The Runaways

The Runaways were a successful girl group who performed heavy metal music in the 1970s.

Widely believed at the time to have been a novelty act[?] formed by producer Kim Fowley[?], who thought the notion of young women dressed in leather and lingerie performing heavy metal music was highly marketable, the band released its first record in 1976. They broke up in 1979, but not before launching the careers of Joan Jett[?] and Lita Ford, who went on to achieve substantial success in the 1980s.
