The hit song "I Love Rock and Roll" by punk rocker Joan Jett stayed at number one on the Billboard charts for seven weeks back in 1982.

Now decades later, Jett and her band, the Blackhearts, are playing songs from her first album in a decade — a hard-rocking CD called Sinner — to a new generation of punk fans.
