Who Knew Billy Idol Covered ‘The Breakfast Club’ Theme? [Video]
This morning on the Jojo Show, we got into a discussion with a caller about who was originally asked to perform 'Don't You Forget About Me' for the Breakfast Club soundtrack. I thought it was Psychedelic Furs, he said it was Billy Idol.
We never resolved the dispute, but Jason sent us this Billy Idol version of the song from his Greatest Hits album. I never knew it existed. Now, I'm glad it does.
Idol added it as an extra, along with a acoustic version of 'Rebel Yell'. He adds a little more sneer to the song, which dominated the charts for the group Simple Minds back in 1985.
