Foo Fighters - Bad Reputation Lyrics

You got a bad reputation
That's the word out on the town
It gives a certain fascination
But it can only bring you down

You better turn yourself around
Turn yourself around
Turn it upside down
Turn yourself around

You had bad breaks well that's tough luck
You play too hard too much rough stuff
You're too sly so cold
That bad reputation has made you old

Turn yourself around
Turn yourself around
Turn it upside down
Turn yourself around

You better turn yourself around
Turn yourself around
Turn it upside down
Turn yourself around

  6. Dreem Walker

    I can say "I don't give a damn about .. Foo Fighters" .. BUT Joan Jet really got them to shape up into being bearable to listen to.

  7. mark jasinski

  8. Inc Inc

    Wow Joan looks amazing!! Whoever was doing the sound levels on the mics needs a kick up the ass.

  9. Bite My Krank

    Two badly out of tune and time songs and back to the nursing home Joan....easiest $50 you'll make this week.

  10. Totally not a famous person with a fake name

    shit mix to boot

  11. Totally not a famous person with a fake name

    what he should say is " if it wasn't for my parents buying me a stereo and a guitar and not really giving a fuck after that ...

  12. Tim Keeley

    Yeah, she’s great. Rock icon and all that. But she’s 61 and singing about taking home 17 year old children. A bit creepy

  13. reev64

    Fucking great to Dave play along side of Joan Jett. She's one solid fuckin Rocker! Cheers from Phelpston, Ontario Canada!!

  14. Thierry .GUERIN

    Ah ah ah !! Bad reputation...; tout est pompé sur les Ramones !!!

  15. Vagenstein

    Where are her tits? Poor lesbian Joan has boobs like two eggs sunny side up lol

  16. MaryBeth Dueno

    Love that metallic blue guitar. Seen both Joan Jett and Foo Fighters at different times but both were great.

    Totally not a famous person with a fake name

    dave grohl isn't fit to wash out her used tampons

    Its Gibson 's "Pelham Blue".. came mostly on the low budget Melody Makers which is why a 1960's era "Standard" SG, ES, etc in PB costs about 3xs what the other colors will cost ya...when the Nitro-Cellulose lacquer ages, it turns a creamy yellow.... that "clear" yellow over the blue makes an awesome! greenish-blue that is highly coveted among vintage guitar dealers and collectors. You can actually buy it that way now from the custom shop or buy some "Vintage Amber" and "Aged Clear " from Stew Mac and create the look yourself.. Custom shop does a great job at getting it close, but nothing really does it like it actually aging out that way- of coarse it'll take 30 years for it to do it naturally.. But you can now buy any Gibson in Pelham Blue. Hope the info helps!

  66. Jay Snawder

    WOW, won't pay to see you live, (puking) I see why he did it now.

  67. Jay Snawder

    I would MUCH rather her sing at least her song DAVE, you FUCKED it up. love your music, but DUDE.... can someone else have a moment?

  68. Jay Snawder

    What's up with the fucking mouth? could you not get ur point across without the fucking language? Don' forget to thank Kurt.... how soon you for forget!

  69. Eric Peacock

    Joan is Awesome. Dave could chill with all the F curses. Nice to see FF paying tribute to a Rock & Roll Queen.

    Roley Marx

    I agree with you about leaving the F bombs out.

    Eric Peacock

    @Roley Marx - Grohl seems like a decent guy mind you, and he was twice very successful. And he respects his Rock n Roll elders. But as a rule, when people cuss so much, they don't have much to say. The Departed. Fantastic Movie. But I only gave it 3.5 Stars, instead of 4, because of 347 f curses.

  70. Love em both.. wish they picked a different tune. This doesn't showcase the talent

  71. Al O. Veera

    Such an epic performance and people wasting it by holding fucking phones.

  72. J Johnston

    Tag Me Tag Me

  73. brutusbn76

    also doing the old thing where they sing behind the beat and jazzy improvise the timing of the lyrics. NO THANKS. also foo fighters is by definition the gayest thing of all time

  74. brutusbn76

    really awful sound

  75. Steve Flam

    So Joan Jett is in the Hall of Fame but Peter Frampton is not? Wow , no comment to add tom this disgrace. Frampton is definitely a much better guitarist and musician than she is. Are people dumb or just ignorant?

  76. Brendan McGlinchey

    Is there any musician who's ass Grohl won't kiss ?

  77. Shirley-lee Bell

    Joan Jett ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  78. kai rocxsy hallseth

    Bullshit..the best forever😘😘💀💀💋💋💋🙉🙉🙉

  79. pino iaconis

    Dave is an icon of rock ,succeeded with nirvana went on to be a Foo Fighter.respect.

  80. Glenn Garofano


  81. Pedro Gallardo

    porque Joan fala em portugues ?

    Astria Ferrão

    Pedro Gallardo o show foi o Lollapalooza 2012 em São Paulo!🥰

  82. Ricardo Cespedes

    tremendos chamacones con la sra joan jett

  83. element 115


  84. dave griego

    I'm guessing the bass player is an Indica man.. Takes one to know one... Any Indica fans out there?? Joan sez "Can you sing it"? I love In-Da-Kaa..

  85. Rex M

    I remember "taping" this song off the TV by holding the tape deck in fornt of the TV speaker and pressing RECORD. We had to make do and be creative cause we had nothing else.

  86. Anthony Giacomozzi

    I still love you Miss Jett

  87. Reginal carrar

    Joan jet was my first star crush, and still is today! So freak'n bad ass!!!

  88. Serbie Dog

    The dude running the audio board should be fired immediately.

  89. Guitar Man

    Dave Grohl is a foul mouthed ignoramus.

  90. NoobAlike

    Her voice aged really well

  91. John o'neill

    I think lizzy hale is trying to look like joan these days

    Kyle Runkle

    John o'neill maybe but lizzy Hale is the modern day Joan Jett! So good

  92. Marleystrummer
