The Runaways were a tremendously talented band.....that is, if your idea of talent is teenage girls shaking
their denim and leather clad asses.......or if your idea of talent is raccoon eyeliner clad, constantly sneering teenage wannabe nymphs......or if your idea of talent is teen girls getting all hot n sweaty and belting out lyrics like "Come and get it, boys"......in other words, they were MY KIND OF BAND!
Critically hated, but not nearly that bad, they Runaways were a lot of fun with their punk/metal racket and style-over substance personas.....we have four albums here for your approval....the self titled debut, with the infamous "Cherry Bomb"......."Live in Japan", where they were gigantic........"Queens of Noise", with it's cool title track, "Heartbeat", and "Playin' With Fire"......and "Waitin' On the Night", with the rocking "Little Sister", "Wasted", and (especially) "School Days".......they were MUCH more than a joke band (as they are kind of remembered), they were a fucking fab 1970's rock n roll band, and Lita Ford was a goddess.
Anyway, LOVE me some Runaways!
