Cherry Bomb

Joan Jett, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts

About Cherry Bomb

"Cherry Bomb" is a 1976 punk-influenced hard rock single by the all-female band the Runaways from their self-titled debut album, and is often regarded as the band's signature song. "Cherry Bomb" was also ranked 52nd on VH1's 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs. It peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart in the U. S. Singer/guitarist Joan Jett composed the song with Kim Fowley, the band's then-manager. In the 2005 documentary Edgeplay: A Film About the Runaways, Fowley and former Runaways lead singer Cherie Currie claimed that "Cherry Bomb" was quickly written just for Currie to audition for the band because the band members could not perform the song she originally chose to sing. Jett re-recorded the song with her band the Blackhearts for the 1984 album Glorious Results of a Misspent Youth. Cherie Currie also re-recorded "Cherry Bomb" with Marie Currie, her twin sister, on their 1997 re-released version of the album Messin' with the Boys.

Can't stay at home 
Can't stay at school
Old folks say
"You poor little fool"

Down the street
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-ch-ch-cherry bomb
Hello world
I'm your wild girl
Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb

Stone age love and strange sounds too
Come on baby let me get into you
Bad nights causin' teenage blues
Get down ladies you've got nothing to lose!

Hello Daddy 
Hello Mom
I'm your ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb
Hello world
I'm your wild girl
Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb

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

Hello Daddy 
Hello Mom
I'm your ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb
Hello world
I'm your wild girl
Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb
Cherry bomb
Cherry bomb
Cherry bomb
