Subscribe to KOOL 101.7 on

Joan Jett kicked off the 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony tonight with an energetic three-song set featuring guest appearances by Dave Grohl and pop sensation Miley Cyrus.

Jett, who along with her band the Blackhearts will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Cyrus later this evening, began with a fierce rendition of her 1980 hit “Bad Reputation.” Original Blackhearts bassist Gary Ryan and Grohl then joined her for a run through “Cherry Bomb,” a 1976 anthem from Jett’s former band the Runaways.

The last song was Jett’s cover of “Crimson and Clover,” with controversial pop star du jour Cyrus and the song’s original author and performer, Tommy James, joining Jett in setting the bar high for the evening’s remaining performers. Impressively, she did so without playing the Blackhearts’ biggest hit, a famous 1981 cover of the Arrows’ “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll.”

Ringo Starr, Stevie Ray Vaughan and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band are also scheduled to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Fame at tonight’s event.
