The landmark first album by teenage girls The Runaways (singer Cherie Currie was 16 when this was recorded) kicks things off with the astonishing glam/punk/hard rock hybrid "Cherry Bomb." From there, Currie moans pretty much every two seconds (undoubtedly at the insistence of sleazeball/semi-genius Kim Fowley) and a 17-year-old Joan Jett drops guitar riffs as close to Aerosmith as The Stooges. '80s metal goddess Lita Ford plays lead guitar, and the band covers The Velvet Underground. How The Runaways didn't take over the world is anybody's guess.
