Did you know?
This documentary about the all girl rock band The Runaways, has no original Runaways music. The only music you hear is by other artists or you hear the band doing cover songs. That's because Joan Jett refused to take part in the production and refused to grant permission for the music to be used.

Sandy West: I had to shove a gun down someone's throat once and watch them shit their pants. And then you look around and you go, 'I just wanted to be a drummer in a rock band. I just wanted to be out on the road with Joan, and Lita, and Cherie, and you, and you know, just having fun. Like the good old days.'

Kim Fowley: I love boot camp. I went into two branches of the service because I loved it so much... I was the drill sergeant and they were the recruits.

Mrs. West: [Sandy West's Mom] As I look back and Sandy will agree with me, I should have tied her to the bed and said, "You can't do this." But you can't really take away your children's dreams.

It's like the, the band disbanded. It hurt. And I was really apart of looking out for these girls, and watching them grow up and growing up with them. So when all that ripping and tearing went on, my heart was ripping and tearing. And that's when you, uh, you find yourself feeling... lost. Where do I go? Where do I fit in? What do I do? How do I do it, how do I go about it? And when it hits you, it's really hard. All the sudden there's nothing. You got nothing. And you felt like you had everything and you're happy. It's the way things were... And then there's nothing.
