In the documentary Edgeplay: A Film About the Runaways , Fowley and former Runaways lead singer Cherie Currie claimed that "Cherry Bomb" was quickly written just for Currie to audition for the band because the band members could not perform the song she originally chose to sing. Jett re-recorded the song with her band the Blackhearts for the album Glorious Results of a Misspent Youth. Cherie Currie also re-recorded "Cherry Bomb" with Marie Currie , her twin sister, on their re-released version of the album Messin' with the Boys. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The title is a play on Cherie 's name, who was just 16 when this song was released. According to Songfacts , "cherry bomb" is a small explosive device popular with kids, but in the context of this song, it means an underage girl who is lots of trouble — in this case taunting her parents and other adults with suggestions of promiscuity and bad behavior. Cherie said: " 'Cherry Bomb' never would have been written had I picked a different Suzi Quatro song to do my audition with. Of course, the girls were not happy with that. And Kim Fowley , I spent a lot of the last days of his life — I moved him into my house when he was dying of cancer. And Kim was a songwriter like no one I've ever known. He brought Joan into the house. And knowing Kim and how he writes — that flowed right out of his mouth, all the lyrics that he came up with for 'Cherry Bomb'.
A cherry bomb also known as a globe salute , kraft salute or bangarang is an approximately spherical exploding firework. Cherry bombs range in size from three-quarters of an inch to one and a half inches 1. A typical cherry bomb contains a core of explosive composition e. An ignition fuse is inserted into a hole drilled into the hardened sawdust sphere, all the way down to reach the explosive composition. The fuse extends outside the sphere approximately one to one and a half inches. Once the fuse is ignited, it takes about three to four and a half seconds to reach the explosive composition and initiate explosion of the firework. The color of the salute's exterior varies, depending on the manufacturer and the time period during which the salute was produced. Early on, in the lates and s, globe salutes had fuses which were tan, red or striped and multi-colored, and their body color varied, ranging from brown and tan to silver and red, and some were even decorated with multi-colored confetti. However, by the s the most common color of the spherical salutes being marketed was a deep pink to red, with a green fuse, which is when the names cherry salute and cherry bomb entered popular use. These original spherical salutes were powerful enough to cause a legitimate safety concern.
