The Runaways [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Instead of relying solely on the Runaways' music, the soundtrack for the 2010 silver screen adaptation of the band's story splits the difference between the group's contemporaries (David Bowie, Suzi Quatro, the Sex Pistols, and Nick Gilder, whose great "Roxy Roller" kicks off the proceedings) and the group itself, either via original recordings or new cuts with Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart standing in for Cherie Currie and Joan Jett, respectively.
