Editors’ Notes

This hard-rocking, proto-punk, all-girl quintet had an uncanny musical chemistry that was tightly bound in a leather-tough cool with razor-sharp style and catchy songs laced in diamond sharp hooks. The soundtrack to their 2010 biopic does much more than rehash their greatest hits — it throws in some of the band’s influences (like Suzi Quatro’s glitter-stomper “The Wild One” and David Bowie’s riff-rocking “Rebel Rebel”) as well as a few of their ‘70s contemporaries (such as Nick Gilder’s bubbleglam hit “Roxy Roller”) and a couple other architects of punk (including “I Wanna Be Your Dog” by the Stooges and MC5’s gritty cover of James Brown’s “It’s a Man’s Man’s World”). And any doubt of actress Dakota Fanning’s ability to sing Cherie Currie’s parts can be tossed out from the moment she belts out a nearly identical rasp on their iconic hit “Cherry Bomb.” Actress Kristen Stewart also delivers a stellar vocal performance as Joan Jett on a snarling rendition of “Dead End Justice.” Of course nothing beats the real thing as evidenced by the Runaways’ own “Hollywood,” “You Drive Me Wild” and a live version of “I Wanna Be Where the Boys Are.”

Where is playing with fire? It's on The trailer but not the soundtrack, really!

Good album...but where's "Fire"?

This is a good pretty album! It showcases Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie and Kristen Stewart at Joan Jett. They both sound pretty good, with Kristen sounding more like Joan Jett than Dakota sounding like Cherie.

I have one criticism...where is the cover of "I Love Playing With Fire" by Stewart? That was a very prominent part in the film and should be on the soundtrack. Besides, "Fire" was one of the more popular Runaways songs.

Still, it's a great soundtrack and features great artists like The Stooges, Sex Pistols and Suzi Quatro.
