Hear Kristen Stewart & Dakota Fanning Sing 'Cherry Bomb'!

Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning aren’t just acting in The Runaways - they’re lending their vocal talents to the film, too!

The twosome star as Joan Jett and Cherie Currie in the movie (out April 9), and here’s the first listen of the girls’ musical efforts.

“I was stunned,” Cherie told Spin about what she thought when she saw the film. “When you live something, your first reaction is to say, ‘Well, that’s not right’ or “Wait a minute, it didn’t happen that way.’ Then Joan and I saw it again and thought, ‘Wow, this is really good.’ It takes time for it to sink in. I thought the performances were just incredible.”

    Why why WHY did the filmmakers think that they could pull off singing The Runaways? It’s nothing wrong with Kristen Stewart or Dakota, it’s just ridiculous to have them try to imitate them.

  • amy

    Big fan of the Runaways … not Kristen Stewart! My husband thinks I should still see it, but my problem with Kristen Stewart is she is herself in every single role. So if I wanted to see Bella Swan trying to be Joan Jett I would.

    Still making up my mind lol I love Dakota Fanning though! Such a talented, REAL actress. Song sounds good because it is current! Some changes with the tempo and sound but still similar and I think Dakota did a great job! Not too matchy matchy.

  • Julia

    Loveeee it !!!!
    Good job girls !

  • Jennifer

    @AMY – I completely 100000% agree with you :) Dakota sounds great on the song, I like it.

  • Ek200

    hahahahahaha amy you made me LOL like really LOL

    I applaud you! But you are going to get a lot of – “thumbs down” for all the little Twilight lovers who think these characters are real! Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of the movie, but “Twi-hards” bring it to a whole other level. Edward and Bella are noooooot real children lol

  • monk

    OMG!! Kristen!!!! AMAZING!!

  • No thanks

    Ewe I listened to a little bit and I had shut it off. Very bad idea and now I’m not sure if I want to watch the movie. I need to listen to the original

  • rhonda

    OMG! its a freaking movie…they sound alright nothing ever sounds as good as the original. A movie is just a representation yeesh

  • marissa

    what was that?

  • Mhm

    Why are some of you b!tching? This song sounds very similar to the original.

    Its sweet both of these chicks decided to sing the same songs of the people they are actually playing. Kudos to them because im sure it was not easy. If Joan seems to be cool with it , why cant you miserable people be?

    “Its just ricidlous to have them try to imitate them”
    Um they’re playing them in a movie you ditz. Makes total sense to me to try and have them sing like them aswell.

  • LOVE

    They are such a badass. I LOVE KRISTEN.

  • Elizabeth Lopez

    THEY BOTH KICKED ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 4js

    they are suppose to look and sound like the characters…that’s the whole idea of a “BIOPIC”, wow,some of you are a little slow up there!!! they sound exactly like the “RUNAWAYS”.

  • Depp fan

    Do you people really think Dakota is singing? LOL!

  • wtf

    Can Kristen get ANY uglier omg

  • Dane

    Hahahaha on what world is Kristen remotely beautiful ewwww.
    She is a greasy looking pothead!

  • no personality

    @Dane: Who can’t act to save her life which makes her even more unattractive.

  • Caught

    The beginning wasn’t too good.. but the chorus sounds legit! job well done for a 16 year!

    kristen not so much she plays the same character in every movie

  • James

    LOVE DAKOTA!

  • BUZZ KlLL

    Dakota is growing up to be a stunning young lady!

  • Elena

    They’re reeeeeally good!!!!

  • Amy

    @amy: Yep Kristen’s a drugged up stripper, locked in a panic room & she runs with vampires in real life oh & she’s actually Joan Jett. Yep she really plays herself in all her movie roles. :inserts eyeroll: Some of the characters she chooses to play are similiar to each other.

    Anyway saw the Runaways! FANTASTIC! Kristen = AMAZING! Dakota did a great job too.

  • kristenforever

    They sound better than the runaways!! you go girls, love ya both

  • rina

    what a stupid song, this is not a song, this is a sh!t

  • Deedz

    I love the original. Not bad. Aha, I was definitely expecting worse.

  • Parker

    guys this version is by dakota not kristen(i love original more), it’s great but could do better, especially dakota’s voice, because cherie’s voice is powerful so…

  • http://justjared.com Hayley

    I think Cherry Bomb sounds really good. I though that was mainly Dakota’s (Cherrie’s) song though. I think Kristen has another Joan Jett song that has not been featured in clips. IMO it is because the haters would go on full attack. The haters are really attacking Dakota here. The song sounds fantastic to me.
    Oh Lisa, I read this same comment over and over about you and your husband and bening indecisive about this film, and Kristen playing the same role over and over. Why oh why do you comment about someone you obviously dislike. Also Kristen does not play the same in each film. Time magazine gave pre-Twilight, The Yellow Handkerchief a good review. Kristen got good reviews at Sundance. So give it up.

  • http://justjared.com Hayley

    Oh Brian is back. At least you have expanded your repertoire. First few times all you could write was that Kristen is fugly. Why do people follow actors they dislike and post snarky comments? Kristen was nominated for a BAFTA in the UK. The had to watch all her films. They thought she was worthy of a nomination based on her body of work. I guess they are not as insightful as Brian and Amy.

  • HarlanPeaks

    @monk: Dakota is singing, kristen is only singing backing vocals saying “cherry bomb!”.

  • wb

    DAKOTA ROCKS…..!!!!!!

  • wb

    DAKOTA ROCKS

    @Amy. I’m pretty sure the 1st @amy means is that all the acting she does as those characters are alll so similar to her as she is in real life! Facial expressions everything… all shes doing is change her clothes and say different lines! lol She brings NOTHING new to those characters.

    take a true actress like meryl streep for example: she completely immerses herself in every role you can’t relate her characters to meryl streep as a person!

    don’t get all dramatic and start saying the characters she played..your so naive lol
