    Rebel Yell will always be my favorite Billy Idol tune (followed closely by White Wedding)

    I like him, we always called him "The Sneer"...:D

    White Wedding is my pick, but he did quite a few good songs.

    I became a fan of Billy's right after seeing the video for "White Wedding" when it first was released. It was at a huge night club called Uncle Sam's in the Buffalo, NY area. The place had 2 big screen TV's that played music videos & "White Wedding" had such a cool creepy sound to it.
    I know their are a few Best of & Anthology Generation X compilations out there but I highly recommend searching for their Kiss Me Deadly album from '80/'81 becauses there's one song that to me rises above anything Idol has ever done & that song is "What Do You Want" which is one song I always include on any Punk compilation I make up. This is one song that needs to be heard by everyone

    What can I say? A God! Love him, Love him, Love him lol :)

    How can you say he's never taken seriously? He was give a lot of stick in the UK and thats why we lost him due to small mindedness, our bad and also loss.

    What an awesome export! :)

    Yes my favourite all time is Rebel Yell followed by White Wedding and Sweet Sixteen :)

    Id have liked to have included a couple of vids but for some reason its not posting. :-( Anyway check out Scream and John Wayne if you can :) xx
