Rebel Yell è la canzone che dà il titolo al secondo album solista di Billy Idol, che fu pubblicata in singolo nel 1983 ma poi rilasciata di nuovo nel 1985 ottenendo (al secondo tentativo) un gran successo commerciale soprattutto in patria nel Regno Unito.
La canzone nasce da quando lo stesso Idol si trovò a bere whiskey con i componenti dei Rolling Stones, i quali sorseggiavano un bourbon del Kentucky la cui etichetta riportava proprio “Rebel Yell” (e che tutt’oggi viene prodotto).
Come spesso è accaduto ai maggiori successi di Billy Idol, anche Rebel Yell è stata coverizzata da band heavy metal ed in questo caso alcune delle più rappresentative del panorama metal finlandese: Children Of Bodom, Him, Northern Kings, Nightwish.
A queste si aggiunge una versione di tutt’altro stile ma che anch’essa ha riscosso discreto successo: quella disco-hardcore dei tedeschi Scooter (1996).
Il canale musicale newyorkese VH1 l’ha citata tra le migliori canzoni hard rock di tutti i tempi, piazzandola al 79esimo posto.
