One of the Greatest Rock artists of the end of the 20th Century (Especially in the 80's).
His songs sound like no one else's, and he is considered to be a 'genre' by himself; his tunes seem to be for the mass market at first, but he actually deals with complex themes in 'Sweet Sixteen', 'Eyes Without a Face'; he even emphasizes society's new view on 80's phenomena such as the 'White Wedding', or the freeing of Sexual practices in 'Flesh For Fantasy'.
Even his name is no accident; one of his teachers in England complained that 'Billy is IDLE in class', which he later turned to his advantage under the stage name 'Billy Idol'.

An extremely talented and sexy man who in his 50s, still has the body of a 25 year old and is alive and kickin'. Despite his heavy drug use, accident, and being kicked out of many public places, he is still seen as an idol to many. His irresistible lip-curl and his wild and crazy attitude both off and on stage make him irresistible to women, in particular. He fancies women to no end and is a very sexual man. Billy Idol the epitome of a badass.
Girl A: Billy Idol and I fucked last night. And man, was it great.
Girl B: Really? We fucked last weekend!
Girl C: Us too!
Girl D: Ditto.
The only person to do pop music right in the last 30 years. Yes, he has an image. But in his case the stuffin's match the... um, CD cover. Awesome songs such as Rebel Yell and White Wedding. His recordings have an undefinable air to them that can't be explained. Proves that popular doesn't necessarily mean bad, and can mean awesome. The kind of person who doesn't give a shit and you can still look up to them just for them being who they are. Still looks good in leather pants. Makes all other rock and pop stars look like pretenders, especially considering he's still making new albums to this day.
I can't believe I'm the first to define Billy Idol.
A great rock artist (not new wave) from the early to mid eighties who defined the end of good music . Known for "White Wedding", "Rebel Yell", and "Dancing with myself". Formerly sang for Generation X.
Here's my favorite 80's rock, def lepp, bob seger, and billy idol.
fist-pumping dance used by the singer of the same name to indicate feelings of excitement or euphoria
While we were on the way to the game, we rocked the Billy Idol every time Rebel Yell came on.
a badass to this day
