Song of the Day: The Runaways – “Cherry Bomb”



On this day in 1975, drummer Sandy West and rhythm guitarist/vocalist Joan Jett formed the influential group The Runaways. The band only lasted until 1979 and released four albums, but their legacy would be felt for decades to come. This of course is their most well-known song, one that went to No. 1 in Japan and Scandinavia and No. 2 in the UK and Ukraine (it reached just 106 in the US).
