"Cherry Bomb" as written by Kim Fowley and Joan Jett....
Can't stay at home, can't stay at school.
Old folks say 'You poor little fool'.
Down the streets I'm the girl next door.
I'm the fox you've been waiting for.

Hello, daddy. Hello, mom.
I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!
Hello world! I'm your wild girl.
I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!

Stone age love and strange sounds too.
Come on, baby, let me get to you.
Bad nights causing teenage blues.
Get down ladies, you've got nothin' to lose.

Hello, daddy. Hello, mom.
I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!
Hello world! I'm your wild girl.
I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!

Hello, daddy. Hello, mom.
I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!
Hello world! I'm your wild girl.
I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!

Hey, street boy, want some style?
Your dead end dreams don't make you smile.
I'll give you something to live for.
Have you and grab you until you're sore.

Hello, daddy. Hello, mom.
I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!
Hello world! I'm your wild girl.
I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!
Cherry bomb!
Cherry bomb!
Cherry bomb!
Cherry bomb!

    General CommentI'm excited to see Kristen Stewart tackle this role. In real life, she seems to be more of a Joan Jett than a Bella Swan, anyway. I hate how her role in Twilight seems to supercede here acting ability, etc.

    This is not my favorite Runaways song.

    General CommentAll I can say about the upcoming movie is that the trailer is AMAZING. And Cherie herself said Dakota was perfect for the role.
    They're both gonna do great...
    I'm just sad Sandy is not gonna see this =(

    General CommentYa I agree with you all cuz it was kind of a shock to hear that twilight actresses were going to be in a rocker film but the twilight movies haven't really given Kristen Stewart any justice-sure shes not the greatest actress in the world, but she can act. Personally, I also think that Kristen Stewart seems more like a rock/grunge chick than anything; she just has that look to her. And since Dakotah Fanning has just started taking on more mature rolls, you can't really start criticizing just yet. but the trailer looked good so I guess that's all we can hope for!
