Sure everyone knows the title track from Joan Jett & The Blackhearts’ 1981 release I Love Rock N’ Roll, but did you know they also recorded this cover? Jett would record a live version with Evil Stig 14 years later as well.

My Morning Jacket: It doesn’t seem like it has already been three years since My Morning Jacket went “Under The Sea” for two prom-themed shows at the 40 Watt Club in Athens, GA – but I guess it was.
