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


  • In addition to writing this song, Christopher Cerf also provided vocals for the Rebel "L". Ivy Austin is also heard as the policeperson.
