Blackheart Records being 25 years old represents staying
power and the fact that we weren't able to get a record

our records if we wanted to be a band that had records
to give out to their fans.
- Joan Jett

So it was out of necessity that Blackheart was born.
I think it's great that now, 25 years later,

but are able to put out music by other bands.
That's really exciting for us.
- Joan Jett
