not sure what to think but I see people who do the same thing at work. She seems like she may not even be sure exactly what she believes.

@Savage Amusement - thanks bro. I may start with a hits collection. I think that's what was playing at VV when I was there. Hate Myself for Loving You was the tune that caught my ear.

I dig Joan. Never was a huge fan (though I have 8 albums by her) just a casual fan of her better known works.

Don't know about her personal life, I just like her music.

I know a lot of people like that as well.

I saw her opening for the Who last year and was surprised at how good she was live.

Oh I agree, she is a kick-butt performer with tons of attitude and quite a bit of talent as well.
