Song of the Day: 'School Days' by the Runaways


I'm a casual Runaways fan, so I'm always surprised when I remember that Joan Jett took over lead vocal duties after Cherie Currie left the band. Not unlike the Bangles, Joan's songwriting has been obscured by her love of also recording covers. But "School Days" was penned by Joan, as were eight of the 10 songs that appear on the 1977 album "Waitin' for the Night," released when she was just 19.
