“I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll ” is a rock song written in 1975 by Alan Merrill and Jake Hooker of Arrows, who recorded the first released version. The song was later made famous by the hit version by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts in 1982. Alan Merrill has been playing the song recently live in England, Europe, Japan and most often in his home town New York City.The song was originally recorded and released by Arrows in 1975 on RAK Records, with lead vocals by Alan Merrill and produced by Mickie Most. In an interview with Songfacts, Merrill said he wrote it as “a knee-jerk response to The Rolling Stones ‘ ‘ It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll (But I Like It) ‘.” This version was first released as a B-side, but was soon re-recorded and flipped to A-side status on a subsequent pressing of the record. Although not a chart hit in its original version as a result of nonexistent promotion by the band’s label, the song has come to worldwide prominence due to very successful cover versions. The song served the band Arrows very well in 1975 though. After they did their one and only TV appearance in 1975 with “I Love Rock N Roll” on the Muriel Young produced show “45,” Ms. Young offered the Arrows their own weekly television series starting in March 1976. They got the weekly TV series based on their performance of “I Love Rock N Roll.” The Arrows TV show was where Joan Jett became aware of the song while she was on tour with her band the Runaways in England in 1976 and she saw the group perform the song on their weekly broadcast show.
