Billy Idol

The rocker's 'Vital Idol: Revitalized' enters Dance/Electronic Album Sales in the top 10.

Billy Idol bursts onto a Billboard dance chart for the first time since 1993, rocking Dance/Electronic Album Sales at No. 9 with Vital Idol: Revitalized.

The set is packed with remixes of the veteran rocker's classics, including takes on "White Wedding" by CRAY, "(Do Not) Stand in the Shadows" by Moby, "Eyes Without a Face" by Tropkillaz, "Rebel Yell" by The Crystal Method and more.

While he boasts a robust history on the Billboard Hot 100 and Mainstream Rock Songs charts, Idol also made himself at home on Dance Club Songs with seven entries in 1981-93, reaching the top 10 with "Mony Mony"/"Baby Talk" (No. 7, November 1981) and "White Wedding" (No. 10, October 1982).
