I can't remember the name of a great movie. Cute long haired teenage blonde gives herself a buzz cut after events force her to the life of a fugitive. Techo geek helps her bring the man responsible for her situation to justice. I think the song rebel yell by B.Idol was the theme song. I may be misremembering some/all of this, can anyone shed light on this?

I honestly don't remember if Rebel Yell was in the movie for certain. I think it was, but if it wasn't - it SHOULD have been. But I do remember that Pat Benatar's "Invincible" was the big theme.

The Pat Benatar song that you think is "We Are Young" is as a matter of fact most likely "Love Is A Battlefield."

And yes, I can tell you that Billy Idol's "Rebel Yell" IS in the film's soundtrack.

Isn't Pat Benatar's "Invincible" the theme song?

Yes, "Invincible" is the theme song, and I remember it playing during the end credits.

Of course the classic "Invincible" is the theme tune.
Check out the great video here:

Or even better get the excellent "Choice Cuts the Complete video collection" dvd like i did.

Devolution here,

It's a great movie, no doubt and it probably represents the last of the good Benetar songs. She didn't have any juice left for the late 80's.

What ever happened to Helen Slater? I liked her in this and in The Secret Of My Success. She didn't seem to have much of a career after the 80's.

Did you guys know that she was born in the same town as Brian Setzer? (Stray Cats) Massapequa, New York.
