Cherry Bomb

If there's one thing I love, it's music. And while we're on that topic, I just happen to love old school 70's/80's rock music - especially if it's coming from some kick ass rocker chicks. Cue in - the Runaways.

You might not have heard of them, but you do know at least one of the band members - Joan Jett.

This all girl rock band kicks some serious butt while singing this weeks' Song of the Week, Cherry Bomb.

Their story is truly awesome and suggest that you bone up on your Runaways knowledge at

They're also making their story into a movie, due out soon. Kristen Stewart, aka Bella from the Twilight Saga, portrays Joan Jett, while Dakota Fanning portrays Cherie Currie. A word to the wise though - these are not your innocent actresses that you know. They engage in a multitude of mature acts that are not for young eyes!

But like all good bands that have made a mark on the history of music, they did it their way and rocked out hardcore.

Check the trailer for the movie out at the Runaways website!
