She attended William Howard Taft High School and was inspired to play music because of bands like Sparks and The Beatles.
Wiedlin and Belinda Carlisle formed the Go-Go's as a punk band called the Misfits in 1978, with Margot Olaverra on bass and Elissa Bello on drums. The Go-Go's pop punk sound emerged when Charlotte Caffey joined on lead guitar and keyboards, and Gina Schock replaced Bello on drums. After a 1980 tour of England, the band added Kathy Valentine on bass. They signed with IRS Records in April 1981.
In 1981, Wiedlin and Terry Hall of Fun Boy Three and the Specials co-wrote "Our Lips Are Sealed". The song peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at No. 20, where it remained until 1982. Hall also recorded the song with Fun Boy Three, hitting No. 7 in the U.K.
Wiedlin has released four solo albums: Jane Wiedlin in 1985, Fur in 1988, Tangled in 1990 and Kissproof World in 2000. From 1995 to 1998, she was also a member of the band FroSTed, which released one album, Cold, in 1996. In 2017, Wiedlin teamed up with the American-born Italian multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Pietro Straccia to form a new psychedelic/pop/electronic duo called Elettrodomestico. Their debut album, If You're a Boy or a Girl, was independently released on October 20, 2017.
After a series of reunions during the 1990s, Wiedlin, Carlisle, Caffey, Schock and Valentine reunited in 2000 to record God Bless the Go-Go's (originally titled Vision of Nowness), their first studio album in 17 years. The album's title and concept came from Wiedlin.
In 2000, Wiedlin sang in Frasier episode "They're Playing Our Song". In 2001, she had a regular role in MTV's Spyder Games, portraying the "ex-rock chick who runs the local coffee house" where the characters hang out.
In 2005, Wiedlin appeared as herself on the fourth season of VH1's The Surreal Life, in which she talked about her interest in BDSM.
Wiedlin contributed quotes to Girls Against Girls by author Bonnie Burton. In April 2009, Wiedlin was photographed as Bettie Page by Austin Young for the "Heaven Bound" art show. A number of her songs were to be featured in the 2018 debut of the Broadway musical ‘’Head Over Heels’’, with a story suggested by Philip Sidney's Arcadia set to the songs of the Go-Go's and Belinda Carlisle.
In 2010, the Go-Go's announced their "Happily Ever After" farewell tour. Although scheduled to begin in July, the tour was canceled because of ACL tears that Wiedlin had suffered in both knees after falling during a nighttime hike. She recovered and the band rescheduled the tour for 2011, no longer billing it as a farewell tour and changing the name to "Ladies Gone Wild."
In 2011, Wieldin played Tess in the independent movie I Want to Get Married. She portrayed a mathematics teacher in the 2016 horror film HoneyBee.
Wiedlin portrayed the bus station lady wearing a neck brace in Steve Balderson's 2005 surrealist crime drama film Firecracker, which Roger Ebert listed among the year's best films. She worked twice more with director Balderson, in Stuck! (2009), an homage to film noir women in prison dramas, and in the 2013 action film Culture Shock.
Wiedlin had what she called a "short but dramatic romance" with Terry Hall of the Specials during a 1980 British tour. Hall later sent her some lyrics prompted by their relationship, inspiring Wiedlin to write "Our Lips Are Sealed", a song on which Hall has co-writer credit. In the 2020 documentary The Go-Go's, bandmate Gina Schock stated than she and Wiedlin were "girlfriends" for a time until Jane broke up with her.
Currently, Jane Wiedlin is 64 years, 10 months and 6 days old. Jane Wiedlin will celebrate 65th birthday on a Saturday 20th of May 2023.
