After U.K. punk pioneers Generation X called it quits, frontman Billy Idol wasted no time in reinventing himself as the snarling 1980s MTV icon of New Wave-infused Hard Rock most know (and some love). His career has constantly teetered on the line between legitimacy and self-parody, producing an impressive amount of infectious, fist-pumping hits alongside a number of forgettable turkeys. Who can resist blasting the radio when "Rebel Yell" comes on, or imitating his patented lip curl and clenched fist while singing along with "Cradle of Love"? Undeniably, his 1993 release Cyberpunk was an unfortunate occurrence, but Idol's previous successes have proven strong enough to survive any hardship.
