The title of "Queen of Rock and Roll" is usually given to the devil-may-care rocker Joan Jett. The all-American badass made waves as the lead singer of Joan Jett & the Blackhearts with one of the most well-known hits of all time, "I Love Rock 'n' Roll." The multi-platinum star was also a founding member of The Runaways and pursued a solo career before and after her time with the Blackhearts. Even now, she's still one of the toughest chicks that the music industry has ever witnessed.
