as mentioned on the members thread, slaughter and the dogs - you're ready now: and boomtown rats - barefootin':

We once spent a lovely lunch time with William where we were joking that Billy Idol's cover must have been his oddest but most valuable cover version.

William said 'no no that sold 4 million copies, so it was good, but 5 million copies of the album with Homer Simpson's Born Under A Bad Sign surely beats it'.

Very good chance Pete. Label, writers etc. etc.

 

The lead vocal lets it down more than anything. Very weak. But maybe a rushed production job for a throw away B-side.
