Cover versions: Arrows meet Joan Jett

BBC Music has launched a poll to find the greatest cover version of all time. But many people do not know that some of the most famous songs in pop history were covers.

Joan Jett came upon her biggest hit I Love Rock 'N' Roll while watching power-pop trio Arrows perform the track on their weekly ITV music show in 1976. Arrows' version failed to chart, but Jett took it to number four in the UK in 1982.
