  • …but this Millennium Collection is strictly Runaways 101. There are much better places to begin your Runaways collection. Even the mid-’80’s Mercury compilation features all these songs and more. For those totally unfamiliar with the Runaways’ music, it’s crunchy, hard-shelled glitter rock(not quite punk, although critics were quick to call it that in 1977), with sexually diffuse lyrics and lots of bad-girl-on-the-schoolyard sneering. However, the Runaways were definitely not posers, and Lita Ford showed flashy, amazing guitar skills even then(she didn’t have much speed, but she was adept with this jailbait material). But for the uninitiated, the Mercury comp. is the better buy.
