Music Video of the Day: I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll, covered by Britney Spears (2001, dir by Chris Applebaum)


It’s Britney!

This video was filmed at the Inn, which is a bar in Long Island.  The video features Britney performing with her then-backing band.  It also features a speaker that appears to be on the verge of exploding and a motorcycle.  To be honest, if I was performing this song, I would probably want a motorcycle on stage with me too.  This is a song that just makes you want to ride a motorcycle.

(Seriously, I’ve always had like a major weakness for motorcycles.  It’s not so much that I like to ride them as much as I just like to lean up against them.)

I can remember that, when this cover was first released, a lot of people complained that it wasn’t as good as the previous versions and Britney also got a lot of criticism for saying that she had been inspired by Pat Benatar’s cover when the cover was actually performed by Joan Jett.  Myself, I like Britney’s cover.  It’s fun to dance too and Britney always seemed like she was happy when she was performing it.  So, the haters can just shut up as far as I’m concerned.

Free Britney!

Enjoy!
