"Rebel L" is a Sesame Street parody of the Billy Idol song, "Rebel Yell", sung by Billy Idle, the rebel L, and a police officer. The Rebel L makes a loud "luh-luh-luh" noise and protests outside of Billy Idle's house at night.

Christopher Cerf provided vocals for the Rebel L (and co-wrote the song), while Ivy Austin is heard as the police officer.


  • This song was directed by Jon Stone and taped on November 7, 1985.[1]
