Retronaut Favorites: The Runaways

Published on 6 April 2022 at 08:20

The first song I remember hearing by The Runaways was "Rock N Roll". It was playing on my dad's stereo, which is how I discovered many of my favorite bands.

I remember listening to songs like "Midnight Music" and "Don't Go Away" countless times when I was younger, and I still listen to The Runaways now that I'm older.

The Runaways are known as the first all-girl rock group, but bands like Fanny shouldn't be overlooked because they were another early all female rock group.

We discovered Cherie Currie, Joan Jett, Lita Ford, Sandy West, Jackie Fox, and Vicki Blue because of The Runaways. Women who were passionate about music.

The Runaways don't only inspire women to become musicians, they inspire women to become journalists and want to be a part of the music industry. The legends are the ones who inspire others.
