|The Runaways chronology|
Waitin' for the Night is the third studio album from The Runaways released in 1977. This is the first album to feature the group as a quartet, as rhythm guitarist Joan Jett took over lead vocals in the wake of the departure of Cherie Currie for a solo career and Vicki Blue (aka Victory Tischler-Blue) replaced Jackie Fox on bass. Though it failed to chart in the US, it was successful in Europe. The album entered at number 34 on the Swedish Album Chart, and the lead single 'School Days' peaked at no. 29 in Belgium.
