Right now, The Runaways, the debut album from the band The Runaways, is on sale in MP3 format for only $2.99.
Released in 1976, The Runaways is the debut album from the 1970’s all-girl rock band featuring Joan Jett, Lita Ford, and Cherie Currie, who were teenagers at the time – all the girls were around 16 at the time and their ages were even listed on the album’s back cover. The 10-track album features the band’s breakout hit “Cherry Bomb,” as well as “You Drive Me Wild,” “American Nights,” “Thunder,” and a cover of Lou Reed’s “Rock & Roll.”
All this for only $3!!! The Runaways is one of my favorite bands of all time and this album was my introduction to them as a little girl who wanted to play rock music. HIGHLY recommend.

FYI – The CD version is currently only available only on Import for $18.80. The CD is an AutoRip, which means it comes with a FREE MP3 version of the album (you’ll also get a $1 Amazon MP3 Credit when you buy the CD), but it looks like it’s temporarily out of stock right now. Welcome to what my life was like back in the 80s when I was trying to get this stuff on vinyl and then again to my life in the 90s when I was trying to get this on CD (had to mail away an order form from a CD Mail Order Catalog ad from the back of a metal magazine!). So, being able to get this on MP3, which means you get to listen to it instantly, for only $2.99 is amazing. Get in on this deal before it ends (no mention by Amazon on when it ends, they just said “Limited time only”). Note – you can also get these songs on CD if you purchase The Runaways – The Mercury Albums Anthology for $18.99 – an awesome deal for the band’s first 3 studio albums and their live album Live In Japan (42 songs total!), which is all the releases from when Cherie Currie was with the group.
