''I was at an event where Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ron Wood of The Rolling Stones were taking swigs of Rebel Yell straight from the bottle. This gave me the idea for the title, and I wrote the song around it.'' - Billy Idol
"On the set of the video, we had lots of beer and wine on the busses, which nowadays you could not do. Everyone was well soused. I put the hot looking girls with the big tits up front." - Jeff Stein (video director)
''Rebel Yell'' has nothing to do with the Civil War, it's a cry of love, a really female cry of love.'' - Billy Idol
