This is a rock song from 1975. That is the year it’s written and recorded by the Arrows. The song was recorded as a reaction the a song by the Rolling Stones, namely It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll (But I Like It). Joan Jett saw them perform on television, and thought it would be a good song to cover. Firstly she covered it with two old Sex Pistols, later with the Blackhearts. This version, from 1981, reached number 1 in the US and number 4 in the UK. Enjoy
