Rebel Rebel – The Song
“Rebel Rebel” is a song by English singer-songwriter David Bowie. It was released in the UK in February 1974 by RCA Records as the lead single from the album Diamond Dogs. Written and produced by Bowie, the song is based around a distinctive guitar riff reminiscent of the Rolling Stones. Cited as his most-covered track, “Rebel Rebel” has been described as Bowie’s farewell to the glam rock movement that he had helped initiate, as well as being a proto-punk track. Two versions of the song were recorded: the well-known UK single release and the shorter US single release, which featured added background vocals, extra percussion and a new arrangement. Upon its release, the song was a commercial success, in both the UK and the US. The song received critical acclaim for its central guitar riff and strength as a glam anthem. Several publications consider it to be one of Bowie’s greatest songs. It was performed live by Bowie during many of his concert tours and since appeared on many compilation albums.
