Joan Jett and Cherie Currie Suing Main Man Records Over Runaways Tribute

Former Queens of Noise Joan Jett and Cherie Currie of The Runaways fame are teaming up once again, but not for a new musical project. According to Billboard, the duo is suing to stop the release of ‘Take It Or Leave It: A Tribute to the Queens of Noise,’ a Runaways tribute due out June 28th via New Jersey-based Main Man Records.

‘Take It Or Leave It’ is a two-disc set featuring an array of artists like all-female Japanese rock band Shonen Knife, all girl pop punkers The Donnas, and The New York Dolls‘ David Johansen paying homage to the band. Jett and Currie claim that a Main Man label staffer who once worked for Jett’s label inappropriately represented their relationship, implying that Jett was supportive of the project.

Jett and Currie are seeking unspecified damages. Their lawyer says the suit is not about the money. Rather, they are more interested in preserving their reputations.
