Quick Tip by . July 03, 2011
Not merely the best distaff rock band of the genre's history, these girls epitomized the frustrated aggression and knowing camp of their garish era. Though their popularity was limited to superstardom only in L.A. and Tokyo, their influence is nigh-incalculable, and comparable to that of their contemporaries (The Ramones, Cheap Trick). They're often imitated (sometimes very well, as by The Donnas), but never bettered.

The Runaways were the first and last all girl punk band. Period. End of story. There is no room for discussion.
