    “By 2041, spiked hair and acid-washed jeans were back in style, and covers of hit 80’s pop songs by contemporary bands dominated the music charts.” (Cline, p.8-9)

    When I re-read the novel, I instantly remembered this line and thought, “What contemporary bands could cover an 80’s song for the upcoming movie?”

    Here is my first thought:

    Paramore should cover Pat Benatar's iconic song “Invincible”. The song lends itself well to the story (“We can’t afford to be innocent/Stand up and face the enemy”) and Benatar was Art3mis’s homeworld.
