Joan Jett in Transgendered Duet

Joan Jett has balls. In the ’70s, she (of course) led the first all-teenage-girl hard rocking band the Runaways. She blew up the charts in the ’80s by slinging a guitar, not writhing on the floor. And in the ’90s, she supported the punk feminist movement (aka Riot Grrrl) more than any other single rock star. Now she’s aligning herself with transgender ass-kicker Tom Gabel, aka Laura Jane Grace. She performed the Replacements’ “Androgynous” with Gabel’s band Against Me! in New York, see video below. I love the way their voices blend together, and the way they shout, “See no evil at all!”
