Joan Jett loves rock and roll, but not on a tribute album she says an ex-employee put together without her permission. The "I Love Rock N' Roll" singer-guitarist and 1970s bandmate Cherie Currie sued to try to stop the June 28 release of Take It or Leave It: A Tribute to the Queens of Noise, an intended homage to the Runaways, the punk bank that launched their careers and helped light a path for other brash, hard-edged female rock groups. The two-disc album features Runaways songs covered by artists ranging from the all-woman Japanese pop-punk band Shonen Knife to David Johansen, of the 1970s glam-rock pacesetters the New York Dolls, according to the website of the label releasing it, Main Man Records.
