And now, because you asked for it, the Runaways music video with 16-year-old Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie singing “Cherry Bomb” in underwear and garters.  It’s definitely odd casting.  On one hand, as Ufford just told me, “That’s the first time I’ve listened to ‘Cherry Bomb’ in its entirety.”

On the other, Dakota Fanning’s probably the only actress I could see singing a suggestive song about her jailbait status in her underwear while thrusting her hips around and think, “Hmm, I wonder if this is for a sociology paper.”
