It will suck for the contestants, but rock for David Cook.
The Season 7 winner of "American Idol" has had one of his songs chosen as the exit theme for this year's departing contestants, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Cook's version of the Simple Mind's song "Don't You (Forget About Me)" will be played as the Season 10 contestants depart after elimination. The track was a 1985 hit for the group and made popular by the film "The Breakfast Club."
Past "Idol" exit songs used have included Daughtry's "Home," Carrie Underwood's "Home, Sweet Home," and Will Young's "Leave Right Now."
