Joan Jett has filed a cease and desist letter to the president and CEO of SeaWorld in Florida after learning her infamous "I Love Rock 'n' Roll" anthem is part of Seaworld's Shamu Rocks show.
Jett wrote: "I was surprised and upset to see on YouTube that SeaWorld used I Love Rock 'n' Roll as the opening music for its cruel and abusive 'Shamu Rocks' show. I'm among the millions who saw Blackfish and am sickened that my music was blasted without my permission at sound-sensitive marine mammals."
Jett will be starring in (and is the executive producer of) Undateable John, a romantic comedy about a slacker surf instructor who meets a troubled love interest in an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. The film stars Daryl Hannah, Tom Arnold and Shannen Doherty. A release date has not been published yet.
Jett will be a guest on The Queen Latifah Show this week, with an episode air date of February 17, 2014. In the meantime, we invite you to browse some of the best Joan Jett fan art on etsy:
