"I Love Rock 'n Roll" by Joan Jett.

OK, more 80's: This Merrill/Hooker rock anthem was 1st recorded by The Arrows in '75. A young Philly native saw them in England while touring with her 1st band, The Runaways. She recorded her 1st version in '79 with Sex Pistols S. Jones and P. Cook. She re-recorded it in '81 with her own band, spending 7 weeks at #1 and RIAA Certified Platinum. The orig. video was retooled with Mike Myers and Dana Carvey for "Wayne's World 2". Song? Artist?

Yesterday's answer: "Needles and Pins" by The Searchers. Jingle-jangle at its best!
