Released on this day in 1983, Rebel Yell is the second studio album from Billy Idol. Perfectly timed for the MTV Generation, the album's singles "Rebel Yell," "Eyes Without A Face," "Flesh For Fantasy," and "Catch My Fall" and their subsequent videos, helped propel it to the top of the charts. In the US it peaked at #6 and has gone on to sell over 2 million copies worldwide. Idol says he named the album after attending a party with The Rolling Stones and drinking "Rebel Yell" whiskey.
