Edge of Fifteen
They don't give a damn 'bout their bad reputation
Never been afraid of any deviation.
And they don't really care if you think they're strange
They ain't gonna change
And they're never gonna care about their bad reputation.
OH NO NO NO NO NO NO NO
Not them, them, them, them
Sometimes a blogger has nothing to say about Joan Jett and Cherie Currie (played in Floria Sigismondi's "The Runaways" by Kristen Stewart and Dakotta Fanning) except that you can get a better taste of Lita Ford and Sandy West and the other bassists in "Edgeplay: A Film About the Runaways." People who are threatened by girls rocking out, making out and drugging out might wig. But the girls had fun and there's no real tragic VH1 Behind the Scenes stuff. They grew up too soon? No, they blew up when they damned well needed to. Would you rather they had stayed home and played with their dollies? No way! They were nobody's jail-bait either, they chose when and if they wanted to have sex. Yeah, they were a manufactured girl power group, buy they produced some serious scrappy punk. HALLUCINA loves the Runaways, loves Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, and... naturally, rock and roll.
