Greatest Hitsby Billy Idol
No rocker since Elvis has sneered better than Billy Idol. And what better way to pay tribute to the platinum-coiffed Brit punk than with this Greatest Hits package. In addition to quintessential Idol classics such as the slam-dance-inspiring "Dancing with Myself," the naughty rock anthem "White Wedding," the tear-jerking ballad "Eyes Without a Face," and the comeback hit "Cradle of Love," this rockin' collection features a live, acoustic version of "Rebel Yell" and a previously unreleased version of Idol singing "Don't You (Forget About Me)," a song he was offered before it became a smash hit for the Simple Minds. With a rebel yell, this collection will leave any true Idol fan crying, "More, more, more!"

billy idol is a must have for any punk rocker! i got into him in like 3rd grade & i can't get enogh. i love his album Whiplash Smile. it's one of my faves. but don't get me wrong, they ALL rock! BILLY FOREVER!
oh god, i remember being five and dancing to Dancing with Myself by Billy Idol but never really understanding any of his music. Which was a real shame. but i recomend anyone to listen to his music!!
if you havent heard ''white wedding'' or ''dancin with myself'' you havent lived! i just recently got into billy idol, and now i cant get enough!
I grew up on the brink of the 90s but I gotta tell you, Billy Idol was a big part of my life. My cousin would play tons of music when I was a kid and I would dance to so many different artist, Billy being one of them. Now that I'm older, I can appreciate his music, his voice in ways I couldn't then. This is a CD that has every single bit of him, from the rebel to the romantic. It's a must for any Idol fan.
i would suggest this cd to everry1 who likes punk rock. i really enjoy lstening to it. if u r reding this billy idol, let me say i love your music.
