Biography

The Runaways were an American all-female rock band that recorded and performed in the second half of the 1970s. The band released four studio albums and one live set during its run. Among its best-known songs are "Cherry Bomb", "Hollywood", "Queens of Noise", "Neon Angels On the Road to Ruin", "California Paradise", "Dead End Justice", and the cover of the Velvet Underground’s "Rock n Roll". The Runaways, though never a major success in the United States, became a sensation overseas, e.g. in Japan, thanks to the hit single "Cherry Bomb".
