The Runaways - "Queens of Noise"

Celebrated as one of the first all-female hard rock groups, the Runaways were led by singers Cherie Currie and Joan Jett and the guitar shredding Lita Ford. Merely teenagers at the peak of their success, the band members were unfortunately marketed as jailbait (think Britney Spears circa "Baby One More Time"), but the Runaways nevertheless persevered as a group of bad ass rockers who could pen a classic tune or two (see "Cherry Bomb," "Midnight Music"). You can catch the whole story biopic-style next year with Kristen Stewart ("Adventureland") as Jett and Dakota Fanning ("Coraline") as Currie.
