The film's "Gung Ho" title was changed to "Working Class Man" for the picture's Australian theatrical release, as it is the title of a very well known Australian rock song sung by Jimmy Barnes
. The tune plays at the end of the movie and right through the closing credits. The song first appeared on Barnes' similarly titled 1985 album "For the Working Class Man" which had launched about a year before this movie debuted. See more
