Leave it to Billy Idol, of all rock idols, to make hands down one of the sexiest videos of the '80s, the decade that basically introduced music videos and MTV (which did, believe it or not, used to play videos all the time) to mainstream America.

Actually, 'Charmed Life,' the album that spawned the 'Cradle of Love' single, came out in the spring of 1990, but that's splitting hairs. Idol was a wild child of the '80s, and 'Cradle' -- directed by the David Fincher, who would make his name with 'The Game,' 'Fight Club' and 'Zodiac,' among other blockbusters -- captures the decadence of the decade in a way that only a rebel yell-er like he can.
