Day 324: Friday 19 March

Day 5: Week of Skirt, skort and dress

Today is all about rock ‘n’ roll.

It’s a battle of the bands. Not just any bands but girl bands.

In my mind The Runaways were truly awesome  and Joan Jett wrote one of the best rock chick songs of all time in Cherry Bomb.

Another thing that ensures the Runaways are now officially amazing is the bio-pic that’s come out in the USA starring those 2 legends of the silver screen Kristen ‘Twilight’ Stewart as Joan Jett and Dakota ‘War of the Worlds’ Fanning as Cherie Curie.

Check out the original Runaways. Rockin’ teenage girls rule!!

This song caused some consternation with YoD when a friend of mine said it was quote SHIT unquote. She then went on to say that Heart were a waaaay better girl band.

Just by comparing those two images of The Runaways and Heart it is easy to tell which band is the most awesomest. What does that Heart album cover say to you? It says to me Robin Hood and Sherwood Forest.

Now The Runaways picture up top is another matter. Joan and Cherie’s matching outfits and poses? Awesome. The hair-does? Awesome. The car? Awesome.

How does Heart respond? A carriage and a man in pantaloons???

Well strictly speaking Heart are NOT an all girl band, but granted when I think of Heart I think, like with The Runaways, of a blonde chick and a brunette chick.

So hears Heart doing Barracuda.

In keeping with the rock theme I have gone a little rock fashion with my look while I was digging through my records this morning.

Let me see what I can find in my record collection

I found Joan Jett and The Runaways but no Heart. Telling

    hello! thats not a greeting – its a slap HELLO!
    ok runaways are shit. they are from the ramones school of music. Funny, catchy, hooky, shitty. Heart can actually write songs and music. So, If being the coolest rockingest band actually means, girls who sing really loud and really shit, then yes, the runaways win.
    That said, I do love joan jett.

    and we all know that renaissance themes are heavily braided through the history of rocking rolledness.

  5. holdend says:

    and I do love a spot of cock rock
    soft or hard, it’s all good

  6. spiegel says:

    is your pink and blue joan jett album signed? i have that album, but it’s not signed.

    And the go-gos didnt get fat. they went the other way. belinda carlisle started out pleasingly plump and scruffy, then turned into a sleek anorexic…

    • Year of Denim says:

      I think the signing is part of the printing, but I could be wrong.
      And yeah, Belinda Carlisle, what a disappointment getting skinny!

    oh come on, barracuda – its a song about a fish
    Runaways are way cooler – they sing about fruit and look like they’d win a scrag fight any day.
    Plus Joan and Cheire must have great pelvic floor muscles after holding that pose – if you catch my drift
    And Joan’s version of Crimson and Clover – I could listen to it over a over

  8. […] compare that with me wearing jeggings here, here and […]
