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.”

Two beautiful young ladies! Adore them both.

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.

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.

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

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

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

what was that?

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.

They are such a badass. I LOVE KRISTEN.

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

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

I liked Kristen a lot but know :X IDK but Dakota looks so lovely !! Love her! KStew’s hair looks so dirty :(
