Sad news overnight with Victoria’s first and only female Premier of Victoria, Joan Kirner, passing away at the age of 76.

Having been diagnosed with cancer of the oesophagus in 2013, Kirner leaves behind a strong legacy.

However, there is one moment in particular we will remember her for – the time she appeared on the ABC’s The Late Show in 1993.

Taking on Joan Jett’s I Love Rock n’ Roll, Kirner proved that could rock more than just the political world.

RIP Joan Kirner.
