Whiplash Smile is the third studio album by English rock vocalist Billy Idol. It was released on 20 October 1986 by Chrysalis Records. After his successful album Rebel Yell (1983), Idol continued his collaboration with Keith Forsey and Steve Stevens while writing and producing songs for the album. Commercially, the album noted a success similar to his previous album

His previous album, Rebel Yell, had pretty much taken punk rock to the mainstream, and Idol had made the most of the MTV era's cult of personality with his peroxide good looks and bad-boy-next-door persona. But what Idol had probably shown the greatest talent for over his many-year climb to stardom was a willingness (and no small ability) to adapt with changing musical times.

I am a big fan of Billy Idol and feel that "Whiplash Smile" is his best work. I also think it is the best quality of sound also, especially on album. I highly recommend this album for those who love 80's music, rock, and Billy Idol. One person found this helpful.

But the compromises he’s made along the way seem to have made him ambivalent about his success. And the end of his seven-year relationship with dancer Perri Lister may have helped to put his stardom in perspective for him. During the painful, introspective year and a half Idol spent making the record, he returned to the music he grew up with. In Worlds Forgotten Boy, Idol calls for a miracle jo. rock & roll boy to rouse him from his lethargy, and Stevens responds with a solo that crackles like a severed telephone wire.
