They're gonna put up a fight!

In light of Joan Jett and Cherie Currie's lawsuit against Main Man Records for attempting to release a tribute album in homage to their band, The Runaways, called Take It Or Leave It: A Tribute to the Queens of Noise, without their permission, the record label has responded, claiming that the recording was made "with the best of intentions," and the proceeds were to raise funds for cancer research!

Furthermore, the label has yet to receive a copy of the suit, but plans to fight it when it comes.

Frankly, regardless of what the intentions were, if they don't have their permission, we don't see what makes them think it's okay to put this out!

What do U think?? Should this album get released?

Joan Jett Filing Lawsuit Over Unauthorized Runaways Tribute Album

joan jett and cherie currie filing lawsuit over tribute album

Kind of puts a damper on the whole "paying tribute" thing.

Joan Jett and bandmate Cherie Currie have filed a lawsuit against indie label Main Man Records, in an effort to stop them from releasing a Runaways tribute album without their permission.

According to Main Man Records' website, the album is a two-disc set, featuring covers of the band's songs by a variety of different artists.

The lawsuit says that Main Man used Joan and Cherie's names to promote the album without getting the proper permission first, and that an employee who used to work for Joan "used that connection to imply the project had her blessing."

Joan and Cherie are seeking "unspecified damages" in their lawsuit, but really they just don't want the album to be released.

Here's what their lawyer Oren J. Warshavsky had to say about it:

"This isn't about money. This is strictly about preserving reputation and quality that both Joan and Cherie are known for."

Guess we'll see how this plays out, but there's def something kind of gross about releasing a tribute album when the artists being honored are against the idea.

What do U think? Team Joan Jett or Team Main Man?

The Runaways Give GaGa Advice!

Filed under: Music MinuteLady GaGa

Joan Jett and Cherie Currie of The Runaways know a little bit about longevity. The two have been rocking out for decades and felt they could offer advice to the world's biggest star, Lady GagG.

Jett said:

"I'll tell you, The Runaways, when we started, we didn't have this sort of craziness around us. Really the only time when there was insanity, as far as the press goes, was Japan … it wasn't a 24-hour media world at that point. I think it's very difficult if you had to be dealing with this all the time. It's tough to incubate and do the work you need to do with people in your face."

Cherie, who became a drug counselor after leaving the group, has other advice.

"You know you have got to try to keep your wits about you," she said. "There is so much expected from you. But try to limit yourself to just two … as long as it is in drinking form, just two [drinks].

Whether she takes the words of wisdom or not, we're pretty sure Gagaloo will be around for quite some time!
