2 Rebel Yell

Dude this song simply puts the name in Rock, I could listen to this song over and over again, it's that good!

In the midnight hour, she cried more, more, more. With a rebel yell she cried more. More, more. Ahh! This song always gets stuck in my head. One of the best rock songs! Simply legendary.

Simply a legendary piece of hard rock, one of the best chorus lines I've ever heard!

This is William Idol's best song

It's too bad he couldn't keep cranking out hits like this.

This is one of my favorite songs of all time. It really should be #1 on this list.

4 Dancing with Myself

This song just shows he was in a punk band before (as a whole the song is punk-ish, the riff is definitely a punk riff) - Metal_Treasure

This song just has so much energy, it's just fantastic. Makes everyone in the vicinity jump up and dance like a monkey.

A brilliant song to get up and dance to, can't help but sing along to this song!

I was honestly expecting this one to be higher and I believe it has potential to be #1. Plus it's the first one I knew so I might be a little bias. - Beatlesboy9

I could have easily suggested other great songs from Charmed Life such as Pumping On Steel, License To Thrill, Prodigal Son. You have to give this album a listen if you never have. A truly amazing album!
