Music Monday #4: Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. Oh, 1992. Were you really twenty years ago?

I've decided to indulge myself every fourth Monday with a song associated with a specific memory. This one is dedicated to four teenage girls wearing their cheerleader outfits, riding in a beat-up Ford pickup truck with all the windows down, screaming this at the tops of their lungs on the way to a(n American) football match in 1992. I sang with pure, unrestrained joy and I meant every word in the chorus with all my heart. And I still do.
