If you read Totally Covered, you know the Joan Jett version(s) of this song is(are) a() cover(s).
The Arrows wrote and performed this song in 1975. This creepy, creepy song about picking up an underage girl ended up getting them a recurring TV gig on their own eponymous show. Ah, the 70s. It was on that TV show that Joan Jett saw the band perform the song - and her recordings became history.
The song is a classic because of what Joan Jett did, and despite the creepy, creepy subject matter, I have come to appreciate this version.
