MESSAGE TO YOU
This album is for the young of age and the young at heart. It's for those who know it's great to be young and who enjoy their youth in the best way they know how. Enjoy listening to this album as much as all of us loved writing, playing, singing and creating it for you. When you listen to these songs, you'll be reminded of all the fun you're having being and staying young. After all, people say these are the best years of our lives. Well, we know they are and we make every minute count. Take this album, live it and love it.
From The Runaways to you.
The Runaways are everything that's great about teenage girls. The tough ones who never came to school because they were out too late the night before. Its true, there have always been as many girl punks as boys. The Runaways are as real as getting beat up after school. Their songs are about juvenile delinquent wrecks, sex, growing up wrong, and parties.
The white-middle class suburbs were bound to have their outbreak of teen troublemakers, that's The Runaways. Their roots are TV, hanging around and going to Hollywood on weekends because it's the only thing to do after five days of school and partying. They make you hear the frustration of teenage life, and even more, the utter-bone-crunching boredom of nothing to do and nowhere to do it.
The Runaways aren't just "an all-girl band" or an exercise in women's lib. They're a rock and roll band. They're rock and roll. They're for real.
