EDITORS’ NOTES

Billy Idol’s platinum shock-top and patented sneer are among New Wave’s most iconic artifacts, as are his many unforgettable anthems. The snarling “Rebel Yell” is a perfect package of hard rock, unstoppable hooks, and that inimitable, feral yowl, while the buzz-saw guitars of “Dancing with Myself” burst with the quick-step energy that introduced pogoing to the MTV generation. He even shows off his soulful side on “Flesh for Fantasy” and “Mony Mony,” balancing polished keyboards with touches of funk and gospel.
