Weird Al Yankovic Performs a Growling Version of the Classic Billy Idol Song ‘Rebel Yell’

While performing in Carmel Indiana at the Center for the Performing Arts, the always entertaining “Weird Al” Yankovic once again took a break from his famous parodies to do a straight cover of the song “Rebel Yell“, which included an amazing imitation of singer Billy Idol‘s signature growl.

The very next day in Bethesda, Maryland, Weird Al performed a cover of “Refugee” by the late, great Tom Petty.
