In the grand tradition of the Velvet Underground, the Stooges, the MC5, and the New York Dolls, the Runaways were a band who paid a steep price for being ahead of the curve.

Often dismissed during their existence as a crass marketing gimmick, 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. Since all of the members were teenagers (some of whom were still learning to play their instruments when they passed their auditions), the band's music was frequently raw and amateurish, but it neatly combined American heavy metal with the newly...
