    It was an ok performance. Taylor’s voice doesn’t really fit the song and she screwed up the instrumental back into the prechorus.

    • Jesse Sikora

      Although she did screw up a few times I thought her voice suited the song great actually.

  • Noelle

    This was absolutely the best performance of the night! Even with all the difficulties, Taylor’s voice kicked ass! I hope they record this together and go on tour! Golden Gods always bring the greatest performances!

    • Steve Williams

      If that’s was the best- I would have hated to of seen the worst

  • Duy

    Taylor and Joan are so great !! 😀 Love this perfomance !!!

  • Steve Williams

    What a train wreck- TM is an overrated giraffe trying to be a rock star- sorry but she’s awkward with no stage presence and no vocal range. I think she’s finding out looks can only take you so far- you NEED TALENT to make it up the ladder ^

    • Richie

      No stage presence? Clearly you have never been to a TPR show, so you really have no right to judge until you have been. Taylor is a real rock star loaded with talent. and as far as “making it up the ladder”…the album has hit #1 on various charts and #5 on the Billboard 200, the 2 videos have both hit # 1 on various charts, and Heaven Knows has hit # 1 on the mainstream rock chart as well as others…so I think you better do some research and know what you are talking about before you decide to run your mouth, because you’ve only made yourself look like a lame, pathetic hater who is trying to justify their hate by making shit up.

      • Steve Williams

        I don’t have to go to a show- the video speaks volumes. her obvious satanic connotations with no musical talent means she has sold her soul to the devil for fame
        Lzzy Hale, Doro, Lita ford, Pat Benatar Ann Wilson. Nancy Wilson= real talent without selling out

        • Richie

          Really? Sold her soul to the devil? Do you really believe that? Because if you do, then you are a bigger idiot than I first thought. You can’t actually sell your soul to the devil, thats just an expression, or a pathetic excuse someone uses to justify their hate.

          As for you passing judgement after seeing ONE video, well, that in itself completely discredits ANY legit argument you may of had(which was little to none to begin with). Taylor has not sold out…she has always been this way, music has ALWAYS been her passion, and she is extremely talented. Nothing you can say will prove otherwise so you may as well quit now.

          • Steve Williams

            How many videos do you need. I’ve seen several including interviews. She is a lost soul
            probably like yours. HER POINTS OF VIEW AND LYRICS are satanic in nature. occultic connotations etc.are definitely not Christian. to the contrary. I myself am a heavy metal guitarist for many years, so I know the music scene and what is and what isn’t. In the heaven knows video she pays and instructs little kids to swear at God. She also grabs her private parts in front of kids. C’mon now don’t you agree that’s not right.??She says in her own words she is going to Hell I don’t like people to mess with little kids. Male or female

          • Richie

            There is NOTHING satanic about her or her music. You need to open your mind and really think about stuff. Just because its not Christian does not make it satanic. For one, she is an atheist. Do u know what that is, what it means? If u do, then u know she can not be satanic. In the Heaven Knows video, she is NOT teaching kids to swear at God. again, OPEN YOUR MIND. She is teaching them to stand up against conformity, saving them from the system. Just because YOU are a guitarist does not make you an expert about anyone else. I am a bass player, but I don’t claim to be an expert, because I know that playing bass does not make me one. Sure, I know a lot about the music scene, but there is also a lot that I don’t know. And I keep an open mind. Something u obviously need to learn to do.

          • Steve Williams

            Are you blind ?? can’t you see the satanic images in her videos? She wears satanic tanktops. If you don’t serve God you are serving Satan. You must not be able to comprehend that fact. Her lyrics are satanic/ Godless- Blasphemy against God which is satanic. I was referencing being heavy metal guitarist that doesn’t mean you have to be satanic, not that I know everything
            Being atheist is satanic. The Bible says you can’t serve both. If you are against God you are satanic. You have a lot to learn.

          • Kingdom17

            Or ya know its just imagery, and she serves neither? You know the bible also says that you can’t wear mixed fabrics, you can’t eat pork, and it also justifies rape, murder and slavery under certain conditions. Oh but wait that’s the old testament that doesn’t count, well I guess that includes Genesis, and the prophecies about Jesus which seems rather important to the whole Christian religion. But this isn’t even your job to persecute others with different beliefs, no that is God’s, is it not?

            Matthew 5:43-45 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

            He will deal with these evil evil atheists won’t he now? But aren’t you also supposed to love your neighbor even if they are wicked, or sinful as they need that love to come to God?

            Mark 12:31 “The second is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

            But who cares right? Let’s just use the Bible and a religion that supposedly teaches love and tolerance to attack and degrade people.

          • Steve Williams

            If my neighbor brakes into my house with a gun in the middle of the night should I run over to him and give him a kiss and tell him I love him??
            You try to quote Bible scripture and don’t have a clue what they mean. As far as her being a Satanist- if an apple looks like an apple, feels like an apple and tastes like an apple it’s PROBABLY an APPLE. She proudly wears clothing with satanic imagery, promotes and displays satanic images. her lyrics proclaim “sh’e’s going to HELL and explains her reasons why??Things in the old testament was because we were ‘UNDER the LAW” New testament we are under grace no sacrifices because Jesus was the sacrifice and died for humanities sins. I wish Taylor Momsen would repent and not go to hell. God said he wishes that NONE shall perish and as a Christian I don’t want her to go to hell. I’m trying to warn others of her dangerous behavior and not to follow her example. She needs to change for her own self and to be a good Godly example

          • Keith Gardner

            Sir are you a good godly example? You are on here passing judgement on people. Guess what? You don’t have the authority to do that. I also believe that you are suppose to promote God in everything you do and what you watch and listen to. Guess what? Joan Jett is not promoting God in any of her songs so I guess that makes you a hypocrite.Better stop listening to anything that doesn’t promote God or you’re going to hell also.People like you make me sick. Think you can do what ever and sit in the amen pew on Sundays and it’s ok. You’re example is the exact reason I stopped going to church. Damn pretenders!! Have any problems with this I’m sure we can discuss it

          • Steve Williams

            Well I not claiming I’m going to hell like Taylor Momsen. And yes you are supposed to set an example how you live that you are a follower of Jesus Christ. The Bible instructs to do so. I’m not perfect and am a sinner. But I am forgiven through Jesus Christ’s blood he shed on the cross. Do you have a problem with that ?? Read John 3:16 , my friend

        • flkj

          BAHAHA, Pat Benatar’s career was based on being a sellout. Fucking every famous rock female “Sold out” the fucking moment they were signed. You should really look into some rock and roll history before you say that they weren’t sell outs.

          • Steve Williams

            I was talking in the context of religion, not monetary= so why don’t you but the hell out of the conversation

  • Rockchick

    Taylor has no business being on the same stage as the iconic Joan Jett. Another wealthy actress who hasn’t paid her dues trying to make it as a singer.
    By the reaction of the crowd, I think it’s obvious Taylor and her band of middle aged “musicians” (The Pretty Reckless) just don’t appeal to a real rock audience. One can only hope she and her band disappear soon.

    • Pedro Miguel

      I don’t really get why you say she hasn’t make it as a singer… You might not like her songs or her band of “middle aged” (that was just WTF?!) but she has talent and she is much more rock and roll than most “rock” bands from nowadays. She doesn’t use effects on her voice, she WRITES HER OWN SONGS, actually uses instruments (something that most bands are forgetting about), she’s awesome, don’t know why you can’t see that, just because she was an actress doesn’t mean she isn’t a full rock chick 😉

    • XXXX

      She is really talented girl. If you don’t like her, it’s fine, but keep your bad opinion for yourself. What to say, haters gonna hate.. This performance is awesomee, Taylor’s voice is fuckin’ amazing and she is not actress, she is a singer, she couldn’t make a rock album with her 6 years, so ’cause of that she was actress in the begining, but now, now she is a real rock’n’roll singer, so, shhhh, and keep your opinion for yourself, or just share it with other haters. ;3

  • Leo

    It’s alright! In my opinion the crowed were just really boring… Joan and Taylor are both great but it was almost like no one in the crowed knew who they were.

  • JoeRocks

    Taylor Momsen and The Pretty Reckless rock. Listen to their 2 albums. Going To Hell kicks ass. I saw them play live in Ft. Lauderdale last year and the crowd loved them. She was good with Joan Jett here. Billy Gibbons added nothing to the performance and was a distraction if anything…

  • poopnuggetsmcgee

    Did Taylor even practice with them?

  • alfred


  • Steve Williams

    Taylor Momsen is a SICKO- she makes music videos where she portrays acts of flashing her nude body to minor children and gropes her private parts in front of kids. She should be arrested and prosecuted.

  • Ryan Riggleman

    All of you preachers can go thump a bible…..Taylor rocks….saw TPR with FFDP last week….great show

    • lisa

      don’t insult preachers. respect other beliefs, would you?

  • Knut Holt

    Everything dizzing.
