Trivia: Billy Idol
  • Jossed: Idol himself denies "Dancing With Myself" is about masturbation.
    • "White Wedding" was not about how much he hated his sister's husband, per the man himself.
  • Old Shame: His infamous Rolling Stone cover story (pictured as the page image), mostly due to the fact the pictures embarrassed the hell out of him, and because he was drunk and stoned out of his mind during the interview resulting in a less than flattering portrayal.
  • What Could Have Been: He was one of several artists to turn down performing "Don't You Forget About Me", which was ultimately made famous by Simple Minds (who initially wanted to turn it down themselves). In 2001, he recorded his own version as a new track on a Greatest Hits Album.
