The original title for the film was Desperate Teenage Runaways. Producer Kim Fowley who owned the name of the all-girl rock band The Runaways made director David Markey change it (because of the similarities). See more »
This was a small gem of a bootleg VHS amongst friends in my teenage years (the mid-80's). Ultra-cool, campy story of a girl group playing ultra-cool rock 'n' roll. Funny as hell. Looked like someone's home movie with bad lighting, messy camera work, and often fuzzy sound, but who cared with such potent lines and a kick-ass soundtrack?
Supposedly the DVD is coming out next month... even if they haven't cleaned it up, it's better than most of the other so-called "musicals" of the 1980's.
Oh, and if I recall, there was a sequel that was pretty cool too.
