    Hot Topic might want to ask rock 'n' roll goddess Joan Jett to have a (black) heart.

    Jett is suing the music-inspired retailer for using her Blackheart trademark logo without her permission! According to VH1 Radio, the store apparently used her trademark on the panties and they are marketing the undies as "Lingerie for girls who rock and roll." That certainly makes it seem like JJ endorses the underwear!

    Jett is suing for trademark infringement. She is seeking unspecified damages and an injunction to prevent further sales of the lingerie items.

    Team Joan Jett or Team Hot Topic?
