Joan Jett and the Blackhearts are known for their hit song “I Love Rock ‘N Roll.”

But “I Love Rock ‘N Roll” is a cover by an English band the Arrows.

Joan Jett would go on to make the song famous, having it hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts. It would also be ranked by Rolling Stone as one of best 500 songs of all time, and be covered by everyone from Britney Spears to Miley Cyrus.

Yet no matter how many people think it belongs to Joan Jett, the song first belonged to the Arrows.
