BILLY IDOL: Don't interview me about my Cyberpunk album unless you've read Neuromancer.

WILLIAM GIBSON AS THE NARRATOR: The first thing that became really apparent was that Billy hadn't read it.

I couldn't tell you why, but the Wikipedia page for Billy Idol's Cyberpunk has given me the giggles (probably because it's top to bottom such a weird capsule of 1993, like who cares about Penn Gillette's opinions on cyberpunk or music?)


Everybody's talkin' bout the new sound
Funny, but it's still cyberpunk to me 🎶

Sing us the song you're the cyber man
Sing us a song tonight
Well we're all in the mood for the beeps and boops
And you've got us feelin' alright

@dustin 😆

Someone needs to make a synthwave cover of this

@erinbee I'd buy a Billy Joel Cyberpunk album. I love a sci-fi classic rock record. It'd pair nicely with Warren Zevon's Transverse City.
