Hollywood Declares Joan Jett Day—Help Us Celebrate!

Written by PETA | August 1, 2013

Rock royalty—and true friend of animalsJoan Jett may have scored an early post-Runaways hit singing about her “bad reputation,” but among those of us who love her for her talent, her compassion, and her kick-ass ‘tude, Jett’s reputation couldn’t be better.

Wisely, the city of West Hollywood agrees, and it’s named August 1 “Joan Jett Day.” So if you love rock ‘n’ roll—or just love Joan for being a proud vegetarian ready to take on animal abusers ranging from Norwegian seal slaughterers to the CEO of McDonald’s—please pay your respects to this one-of-a-kind music-world groundbreaker by speaking up for animals on Joan Jett Day. (And every other day, too!)
