CLEVELAND, OH - APRIL 18: Inductee Joan Jett of Joan Jett and The Blackhearts performs onstage during the 30th Annual Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony at Public Hall on April 18, 2015 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Joan Jett celebrates a birthday today (September 22), and while she turns 59, her swagger and cool is simply ageless.

If you’re looking for proof, just take a look back at this awesome performance from when she was enshrined in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of the 2015 induction class.  This writer’s particular favorite song from the marathon performance was of “Cherry Bomb,” which was originally recorded by Jett’s first band The Runaways.

Hopefully, we’ll get to see that ground-breaking girl group inducted into the Rock Hall.
