After seeing this tribute to the band, I´ve decided to launch a fan tribute myself. It´s a project called Born to be a Runaways Fan.

The idea is that we – the Runaways fans – do something in order to celebrate the band. And it can be done in many ways. You can post something about them on your Facebook Profile or your blog; you can comment on a song lyrics; you can post a photo; you can post a video on Youtube; you can record yourself singing something; you can dance; you can tell your story about the first time you listened to the band; you can talk about how much your friends just don´t understand why you´re so fucking in love with the band; you can do whatever you want to express you´re a Runaways fan. All you have to do is use the banner and spread the news to Runaways fans. Feel free!

Let´s rock!
