The band, "The Rave-Ups," is written on Samantha's notebook that she takes with her to school. Her sister, the girl who played Caroline's friend Patty, had a child with a member of that band. And, in Pretty in Pink, when Molly Ringwald is in the nightclub, Cats, with her friend Jena, (played by Alexa Kenin), and Simon, (played by Dweezil Zappa), the band that is playing is The Rave-Ups.
