Song of the Day: Billy Idol – “Rebel Yell”

Happy birthday wishes go out to William Michael Albert Broad, a.k.a. Billy Idol, who turns 61 years old today. Here’s one of Idol’s most famous tracks, and one that had simple beginnings. Idol got the idea for the song that was attended by the Rolling Stones, who were sipping on Rebel Yell brand whiskey. Idol liked the name and decided to use it in a song. That song went on to reach No. 6 on the U.K. charts and No. 46 on the Billboard Hot 100.
