While the album features a range of different temposmost of it consists of the "heavy" guitar-driven tracks that have come to be seen as The Runaways' signature sound, although it also features two noticeably softer songs that have sometimes been described as early power ballads.
While stylistically similar to the band's self-titled debut album The RunawaysQueens of Noise features greater emphases on volume and musical sophistication.

Queens of Noise features a total of ten songs that are evenly split between the two sides of the original vinyl record.

The album's titular song has a "heavy" sound and features a distinctive riff as well as a guitar solo by Ford. Written singlehandedly by Jett, who also handles lead vocal duties on the song,  "Take It or Leave It" challenges the title track in terms of strength and power with its "thunderous" drumming from West, who begins the song with a drum filland "powerful" guitar Somebody Real (Vocal Trippy Mix) - Bit Machine Featuring Daisy Dee - Somebody Real by both Ford and Jett.
In sharp contrast to the first two songs on the album, "Midnight Music" is a softer and more melodic song with Currie on lead vocals. Written by Fowley, West, and former bassist and future Bangle Michael "Micki" Steele "Born to Be Bad" is very slow in tempo and also features "unusually mellow" lead vocals from Jett for part of the song.
The first track on the second side of the original album, "I Love Playin' The Sound of the Fox - 1 or 2. No Fire" is the second song on Queens of Noise that was written by Jett alone.

Written by Fowley, Fox, and Jett, "Hollywood" features Jett on lead vocals for the fifth and final time on the album,  while Fox provides backing vocals. Originally written by Ford and Fox, "Heartbeat" was conceived as a mock love song to Joey Ramone and was initially intended to feature Fox on lead vocals.
