** "Cradle of Love" was also Billy Idol's ''last'' hit single. Granted, Idol was largely thought of as an [[TheEighties 80's]] musician, so his career was likely doomed by the [[TheNineties 90's]] anyway, given the sharp turn pop culture took only a year or two later (same goes for Andrew Dice Clay). Nevertheless, it has been speculated that this movie worked as a CreatorKiller for not only Clay, but Idol as well. Renny Harlin, on the other hand, still had a few years before he would suffer the [[CutthroatIsland same]] [[TheLongKissGoodnight fate.]]
