Asked to name of a song from The Breakfast Club
, you'll most likely go with Simple Minds' "Don't You (Forget About Me)
," which plays during the iconic ending sequence - but an upbeat synth-rock anthem from Karla DeVito also soundtracks another memorable moment in the 1985 John Hughes film.
The movie follows a group of five dissimilar teens who are forced to spend Saturday detention together and learn they aren't as different as they thought. After a particularly heavy conversation where they share their personal struggles with social identity and parental pressure, the kids rock out to "We Are Not Alone" in an impromptu library dance party. The lyrics reflect their newfound bond after they dared to be vulnerable with each other.
