Joan Jett Licensed Merchandise
The Runaways have grown in stature over the years as the first all-female band to make a substantial impression on the public by playing loud, straight-up, guitar-driven rock & roll. The band's music was frequently raw and amateurish, but it neatly combined American heavy metal with the newly emerging sound of punk rock. Among their best-known songs are "Cherry Bomb", "Hollywood", "Queens of Noise" and "Rock & Roll". The Runaways started out in 1975 as a trio which comprised of guitarist Joan Jett, drummer Sandy West, and bassist Micki Steele. Lead guitarist Lita Ford and lead singer Cherie Currie joined the band line-up in 1976. Steele subsequently left and was replaced by Jackie Fox. The Runaways have rightfully earned their spot in rock and roll history. They proved to the world that women could rock as hard as men could. Each one of them was a uniquely talented musician and highly precocious. The Runaways shocked the world with both their talent and their boldness.
