    the original sound like manly, and dakota sounds more like a girl, and i think kristen will be lesbian in the future, and dakota, its like doing everything equals as kristen.. COPYCAT

    Not as good as I thought but you know, whatever! At least they're singing something. Nothing beats the orginal in my opinion.

    The Runaways is Bad A#@ KSTEW is Bad A%$ simply can not wait to see this movie in the theaters. Saw real runaways footage and videos from the 70's on you tube and they are amazing go check it out they kick but and were the original pioneers for rock and roll women. Cherrie was right in mentioning that from the moment she saw her she knew that Joan Jett would become the god mother of rock and roll. Kstew looks and appears so much like joan its erie. Wish the runaways would reunite listen to their work and this movie its the story of their dream very personal they worked really hard and the legacy of the runaways will live on. Rock on Kstew and Dakota thanks for doing this you are amazing congrats to u

    Definitely like the original. Dakota did her best probably but heard side by side she put a different spin on the vocals that didnt need to be there. Oh well.

    I think Dakota's voice is a little cheekier than Cherie's, love it! Kristen will be amazing as Joan, you can tell she's put everything into it, surly that can't be a bad thing x

    Man they are doing their best to make the sounds as close it the original but since they are not really real " the run aways" I think ppl shouldnt give them much of a hard time. Some of you out there older than they are dont even have this much talent or life. stop talk sh*t.

    so only by listening the track you see that she wants to be a badass? lol. Do you know joan jett. i don't think so. Because people who really know her feared that nobody can be too badass for playing her. I saw this movie in sundance and like a big joan jett fan , i can say she just blew me away

    definitely like the original better...i really think dakota is amazing as cherie...but i feel like kstew is trying a little too hard to be badass.
