I love rock n’ roll…

On this day in 1982 Joan Jett and the Blackhearts’ cover of “I Love Rock n’ Roll” reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for the first of seven consecutive weeks.

Joan Jett (born Joan Marie Larkin) was a founding member of The Runaways before starting her own band, the Blackhearts.  Their first album together included the songs “I Love Rock n’ Roll”, “Crimson and Clover” and “Little Drummer Boy”

I can’t even count the number of times I played this song on the jukebox, but then again,
that's what the song is all about.

     The Historical Inebriant:  Rock and Roll

  • Cola 
  • Peppermint Schnapps 
  • Rum 
  • Vodka
I have no idea of the proportions on this drink since the directions are screwed up…
Isn’t that half the fun of drinking anyway?  You start with some crazy ass
ingredients and try to make it work but, usually by the time you think it starts
to taste good you’re completely shot anyways so who knows!
