Trivia:

Two songs from each of his famous bands, The Ides of March and Survivor, appear in a Sylvester Stallone film: Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger" in Rocky III (1982) and the Ides of March's "Vehicle" in Lock Up (1989). Both songs were important in motivating Stallone's character to "beat the odds".
