    When I first heard of Billy Idol so long ago I thought he had music like Elton John. I didn't expect it to be so great! I love metal, and he has some great stuff.

    YouTube - Rebel Yell (Billy Idol cover)

    ^ Rebel Yell is one of his great songs. Very good and fast.

    White Wedding is another good one.

    Does anybody like his stuff? I don't get why people make fun of him. :eek:

    I like some of his songs like Dancing with Myself, Eyes Without a Face, and Don't you Forget about me. The others, I don't dig it much.

    I'm not a big fan of Billy Idol, I like Money Money and White Wedding that's pretty much it.

    Im going to a Def Leppard concert in August and Billy Idol will be opening for them, so will see if I really like him or not.

    Just a correction: the video I posted was a mistake. It was sung by somebody else other than Billy Idol. I never listened to Billy before, so, I just assumed it was him. My apologies!

    Mony, Mony and Dancing By Myself are good, too. I checked them about after Rebel Yell. Good stuff.
