Music Monday: "Waitin' For The Night"

The Runaways were ahead of their time, an all-girl rock group in an era that wasn't ready for them.  Straddling the line between hard rock and punk, the Runaways never got any commercial airplay in the U.S., although they did achieve a certain amount of commercial success in Europe and Japan.  This is the title track from their third album, after Cherie Currie left the group and Joan Jett took over on vocals, and is a rare example of a power ballad from the group (pay attention to Lita Ford's guitar solo - not that you can miss it).
