Joan Jett has been at the forefront of the female musician movement since the start and now she has a new music video where she also promotes female political candidates, showing her support for the women who ran for office in the 2018 midterms.
The iconic musical mastermind recorded hit songs like "Bad Reputation" and "I Love Rock 'n Roll" before making it to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015. Now, she has a documentary movie coming out based on her life called Bad Reputation and the song "Fresh Start" is part of that film.
With that in mind, a new music video was released to go along with the movie Bad Reputation. The song is "Fresh Start" and instead of using footage of herself, matching up with the autobiographical nature of the documentary film, Jett used it as a chance to honor the women who are trying to make a difference in the world politically.
The video uses mostly a split screen images and mixes archival footage of empowered women with current footage of volunteers, political candidates -- both new and veteran -- and feminists who have worked hard for equality. There are also worded messages on the screen, including one poignant one that says"if you aren't at the table, you are probably on the menu."
The movie Bad Reputation was released in September and the soundtrack for the documentary is also on sale.
