Joan Jett – Bad Reputation lyrics

[Verse 1]
I don't give a damn 'bout my reputation
You're living in the past, it's a new generation
A girl can do what she wants to do and that's what I'm gonna do

[Hook]
An' I don't give a damn 'bout my bad reputation
Oh no, not me

[Verse 2]
An' I don't give a damn 'bout my reputation
Never said I wanted to improve my station
An' I'm only doin' good when I'm havin' fun
An' I don't have to please no one

[Hook]
An' I don't give a damn 'bout my bad reputation
Oh no, not me, oh no, not me

[Verse 3]
I don't give a damn 'bout my reputation
I've never been afraid of any deviation
An' I don't really care if you think I'm strange
I ain't gonna change

[Hook]
An' I'm never gonna care 'bout my bad reputation
Oh no, not me, oh no, not me
Pedal, boys!

[Verse 4]
An' I don't give a damn 'bout my reputation
The world's in trouble, there's no communication
An' everyone can say what they wanna to say
It never gets better, anyway

[Hook]
So why should I care about a bad reputation anyway?
Oh no, not me, oh no, not me

[Verse 5]
I don't give a damn 'bout my bad reputation
You're living in the past, it's a new generation
An' I only feel good when I got no pain
An' that's how I'm gonna stay

[Hook]
An' I don't give a damn 'bout my bad reputation
Oh no, not me, oh no, not me
Not me, not me

    Not just old people I get that it hits older generations harder because they where raised to belive that girls have to be "sugar and spice and everything nice" but if you look around you it's not just old people who think "women should learn their place" but a vast majority of the people in day to day life and in power today even other countries and so I believe this song is to every body who thinks anyone be it man or female has to be in there set spot and do what is expected of them regardless of what they are feeling or what they think is expected but do what the f*k makes them happy
    "I only feel happy when there is no pain and I don't give a damn about my BAD REPUTATION!"
