I had forgotten that song. We must be around the same age, as that was highschool age for me.
Graduated H/S in 1985...Worked as bartender at a club in Ft. Lauderdale called the Reunion Room that played nothing but "alternative/progressive" music when I was 23-24. Used to hear a LOT of Love & Rockets, Bauhaus, Peter Murphy, NIN, RHCP, Ministry even things like the Dead Kennedys, etc. Love all of that music - and my wife just does not understand it
