Rebel Yell Lyrics

Last night a little dancer came dancin' to my door
Last night a little angel Came pumping cross my floor
She said "Come on baby I got a licence for love
And if it expires pray help from above"

In the midnight hour she cried- "more, more,...

    Sounds a lot like the plot of True Romance. Sex worker and desperate man fall in love. They rebel against her oppressor to be together. Tragic love

    Billy Idol was in need of something, he got drunk and prayed. The Lord finally answered his prayer and the Angel came to him. She said the lord gave her the license ticket to her. In terms of the agreement, he was granted the money and she gave him more more. The more he got the more she.cried with a Rebel Yell. However, As part of the agreement,if he received the Angel that came dancing to his door, she bestows hell from above, to him and those who deceived. KARMA!!!!!!!
    As it is said, KARMA is A BITCH, AND SHE IS REAL HARD TO PAY!!!

    He said it in an interview. It was when he was with generation x. He was on break and went to the bathroom. A groupie came in and gave him a blowjob in the bathroom. Nothing romantic or drug related.

    It was about a beautiful young girl. Not just beautiful outside but inside as well and intelligent. Hard combination to find. At the time he really needed and she was from the south. That's where Rebel came from cried out for more more more drugs perhaps sex.

    I think we can all guess the meaning, or have a general part of an idea of the meaning. It's about this girl, most likely an entertainer of sorts, choosing a guy and wanting to make love, hence the "Come on, Baby. I've a license for love." And this kind of gives me "The Drug In Me Is You" by Falling In Reverse vibes. Simply because love can be like a drug; addicting and making people cry out for more. Just like the chorus says, "In the midnight hour, she cried more more more. With a rebel yell, she cried more more more."

    This song is definitely about heroin. Users often refer to it as "her or "she"

    In 1803, North Maxwell, Pyke, invited Matthew Middleton Christian, To His Home In Amsterdam. He Claimed That His Peruvian Toprch was a backstab, but that the rebel flag should live forever in it's name.

    its like when you eat something for the first and you like it, you want more. This song is kinda say that something bad for you can get addicting. I think that's what BVB and Billy Idol were going for.

    I basically know this song...but it must have some type of meaning ...I'm still trying to figure out the meaning behind "Rebel yell"

    I think it’s about a man falling for a Woman. It started out with him just wanting sex... but she enticed him just by being loving carefree self... he fell for her... became addicted to her... fantasizes about her... and now realizes he loved her... still loves her... but he believes it’s too late... her openness is gone... everything he loved is gone... she is gone.... but he’d sell his soul to get it all back. My ex plays this song every time we are together.

    as a matter of fact there is more to the song than the obvious.

    he talks about it in a 1984 interview.


    Have a look and then rethink your comment..

    Rebel Yell happens to be a bourbon he drank with Rolling Stones artists, and he wrote a song about it, but it also has elements from situations he found himself in.
