The Runaways

So for the past, hmmm month of so I have been listening to a LOT of The Runaways. They are an all girl rock band from the 1970's formed by Joan Jett. In 1976 they got signed to Mercurey Records as "The Runaways." The band consists of Joan Jett,  Cherie Currie, Sandy West, Lita Ford and Jackie Fox. The band ended in 1979 and Joan Jett when on to forming "Joan Jett and The Blackhearts" and Blackheart Records. Cherie Currie and her twin sister Marie went on to release an LP.
